Waiting for in my flight to Miami now! Based on the music they sent me, it doesn’t look like I’ll be playing clarinet, but I have it just in case.
That is very encouraging, having just come back from a cruise where there were no bands to be had. Maybe a piano player, and an acoustic guitar/singer combo... but no bands. The stage shows used canned music. Really, really depressing.The bands killer- especially at the pop stuff. We do different shows each night: "Boogie Nights," "Motown," "80s," etc.
I hope you wrote that on the comment cards at the end of the cruise - they obsess over those things!That is very encouraging, having just come back from a cruise where there were no bands to be had.

Grumps.... do you mind sharing which Cruise Line used canned music for their shows? I would be horrified to pay for a cruise & have this happen to me!!!!
Yeah, I can actually confirm this. We only play one of the mini-productions per week, with tracks, and in ears, but plenty for micing. It's all tenor- I could play flute on the first song, but they would have to cut the track or I'd have to learn the improvised solo, so it's not really worth it to me.Carnival, out of Baltimore.
Merlin! We're there every other week. I'm in St. Thomas right now, San Juan tomorrow, and Grand Turk the following day. Where are you headed?Hey Bubba, I'm on the P&O Britannia starting Jan 9. We're in the Eastern Caribbean.
I love it! My family sends me pictures of frozen cars, and I respond with pictures on the beach.Enjoy your weather! The Cincinnati area is not so weather-pleasant right now!
