Jammy jams jammin’ on the Jamopen Seas jam jam jammy jam jam…
The good folks over at Cloud 9 Adventures have put the finishing touches on the lineup for Jam Cruise 6 (the 2008 version). I’m not necessarily floored by this year’s artist selection but that really shouldn’t stop anyone else from forming their own opinion.
Michael Franti & Spearhead
funky METERS (featuring Art Neville, George Porter, Russell Batiste & Ian Neville)
Yonder Mountain String Band
Dark Star Orchestra
Toots & the Maytals
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
Everyone Orchestra (featuring Jon Fishman, Steve Kimock & Jeff Coffin)
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
and many others still to be announced.
Jam Cruise also has a brand-new podcast that’s hosted by none other than my employer and everyone’s favorite feed management service, FeedBurner. It still amazes me when those world’s collide so nicely.
This festival will be a fan-favorite for years to come, especially if they continue to keep it intimate and consistent. Let us fans set our vacation schedules to it — and we’ll forever be shelling out our hard-earned paychecks in search of the “Ultimate Music Festival Experience” (patent-pending).
