Uzo’s House

Uzo's House

Calling All Musicians: Auditions for Uzo’s House Scheduled for Sat., June 1

Co-directed by Wiley Bartels on drums (sophomore at Guilford High School) and Abigail Connolly on vocals, bass, and keys (junior at Guilford High School), this band has a second bass guitar and drummer as well as two guitar players, a keyboard player, and a singer. Rehearsals will be held on the third Friday of every month from 1-3:00 pm. Drums, keyboard, guitar and bass amplifiers as well as microphones and full PA system are provided free of charge.

Expectations for Uzo’s House Band

  • Come to monthly rehearsals (currently scheduled for Saturday prior to Get Your Act Together)
  • Participate in Get Your Act Together (last Saturdays 1:00 – 3:00)
  • Open The Groove with 2-3 songs (maybe open second set as well)
  • Participate in group chat

Ideally, we’ll have enough musicians to staff two entire bands, and band members can switch in and out according to availability.
