DRUMS

Drums are the most powerful instrument on a stage.

Our style is more simple than complicated and more authoritative than impressive. Pocket is key!  Our fills are simple and infrequent. What we play complements the other instruments in the band. We are aware of where the song is going so we can lead into each section of the song. We build simply – the bigger we get, the simpler and more open we get.

COMPETENCIES WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN DRUMMERS:

  •  Ability to play to a click

  • Ability to play a song as the recording

  • Play with simplicity

  • A powerful attack on the drums/yet not killing the drums

 

PLAY THIS SONG FOR AUDITION (PICK ONE):

Lion and the Lamb- Leeland/Bethel
Reckless Love - Cory Asbury

BASS

Bass is the foundation that our music is built upon.

As a bass player, our job is to hold down the substance of the song. We are not flashy players. We can play fills when needed, but know how and where to place them. We match to the drummer ensuring the groove is locked in. Here at Vine Church, we prefer to have bass play with a pick as it gives the tone more attack, yet being able to use your fingers for other tonal necessities in songs.

COMPETENCIES WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN BASSISTS:

  •  Ability to play to a click

  • Ability to play a song as the recording

  • Ability to rhythmically sync with a drummer

  • Ability to play with pick

  • A basic understanding of the Nashville Number System

  • Aguilar Tone Hammer

  • EHX Micro Synth

ELECTRIC GUITAR

Electric guitar creates texture and familiarity in worship.

Tone is important in playing electric guitar. We use overdrive tastefully, delay in an understated way, reverb that’s not too heavy and have an overall clear and full sonic quality. We can play lead lines but can create an ambient atmosphere when we aren’t the lead. We can improvise when needed, but do so tastefully. We are always aware of what the keys player is playing so we complement each other rather than step on one other.

KEYS

Keys create atmosphere and make transitions happen throughout a service.

We are keys players; not merely pianists. We shoot for simple as opposed to cluttered or busy. We generally have a pad layered beneath what we play to create atmosphere and texture. It is our responsibility to anticipate and ensure transitions happen smoothly. Whether moving between songs or shifting from the sermon to ministry time. We are the bridge that connects the two parts. Keys are rarely the standout instrument, but we can play lead lines when the music calls for it. We are always aware of what the electric guitar is playing so we complement each other rather than step on one other.

COMPETENCIES WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN KEYS PLAYERS:

  •  Ability to play to a click

  • Ability to play a song as the recording

  • A basic understanding of the Nashville Number System

  • A basic understanding/willingness to learn Ableton/Reason/Mainstage, Playback/Loop Community etc

  • Ability to create and play the clicks/pads/tracks using Abelton/Playback/Loop Community

  • Ability to play a simple pad

  • Make smooth transitions between songs and other service segments

PLAY THIS SONG FOR AUDITION (PLEASE PLAY BOTH):

Cornerstone- Hillsong
You Came- Bethel

STRINGS/WOOD WIND

Strings/Wood wind provide depth and beauty to an existing melody.

As a string/wood wind player, simplicity is the key in worship music. We play counterpoint to the vocal melody — adding melodic lines to the space between lyrics. We play with confidence and good tone quality. Our entrances are strong and confident. Ability to play by ear is preferred, but not mandatory.

COMPETENCIES WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN STRING/WOOD WIND:

  •  Ability to play counterpoint

  • Simplicity in melody choice

  • Good tone quality

  • Ability to flow musically with a band

PLAY THIS SONG FOR AUDITION (PICK ONE):

Strings: Reckless Love - Cory Asbury

Saxophone: How Great is our God - Chris Tomlin

VOCALS

We aren’t just singers; we are worship leaders.

We don’t just lead songs, but we have the privilege of leading people!  Singing on the frontline is just as much about countenance and leadership as it is about the voice.  We are submitted to the leader of the set and help support them and through joy and singing for Jesus not yourself.  In a given set, a singer may move in and out of singing harmony as a support worship leader and singing lead. As team players, we are always willing and capable of doing both. Whether singing lead or harmony, we are engaged with the crowd through our countenance. When singing harmony, we blend our voices to the lead, rather than having our own style. When leading songs, we do so with confidence and passion.

COMPETENCIES WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN VOCALIST:

  •  Ability to play to a click

  • Ability to sing lead and/or harmony

  • Ability to control vibrato to blend

  • Good stage presence/Joyful countenance

  • Confident leadership

Male Vox- Reckless Love or Cornerstone
Female Vox- Forever, What a Beautiful Name
