Do you book entertainment for a cruise line or are you looking for great acts for your theme cruise?  Ian offers an ideal solution for a Caribbean cruise. 


Ian Dobson's Caribbean Escape is a highly entertaining and educational show.

It's fun and accessibly while simultaneously offering cultural background that directly enhances the cruise experience of Caribbean cruise passengers.  Click here to learn more about the show.


Ian also has a great deal of experience as a sideman on percussion, vocals, drum set, and steel pan.  He has served as percussionist/pan player, drum set player, and bandleader in cruise ship show bands and would consider a hybrid position that involved performing with the show band along with performing his own show and/or workshops.

What's more, Ian is a true "edutainer" and offers passenger workshops that further compliment his show and the Caribbean cruise experience.


Passenger workshops can include:

Steel drum lessons


Caribbean dance

Lecture/demonstrations on Caribbean music and dance

Caribbean drumming/percussion

Think of this as a cross between the show Stomp and the junk-collection ship building contests on Holland America Line. Using recycled instruments like the steel drum as the example, Ian leads passengers to use their creativity and make music out of junk/recyclables collected from around the ship. Click here for more information on this workshop.

Finally, this site offers a web-based study guide and highly-interactive web site for on-line learning before and after the cruise
