Whether you are about to perform at sea for the first time, or an experienced guest entertainer, I can help you ensure that your live musicians have the great charts they need on the night to make your show a success.
Already have backing tracks? I can write your charts to match your tracks. Same keys, same arrangements.
Need material adapted for cruise ship orchestra? No problem. I can take your source material and orchestrate your charts to make the most of the modern day cruise ship orchestra line-up.
Typically, a modern cruise ship orchestra consists of Drums, Keyboards, Electric and Bass Guitar, and three, four or five brass (Trumpet 1 or 2, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone and Trombone).
My cruise ship-friendly arrangements are tailored to work with these orchestras. I supply every instrument part you will need to make your show work.
I am extremely experienced at arranging for cruise ship brass section, and will ensure that your horn parts are arranged effectively. Typically I arrange for 5 brass, but the same parts can be taken to a 3 or 4 brass line-up on another ship and will still sound full.
If necessary, I can also create click tracks. This is a good idea if your show relies on track elements not covered by the orchestra – eg. backing vocals, strings, extra keyboards and synths. The click tracks blend with the live band on the night, resulting in a jaw-dropping full sound.
My charts are performed regularly by a wide variety of professional entertainers onboard P&O, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean cruise ships.
