Jam Cruise Artist Additions, Theme Night And Pre-Cruise Kickoff Party

We're getting ever so closer to Jam Cruise 12 pulling away from its new home in Miami aboard a new ship (MSC Divina) on January 4. Today, organizers have announced a pair of artist additions, a kickoff pre-party and the first theme night.

The official Jam Cruise 12 kickoff party will take place at Tobacco Road in Miami on January 3 featuring The New Mastersounds, Orgone and Suenalo. Tickets are on sale now via the Jam Cruise website. In other news, female fiddle wizard Allie Kral has been added to the lineup along with Skerik's Bandalabra. Finally, the first Jam Cruise 12 theme night has been revealed. Purple Night on Jam Cruise 12 will be a Royal Funk Affair. Here's the details via a statement, "Purple represents fantasy, mystery, and imagination, but this year purple takes on a whole new meaning as we celebrate life (and lifers). This year we wear purple, the color of Cystic Fibrosis Awareness, for one of our own - Stephanie Rath. Stephanie, a Jam Cruise lifer who has been bravely combating this disease, has recently undergone a successful double lung transplant . So break out your purple capes, high heels, sparkles, dresses and suits... Let's purple-fy Jam Cruise 12 and celebrate this life we love!"

Jam Cruise 12 sets sail from January 4 - 9 boasting a lineup that includes Les Claypool's Duo de Twang, Thievery Corporation, Bootsy Collins and the Funk Unity Band, Galactic, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe and Lotus. 95% of the ship's available cabins have already been booked.
