Everyone Sits in with Everyone Aboard Xingolati

A number of high profile collaborations occurred during the final hours of Xingolati. During Slightly Stoopid’s set, Fishbone’s Angelo Moore joined the group onstage, later stopping by to add some flair to G. Love’s performance. DJ Logic and Slight Stoopid’s Miles Doughty also enhanced the Philadelphonic star’s show. Particle, who have spent the fall performing California covers, also invited one of the state’s most famous alt-rock musicians, Jane’s Addiction drummer Steve Perkins, on stage for the final show of its current outing. Perkins, who arrived onstage with Willie Waldman, is no stranger to Particle’s CaliLicious sound, having recruited guitarist Charlie Hitchcock for an incarnation of his revolving Banyan. A fitting finale, each of the above mentioned entertainers, as well as a number of other passengers, joined Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra during its final set. In addition to the cruise’s core Everyone Orchestra lineup of Joe Craven, Vince Herman, Rob Wasserman, Jamie Janover and Jamie Masefield, guests included John Medeski, P-Funk’s Kim Manning, former Pink Floyd backing vocalist Durga McBroom, DJ Logic, That One Guy, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe’s Brian Jordan, Perpetual Groove’s Brock Butler, Delta Nove’s Rob Covacevic & John Harrington, Rana’s Scott Metzger and a colorful assortment of half-naked Indra Yoga hoola hoopers and baton twirlers. At the end of the performance, Butler instructed the band and the audience alike to parade into the 6-story round atrium. Led by Herman, with crowds on each level, he conducted the crowd and musicians with cue cards from the grand piano on the bottom level. According to reporter Jeff Miller ‘The stage was littered with people jamming and waiting to jam.’
