Professional steel band looking 4 additional members (Lexington/Columbia/Irmo/Chapin/Gilbert/Blythewood)

Well-established, professional steel band is looking for additional members for part time, PAID work. From May until September, we have more work that we can accept and we don't want to turn down the gigs that are coming our way. The band currently has 8 members and we perform as a duo, trio and quartet for weddings, corporate events, tourist attractions, and festivals throughout South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia.

We are looking for:
1. percussionist capable of performing multiple auxiliary percussion instruments at the same time
(for example, shaker with one hand and conga drum with the other while playing a cowbell with a foot pedal, tambourine with one hand and timbales with the other, etc.)
2. individuals who OWN THEIR OWN steel drum

We do not currently need set players, but it is possible someone with drum set skills could easily be trained for our "Caribbean percussion" spot.

Individual needs to be:
*Clean-cut in appearance with the ability to pass a criminal background check
*Personable with a professional attitude
*Owns reliable transportation
*Available to perform at least 2 week nights and one weekend a month
*Ability to practice a musical instrument where you live
*Physically able to load and set up instruments 40+ lbs.

This band is extremely well-established and individuals will need to be EXCELLENT at accepting musical direction no matter how many years you've been in the business. We have to make sure our clients are getting the EXACT same "product" no matter which band members we send.
