will be shutting down Monday, October 29, 2018.

It's with great sadness that I announce that Syracuse Bands will be shutting down at the end of this month. It's been awesome building and managing this site since 2005. Through the years I've been proud to host this site for all local musicians and helping to promote them. However, over the last handful of years, there have been fewer users on the site, and more bands are joining other platforms with a larger audience. These, along with a few other reasons, I've decided to close down the site.

Thank you all for using the site and being a part of Syracuse Bands.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out -

Lead guitarist w lead vocalist abilities for Rock/Pop/Country Band
Posted: Sun Mar 29, 2015
Established current rock pop and country band with seasoned musicians looking for a lead guitarist with strong lead vocal and back up vocal abilities. The ability to be the sole guitarist, working with a keyboard player who can switch between rhythm and lead as well, is a plus. Ideally, the candidate would be able to handle about 15 lead vocal songs with examples like : Halfway Gone (Lifeline), Found Out about You (Gin Blossoms), Drive By (Train) Beers Ago (Toby Keith) I don't Wanna Be (Gavin DeGraw) Jessie's Girl (Rich Springfield) Look Good in My Shirt (Keith Urban) It's My Life (Bon Jovi) and a few more.

We rehearse in the Cazenovia area. We do not gig full time, so expect to only be booked 1-3 times a month. We spent many years gigging for the money, now we do it for fun.

Can you play Lead Guitar? Do you wanna play bitchin upbeat ska/punk?
Posted: Wed Jun 02, 2010
Let’s cut to the chase here, a very well established ska/punk band consisting of distinguished gentleman ranging in age from 24-29 is in desperate need to replace our former lead guitarist who had to leave the country. We are all quite experienced and play hard but do it for fun, we are not naive, and we aren’t going to be a rock stars. We don’t really care what you look like or where you came from, if you can lay down some leads and your a decent human being your in. So if this sounds like you or someone you know, contact me () and let’s see what happens.
