Legend says that if you head out to the countryside on a hot day, when the sun sits at the top of the sky and the winds are still...
You'll come to a crossroad you wont find on any map, there in the haze you'll find Ol' Scratch sittin' on an old guitar case pickin his strings...
Strike a deal with Ol' Scratch and what you desire most will be yours, and he'll take your soul in return...

You and your friends, an aspiring Blues band with little luck, all of you are fresh out of school and have little interest in a real job, preferring the route of a performer instead. Show after pitiful show with out any sort of break is starting to take it's toll on your pockets, just before you all decide to give it all up you go for one last shot, New Orleans. If your band cant make it in the city of Blues, then theres little chance you'll make it anywhere, but just how far will you go for your fame?

'Tis a mighty sad tale what happened to them kids, if im to re-tell it, I hope you dont mind if i start from the beginnin'. They started out over in L.A. a group of teens fresh outta school with no jobs, no money, and big ambitions. They played show after show but thier music got no recognition over in California, not like they was wantin' anyways, but they continued on. Eventually they scrounged up enough coin and decided to try thier luck here in Nawlins, but when they got here it was the same deal, small shows and no one to willing sign a record deal. A week went went by and no one heard from the kids, I had thought they had givin' up and headed home, until one day, out of no where they came back with a sound that you'd think came straight from an angels lips. They brought the blues back when it had almost died out completely, signed a record deal and made to the radio, then on to television not long after. They lived like stars for a while, everyone knew thier names, but what happened after that...


Singer- [Female Prefered]

Re: [OOC] Legend of Ol' Scratch

I kinda want to reserve the drummer, but I have a question first before I decide. What exactly is the storyline here? Or will our characters just sorta be...roaming?
