WOW! What a phun adventure. After 7 glorious years of boat riding I was forced to take last year off, and take on a long play of getting a new career up and running, relocation to Montana and in doing so creating the perfect existence. It is all paying off in groves. Starting with getting to return to the beloved Jam Cruise to start 2015 off with my favorite musical adventure and many of my favorite artists and friends.
Being apart of the Cloud 9 staff is a dream come true. One that I owe many thanks to Michael Weintrob, Annabel Lukins-Stelling, Mark Brown, Kelly Viau and Jon Sweetwood many thanks for helping me to be apart of! This year my favorites The Motet, Lettuce and Nth Power were onboard and ready throw down! I also have been falling head over heals for Snarky Puppy with every opportunity to see them. They are the most exciting music collective, and really push the boundaries of musical exploration. Such amazing talent!
I was also blown away by Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds! Man did they rip the Atrium apart on the last evening of the cruise. This is one of my favorite shots from their set. More to follow-
