Yacht Rock on Jam Cruise

The latest round of Jam Cruise 7 additions are among the traveling

festival’s most intriguing. For the first time ever, ALO’s Dan
Lebowitz, the New Deal’s Jamie Shields and Ryan Stasik, Kris Myers and
Joel Cummins of Umphrey’s McGee will play a set of ‘Yacht Rock’ covers

together (a post on Jam Cruise’s homepage reads: ‘From ’76 – ’84, FM
radio was dominated by smooth music. With a fleet of #1 hits, the
music known as yacht rock drove women crazy. The pandemonium prompted
J.D. Ryznar to create the famed internet hit series known as Yacht
Rock. What you are about to witness is the musical reincarnation of
this momentous phenomenon’). In addition, current Phil Lesh
collaborator Jackie Greene will act as one of the cruise’s ‘guest
artists,’ while Cyro Baptista will both host a percussion workshop and
sit in with a number of already confirmed performers. DJ Rootz and
STS9’s David Murphy will also play a set of music together in Jam
Cruise’s late night disco. At present, there are less then 100
cabins left on Jam Cruise.
