Hi guys,

We’re looking for a new drummer and we’re holding open auditions. 

Ryan Bruce has been holding it down with me since the release of Public Announcement in April of 2008 and has been a huge part of what I do and has become a great friend. But, there’s a time for everything. Ryan has a family now, my touring schedule is more demanding than ever, and the season is just changing for all of us. So it’s extremely bittersweet that we have to say goodbye to Ryan and hello to a new drummer. We love you Ry. 

Can you please help spread the word, through facebook, twitter, to agents, managers, bands, musicians, music departments at churches, etc? 

Here’s the info: 

What: Dominic Balli is auditioning a new drummer. 

Who: Drummers. Preferable good ones, who like reggae, like traveling, and like to have a good time. All applicants must live within driving distance of L.A./Ventura County, CA*. All applicants must have a flexible schedule. In addition to monthly (sometimes weekly fly dates and local touring, all applicants must be able to tour multiple times a year for at least two weeks at a time (possibly longer depending demand). Each applicant must be a legal U.S. resident and be able to travel in and out of the U.S. without hindrance.  All applicants must be professional level musicians who have a desire to serve the people (no divas please ;)). It probably goes without saying that the music is strongly rooted in reggae with elements of hip hop, rock, and pop so all applicants must be able to get down with that style. We are looking for a broad range of ethnicities in our applicants and love all shapes, races and sizes. Additionally, while I love and respect people of all faiths and people of no faith, due to the nature of what I do, we are only auditioning applicants who are born again followers of Jesus Christ.

*Note: Unless there’s someone on the other side of the country who is absolutely incredible, all applicants must live within driving distance of L.A./Ventura County, CA. 

When: Live auditions are tentatively scheduled for Thursday, August 16th in Ventura CA, but preliminary auditions will be done through video submissions. 

How to audition: Step one: send an email to dominicballimusic@gmail.com. We’ll take it from there. 

Please help us spread the word if you can.  

If you are interested, have questions, or have any leads please email: 

Thanks much!
