We’re a Deep Purple tribute band looking for a keyboard player to join.
Except for myself (vocals), all members are Japanese in their 50s/60s and are very seasoned players.
Our previous keyboardist quit due to his financial situation.
So far, we’ve had one gig, and with your addition, we’re looking forward to more gigs to come!
We rehearse about twice a month in Kita-Senju (北千住) on weekends.
Japanese language skills are a plus, but not a must.
We mainly cover Mark II materials, but we also plays songs like “Burn” from the Mark III lineup.
Below is our current song list for your reference, but you don’t have to know how to play all of them right now:
- Highway star
- Child in time
- Black night
- Space truckin’
- Strange kind of woman
For those interested, just shoot me a demo. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Looking forward to hearing from you soon \m/

Child in time:
Hey guys, it’s been a while since I posted anything here, so I thought I’d bring you up to speed with what I’ve been doing.
My friend and I formed a Black Sabbath (Ian Gillan era) tribute band in Tokyo last year and we’ve been working on a set since (basically the whole Born Again album). I’m of course the one behind the mic, hehe 🙂 Check out one of the songs we’ve performed live so far – Born Again. That’s also my favorite song from the album, but I gotta say that this song requires quite a wide vocal range to say the least, aside from the tone and other aspects one must have to handle this piece. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
