There is an unbelievable array of talent aboard the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise – one just needs to just look at the line ups to know that. But there are also special moments that occur nowhere else, the jams – both scheduled and unscheduled plus collaborations between artists who have just net on the cruise and decide to have at it.
There are an amazing collection of these videos available on YouTube, but I think it is cool that we can share them thru this page and maybe introduce some of you to what happens on the ship, and show why there is a hard-core band of ‘repeat offenders’ who book passage on these one of a kind experiences. There are more folks out there besides the ones featured here but I know these two cats and they do a good job of documenting the events. And yeh, they are both doctors in real life – go figure.
From Dr. Chris:
