The Port St. Lucie Tropical Jazz Band is currently auditioning talented musicians for the following parts: trombone, timbales, congas, bongo, bass, and vocals (ability to sing in Spanish required).
Advanced reading and technical ability
Strong interest in learning Latin jazz
Experience soloing and improvising in a jazz band
Ability to commit to weekly rehearsals and performances throughout the Treasure Coast
Interested musicians are invited to schedule an audition so they can demonstrate their playing and reading proficiency. If the musician is invited to join the band, he or she will be given copies of the charts to begin the process of understanding and mastering the repertoire.
The goal of rehearsals is to teach players the necessary skills they need to properly perform the style and vocabulary of Latin jazz. Rehearsals provide a low-pressure environment where musicians gain the fundamentals of Latin jazz while experiencing ensemble playing, soloing, and improvising.
Please contact us for audition requests with the following information: name, instrument, level of proficiency, experience in Latin jazz, music education, and performance experience.
