"What an amazing means of travel and performance opportunity. Landau Music provides the tools and resources necessary for a successful and fun professional experience." - Matt B.
"Fellow musicians can only dream to have an agent like Michael from Landau Music" - Anton M.
"Working for Landau Music was a BLAST! I made memories singing with "The Coverdales" that I will never forget, thanks to Mike and his hard work getting us work out on the ocean. If you're wondering whether a position on board one of Landau Music's ships or other venues is for you, trust me, you'll be in great hands!" - Ryan A.
"I have worked as a guitarist on two consecutive contracts, three different Halcat bands, with Holland America, the Eurodam, and most recently, The Westerdam. This is thanks to the hard work of Michael Landau, who secured both jobs for me. Michael has me booked 1 ½ year in advance. In today's economy, this is almost unheard of. I am in between contracts, and in January, I go out for my third, which will take me to Hawaii for 3 months. I so look forward to it! I absolutely love my job as a guitarist. I believe I have the best position! I love living on a cruise ship. The last contract was even better than the first. The musicians were great, the people I worked with were fantastic, opportunities for creative expression abounded, and the itineraries were phenomenal." - Dennis M.
"Landau Music and the cruising experience has truly changed my life
forever and those who have the fortunate opportunity to audition and
work with Landau Music will one day understand the enthusiasm that I
cannot even express through words." - Jared L.
"I have worked on cruise ships for less than two years and have already seen half of the world and have had a great time doing it, meeting some great players and friends along the way. Landau Music was a great help and aid to accomplishing this and the interaction I've had has been personal and accommodating. I'm glad to have found an agent who is as responsive and sympathetic to my goals as Landau Music." - Brent M.
"A typical day would be waking up, traveling to a beach to snorkel or site see for 4 hours, then cap my night off doing what I love: play music! Then wake up to do it all over again! Landau made it easy for me to find positions on a ship. Other musicians with other agencies told me how jealous they were of how good I had it with Landau. So what are you waiting for?? Audition now and go see the world!" - Aaron R.
"My two contracts with Landau Music were outstanding. When I first learned about the opportunity to perform on a cruise ship, I knew that I could rely on Mike to make it happen. Landau Music gave my a cappella group the chance to have an incredible time doing what we loved to do in an environment in which any musician would kill to perform. Where else can you travel the ENTIRE world (ships go everywhere!!), meet people from places you can't even pronounce, and do what you love to do? Oh yea, and get paid for it! I would, hands down, recommend Landau Music's services to ANY musician." - Adam R.
"I can accurately say that Landau Music has
definitely improved the quality of my life. The travel, the adventure, the money and most of all
the people have improved the quality of my life more than I could have
imagined. Thank you Michael and staff for all the work you've done for
me and so many deserving musicians." - David
"I LOVE working for Landau music, and would do it again in a heartbeat! They are always looking out for their clients, and do everything possible to make it a great contract for the musicians. Today I climbed a mountain in Ushuaia, Argentina, the southern most city in the world, almost on the exact opposite side of the world that I climbed Mt. Roberts in Juneau Alaska...an amazing experience that I never would have had if it weren't for working with Landau Music. I have been able to see almost all of North and South America, and have been able to make good money while doing it, all while doing what I love - singing. It's a great company with even better people running it. Looking forward to my next contract and working with Landau Music again." - Owen S.
"Working for Landau Music has been an extremely exciting and rewarding experience. As a member of an A cappella quartet, I have visited more places in the world in 6 months than I thought was possible. I have greatly enjoyed getting to meet many new people, trying all kinds of new foods, and seeing a dozen or more different countries." - Drew K.
"Working on a cruise ship is great! In fact, I don’t even think of it as work. I get to play music, and the rest of the time I’m seeing the world. Two great things rolled into one!" - Thomas L.
"Being represented by Landau Music puts a professional stamp on me as a performer and provides me with comprehensive logistics and performance details to ensure smooth contracts on cruise ships. Michael Landau is a remarkable talent agent ! " - Max D.
"Being introduced to the cruise ship entertainment industry through Landau Music has changed my life. I'm seeing the world, and enjoying every breath taking port of call!" - Keith T.
“Working with Michael was very nice. I really liked his approach, support and professionalism.” - Mathias S.
"Working on a cruise ship has been, hands down, the coolest experience of my life so far. Getting to travel for free, seeing some of the most unbelievable sights the world has to offer, get paid on top of that, all the while getting to do what I love - it's truly been an amazing opportunity. I can't wait to go out again in June." - Langdon Q.
"Singing on the ship has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I have had the opportunity to see amazing places, make friends from all over the world, and get paid to do what I love, make music. Landau Music has been instrumental in making this happen for me. They have been so helpful. I couldn't ask for better representation." - Michael B.
"Our band has traveled the world because of Landau Music. We are so fortunate to have the Landau Agency behind us, and look forward to many more years together! Thanks Landau!!!" - Della M.
"I love every thing about working on ships; traveling to exotic ports, the people, the culture. I never would've thought I could actually get paid for this kind of experience." - Justin W.
"This was one of the greatest times of my life and I wouldn't trade it
for the world. It's an amazing opportunity and I can't thank Landau
Music enough." - Tyler T.
Landau Music is a premier music agency representing entertainers and musicians from around the world. We primarily work with musicians looking to work in cruise entertainment or as cruise ship entertainers. We also place musicians in high-end hotels and resorts.
We are a recognized brand in providing cruise ship entertainment and have extensive contacts with some of the best cruise lines in the world. We place our talented musicians in 5-star cruise ships offering them an opportunity to travel and experience the world while providing music and entertainment to an appreciative audience. Music and entertainment are an integral part of a cruise experience and they go a long way in setting up the right mood for the vacationers. So cruise companies are always looking for high-quality performers who can add the right touch to their cruises.
Landau music is the best possible agent for musicians who have a thirst for travel and adventure and the ability to perform with the best on a nightly basis. Our contracts are typically three to six months long and so entertainers should be willing to sign up for the duration. In that time though, they can have the experience of working while on vacation – they can explore the ports during the day, practice with exciting musical partners if they choose and have the joy of performing to a relaxed audience and contributing to the great ambience of the best cruise ships.
You may have some basic questions about what it means to be a cruise musician. Do you have to be able to do other things on the ship? Do you get to enjoy the facilities the ship offers? How are logistics like payment and laundry to be handled? We can walk you through all these details. Those who join a crew as cruise ship entertainers are not required to do any other tasks while on the ship – you will have to help with safety drills which can take place once or twice a cruise. You are welcome to use areas such as the gym at non-peak hours although there are restrictions about the pool and guest rooms. You will be paid in US dollars and will have to declare the amount for taxes. As you can see, questions that seem daunting when listed can be addressed fairly easily because we are an established music agency with extensive experience behind us.
Landau Music is all about offering a highly professional and above-board representation for talented musicians. We have been in the business on both ends and understand the frustrations of working with dubious contracts and dishonest agents. Michael Landau and his staff are dedicated to making sure that nobody leaves Landau Music because of these kinds of disagreeable experiences. We believe in the excitement of being cruise ship entertainers and are looking for partners who can appreciate the magic of cruise music.
Musicians who have been placed on cruise ships by Landau Music rate it as the best experience of their lives in personal and professional terms. It allows them to practice with some of the best of their peers and affords opportunities for relaxing and unwinding. Moreover, there are also further possibilities for advancing your career by selling you CDs onboard – the cruise ship will take a certain portion of the sale price as a commission but Landau Music does not.
We want to make it possible for great musicians to have a fun experience. While we emphasize fun, we are also very particular about the highest standards in choosing the musicians we represent. We request that you approach us only if you have a genuine interest and serious commitment to music. While the cruise ship may sound like a lark, being an orchestra musician or a solo entertainer will be a test of your talent and capabilities.
We are eager to represent talented professionals and would love to hear from you today. You can reach us at 1-858-755-3320 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
