A duo/trio should include at least one singer and play only acoustic. Voice live effects, or loopers for guitarist is allowed, but no backing tracks, midi or mp3 files. The repertoire has to include oldies, disco and other popular music, ballroom dance (cha-cha, tango, rumba, waltzer etc.), jazz standards and evergreens. They play music that’s more “toned down” to create a more relaxing atmosphere.
Party bands are typically 5 to 6-piece cover bands that include at least 2 singer and play covers in many different styles of music, also German ‘disco fox’ as well (is a MUST). Please pay attention for the background vocals behind the the lead singer. Basic instrumentation: bass, drums, guitar, keyboards, with at least two singer and several other people that are capable of background vocals. Such bands must have large repertoires heavily centered around rock and roll and Top 40’s pop; Motown, country and blues should also be well-represented.
Cruise ship classical ensembles are generally comprised 4-piece groups of string. They should have a heavily classical repertoire, although arrangements of Broadway songs, movie themes and other popular music are also encouraged.
