Ever dreamed of playing on the big stage? Are you the kid that sat in their room, wishing you could take your talent to the masses? If the answer is yes to either of these, we want to hear from you. We are Sam and Marieke, the managers of the Rover Band, a band of Rover and Ranger musicians being put together to play at Roverway 2018.
The Rover Band is a separate path, available to a hand-selected group of Roverway participants. Instead of going onto a path with your patrol, you will join an international patrol comprised of the band and us, as your Path leaders. We will spend our time rehearsing, and exploring our own musical Path, as well as performing in various places around the Netherlands. This will all be in preparation for a performance in front of over 4000 participants and IST at the opening ceremony, midweek shows, and the final closing ceremony.
So, what are we looking for?
- A good level of musical ability is expected, but no official grade or performance experience is necessary
- All instruments and vocal styles are welcome
- Basic English speaking ability preferred
- Ability to communicate before and during Roverway 2018
- Enthusiasm and energy
- Willingness to rehearse at home in the build-up to Roverway 2018
- Ability to work in a team
- A sense of humour!!
The audition process
All applicants will send an audition video to the Rover Band team. This should be no shorter than 1:30, and no longer than 5:00. You are more than welcome to play any instrument, sing any song, in any style or language. This video should be uploaded to the internet and sent to the Rover Band, using the following form: Rover Band Application. The deadline for sending your audition is 9th December, 2017. All applicants will receive an email on the 12th of December, informing them whether they have been selected or not. Selected applicants will then be invited to a conference call with the Path leaders and the other members of the band.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
Sam & Marieke
