Howdy TWoLers! Katie here, just got an update from Steve and Noob Laura who are currently pulling away from Jamaica on Jam Cruise. Steve sent along a ton of pictures and a few quick impressions of the music to whet our appetites before he can give his full report next week.
Seems like boat life is pretty sweet. A room at the back of the boat with a balcony is a win. Food situation is acceptable, better than anticipated.
Night 1 featured Break Science, Umphrey's, Heavy Pets and Lettuce.
On Day 2 there were a variety of panels and plenty of time for the gang to play with moogs and theramins (amazing!). Zach Deputy played with members of Toubab Krewe and Railroad Earth, but Galactic and EOTO apparently owned Night 2, which also featured a zebra theme.
Day 3 the boat hit Haiti. Musical highlights included the Omega Moos, Ozomatli with Karl Denson, Soulive, Col. Bruce Hampton holding it down in the Jam Room, and Trombone Shorty.
That's all for now kids but there's plenty more Jam Cruise to come. We'll keep you posted with any more updates in case you weren't all jealous enough already.
