Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, OH is looking for a trombonist to perform in its "beach band" from June 3 through August 20 and possibly later.
Great opportunity to perform for the summer!
The Beach Band is a 7-person group that plays essentially mini-marching band arrangements of pop and rock style material. The instrumentation consists of 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, a sousaphone/tuba, and a marching snare and bass drum. There is also some fun, basic movement involved in the performances, and the group directly interacts with the guests during their sets. All material is learned onsite during our one week rehearsal period. Rehearsals will take place from June 3 through June 9, 2017. Rehearsals are paid at a flat hourly rate of $11.60 per hour, and they normally rehearse about 8 hours per day.
The Beach Band then begins performances on Saturday, June 10th. They do 6 sets per day, in different areas of the park, and each set is about 22 minutes long. Performances continue 6 days per week through August 20. 2017. Performances are paid at a daily rate of $92.80 per day; for a 6 day performance week, that would come to $556.80 per week.
Cedar Point can also provide housing for a nominal fee, should you be interested. Live Entertainment staff are placed in some of their apartment-style units, and the cost is approximately $63 per week.
All housing units are multiple-occupancy, furnished, and the weekly cost covers wifi & all utilities.
