Looking for Bass Guitarist/Bassist (San Antonio)

Arcadia Path near Potranco Road

google map

Original Rock Band, Accidental Alchemy, is looking for Bass Guitarist. We currently have a committed vocalist, lead guitarist, drummer, and rhythm guitarist. We create/play modern and alternative rock. (Our covers are mostly ‘90s rock/alternative/grunge and a few from other eras.)

We all have professional careers outside the band so the band is more like a hobby than an income producer (unless by some miracle we hit the big time, then we’d quit our jobs!)

We are currently seeking to create new music, record, and play the local area (preferably our songs but covers too). We rehearse once a week (possibly twice a week if we need to when preparing for a show) and hope to play out at least once a month.

We do not want to waste your time or ours so there are a few prerequisites. We want someone who: Rock is their primary genre, has recordings (we will not schedule an audition unless we’ve heard your chops, low quality recording are ok), is responsible, has a job/career, a car, and their own equipment. Interested bassists must be familiar with our covers and be comfortable in that genre. We are looking for real band member not just a session musician. Bring your skill and flavor.
You can see us at Accidental Alchemy | Facebook. Our ages and influences are:

• Anthony: Lead Vocalist- 44 y/o; Tool, Stone Temple Pilots, Incubus, 311, and Sublime
• Alex: Lead Guitar- 43 y/o; Guns ‘n Roses, Bush, Nirvana, Modest Mouse, Twenty-One Pilots
• Ken: Drummer- 48 y/o; 80’s hair bands, Rush, Stryper, Ratt, Bon Jovi
• Jack: Rhythm guitar- 59 y/o; The Cars, Tom Petty, Green Day, The Offspring, Counting Crows

We have a number of original songs with riffs/ideas for several more in the works. You can hear our recordings at: Stream Accidental Alchemy music | Listen to songs, albums, playlists for free on SoundCloud

We recently played a house party with a bassist that used to play with us but has moved on to another band. There is some really rough video if you search:
