Solange Knowles is following big sister Beyonce’s lead and recruiting a band of unknowns to join her on tour.
Beyonce held auditions for a dance troupe to appear in her videos and perform live with her and now Solange is hoping to form her own band the same way.
She will be holding auditions for her Hadley Street Dreams Band in her adopted home of Los Angeles on 6 March (08).
And she’s hoping that her new recruits will be able to double up as dancers too.
A spokesman for Knowles says, "The Hadley Street Dreams, a ’60s-inspired full band, will perform all live shows with Solange in support of her upcoming album, to be released this August."
Knowles’ requirements include two female backing singers, a drummer, guitar player, bass player and two pianists.
Musicians who cannot make it to the March audition are invited to submit an try-out video to Knowles’ website.
