Blue Man Group is seeking energetic female and male drummers and percussionists for our current Blue Man production in Las Vegas. Must possess a very high level of musicianship as well as the ability to collaborate and adapt in a creative and changing environment. Solid sense of time, friendly open attitude and ability to have fun while taking direction are a must. Must be based in Las Vegas.
There are dozens of band members who perform in Blue Man Group shows across the globe. Our musicians come from all different backgrounds and many of them perform with bands and groups outside of BMG as well.
Musician casting occurs only when a position becomes available. We generally audition local musicians only to fill these spots. When auditioning for the band, you can expect a casual and friendly environment (no suits and ties – lots of jeans and t-shirts) but the expectations will be high.
On a basic level, we are looking for great timekeeping skills, excellent ears/listening skills, proficiency on your instrument, sensitivity to tone and dynamics, and the ability to play well together with other musicians. Additionally, we’re looking for intangibles like enthusiasm, an open mind, and the ability to rock. We’re not necessarily interested in how many notes you can play or how fast. We’re more interested in how you use your skills to make music. If you play with drive, authority, and a sense of musicality that brings both the listener and your fellow players to a higher level, then we welcome you to audition.
