DAve Stewart - Orianthi - Be My BandDave Stewart, the co-founder of Eurythmics, is producing BeMyBand in collaboration with TalentHouse and his company Weapons of Mass Entertainment. Stewart is also behind First Artist Bank, a bank he established this year especially for the music industry.

Orianthi is inviting all musicians to submit a video of their best live performance for the chance to join her onstage in Los Angeles.


Creative Brief

Every aspiring musician dreams of playing alongside a headlining artist in a legendary venue while being cheered on by the crowd. Now that dream will become a reality as the biggest stars in music invite musicians around the world to become part of BeMyBand!


The first act to take part in #BeMyBand is the talented and acclaimed Orianthi. The renowned guitarist has four spots to fill on stage at her upcoming concert and is looking for one of each of the following:

  • drummer
  • bassist
  • guitarist
  • keyboard player

To be considered, submit a short video of you playing your instrument at your best. Also, ensure that your Talenthouse portfolio is complete with content that showcases yourself as an artist.


Up to 10 musicians for each instrument will be chosen as finalists and asked to play original tracks from Orianthi herself. Of those finalists, four carefully selected artists will be chosen and flown to Los Angeles for six amazing days and nights, culminating in an incredible performance live on stage with Orianthi as her band for a night! The concert will be taped and aired on TV as part of the #BeMyBand series.
