I’m putting together a new party band with the intention of securing a contract with Celebrity Cruises, who I have already done two contracts with. I have an agent in place who is ready to take band information and video footage to send to the cruise line.

The contract will be approximately 4 months long, and we’ll play an average of 3 or 4 x 45 minute sets a day, with occasional days off, so you’ll need to have a confidently strong voice. There will also be a male vocalist (yet to be appointed) who will do some lead vocals, but you’ll cover the majority of the repertoire.

You’ll need to be confident with a wide range of contemporary styles. We’ll play basically anything popular from the 50’s until now: 50’s rock n’ roll, motown, soul, funk, disco, 80’s/90’s pop, Top 40, etc. Not really any jazz, as there is a jazz band on the ship too.

You’ll also need to get a C1D visa and a full PEME Medical certificate. These do cost money, but it’s worth it.

The pay will be around $2250 a month (I’m gonna try and get us more, but we’ll see)

Previous experience isn’t required, I don’t mind taking on new people. You get paid to play music and travel the world, it’s an amazing job, and a great way of saving money as accommodation and food is provided.

Rehearsals will be taking place up north, somewhere around Leeds/Manchester.. I don’t really mind where you’re based, but you’re gonna need to be willing to travel. If you’re right for the job, I’ll be open to negotiating how the rehearsals work.. I might rehearse the band without a singer sometimes, so you wouldn’t need to travel as much. We’ll figure it out!

Anyway, if you have any questions feel free to message me!

Thanks!
