“The band loves seeing that name at the top of a chart. Jamsheed's scores are clear, intelligently presented, always with the musician in mind.”
— Music Director, Celebrity Cruises
I am the music arranger for Stephen Barry, Ireland's Got Talent legendary finalist, currently on tour.
Almost every single day of the year, one of my arrangements or click tracks gets performed by a guest entertainer somewhere in the world. You only get an hour's rehearsal, so your charts need to be accurate, easy to sightread and sound great first time. Every singer has their own style so every arrangement is different. That's where a music arranger comes in.
I'm also a guest ent myself so I know the band line-up on every ship (and most of the musicians). Singers come to me for original arrangements & tracks for their show, and together we figure out what you need and how to get there. I LOVE this process and there's no job too big or too small. Everything is possible!
I've collaborated with cabaret legend Le Gateau Chocolat. La Clique, La Soiree (Olivier Award), Black (Homotopia Festival & Glyndebourne), Icons (London's Soho Theatre) sell-out appearances at The Royal Festival Hall, Adelaide Festival & Sydney Opera House.
I've been music copyist and arranger for Vicky O'Keefe since 2018. Daughter of Australian rock'n'roll legend Johnny O'Keefe, Vicky's show combines her own incredible originals with timeless 1950s hits.
I charge a fixed fee per song, for a 7-piece band and singer: £450 GBP
