How do I see what type of jobs/contracts are available?

 

There is no way to know in advance.  Each band / musician information will be sent to several locations for future hire and only once notified by them that such group will be needed, then and only then you as a musician will be notified.

2)

What are usually cover or paid under the 3-11 month contracts

 

It varies from location to location and from hotel/restaurants.

Most will provide: Lodging/Accommodations, Travel arrangements (flights) and VISA, Meals/discounts to the location where you are placed.  Also access to the common grounds such as: GYM, POOL/Beach etc.

Is there a way that wages may be increased/or ways to earn extra money

 

Sometimes on longer contracts like the ones for about 11months, the group/band will be assessed, and if such brings lots of business into the hotel/restaurant there may be an stipulation in the contract that wages may go up a bit, but not always.

While you are on a contract, you cannot take another contract/job.  The location that has hired you may have some extra special events and pay you extra aside from the wages of the contract.

How do I need to dress or behave in  Qatar or UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi, etc)

 

Each country / region has its own laws and one must follow & comply by them.  Example: In U.A.E / Qatar and other places/countries in this region westerners can dress with their own attire and customs but not to a point that it may offend the locals or violate the laws by showing to much skin especially in females.  And in the holy month of Ramadan where one cannot drink or ea anything before sunset every day for 30 days.

How do each musician / group are paid ?

 

It all depends for each group and contract.  This can be either by cash on hand to each musician, or money will be sent to the group's organizer via Money-Gram or Western Union.  Checks are rarely used for payment.  Another possibility is for payment to be deposit via bank account.
