Anyone going to Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show?

Is anyone here going to Fort Lauderdale for the October 26th boat show? I'll be in Florida next week, but have to leave before the boat show.

There is usually lots of work down in Fort Lauderdale at this time of year. Contact the Fort Lauderdale crew houses / hostels, and they may be able to give you an idea of what the current work situation is.

Seven Steps To A Successful Audition

By Marco Kasel

Music Auditions for Cruise Ship Jobs

I have been a musician since the tender age of 7 and in my career I've passed a larger number of auditions all of which have taught me something. These days, however, as the owner of a talent agency, I seem to be learning a disproportioned amount more about these same auditions. There is something to be said about looking at an issue from different perspectives.

In this article, I want to shed some light on what an audition process looks like from the point of view of the "auditioner" rather than the "auditionee". I'll give you seven tips that hopefully provide some help.

I should mention that my company, Oceanbound Entertainment Inc., hires musicians, bands, and variety acts for placement on cruise ships and thus the auditions I'll talk about will mostly relate to cruise line entertainment auditions.

Let me quickly outline the various types of auditions you can encounter when applying for a job on a cruise ship.

Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2006

The 47th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is going to take place October 26th to 30th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This is an excellent time to be in Fort Lauderdale for day work with luxury yachts. It is best to arrive in Fort Lauderdale ahead of time because the boats need to be prepared for the Boat Show.
