Drummers Required for Showband Onboard Carnival Cruise Ships
Carnival offers two unique opportunities, Lounge 2.0 and our traditional Showband.
Our Lounge 2.0 format utilizes a four piece rhythm section (piano, guitar, bass, and drums) plus two vocalists (male and female). These talented musicians rehearse together for one month and then join their vessel for a five month contract.
What are we looking for?
- Extensive experience and knowledge of pop/rock music.
- An ability to read a variety of different styles of charts.
- Amazing interpretive skills.
- Great showmanship and the ability to become an entertainer.
Our Traditional Showband format features a six to eleven-piece showband. Typically, this group consists of a four piece rhythm section (piano, guitar, bass, and drums), a female vocalist, a horn section (trumpet, trombone, and sax), and sometimes a solo sax position. Our talented showband musicians are often asked to sight read complicated music, perform a wide variety of diverse musical styles, and accompany production shows.
