The event will have three unique pieces. Friday evening will be a gathering of the minds; fine wines, hors-d'oeuvres, discussion and gallery. Saturday evening will be a two-part celebration featuring an exotic line-up of live music, DJs and performance art. Beginning with the sunset onboard the SS Jeremiah, we will serve complimentary hors-d'oeuvres, fine wines, and fabulous ales. The lights of San Francisco will illuminate the ship as we dawn our finest apparel. This will be an ornate affair; a waltz with the past, celebrating what the future will bring. Finally, we will shake loose our corsets and top hats into the
early morning with an after party ripe with break beats and circus freaks.

About Xingolati Groove Cruise:
October 2005, Who is Guy Grand... LLC, transformed a carnival cruise ship into a floating music festival. For three days and three nights Xingolati combined the ship's fabulous food and relaxing spa treatments with multiple concert venues showcasing live music from some of the country's most dynamic bands. The entire cruise was infused with Who is Guy Grand... theatrics including performance art, character exaggerations and circus theatrics.

Women in corsets and stiletto heels are just part of the equation. Joining us for a stylistic European hopscotch will be DEVOTCHKA. DeVotchKa's blend of gypsy instrumentation (accordion, bouzouki, and violin), mariachi horns, and flamenco guitar is perfectly suited for burlesque's vintage spectacle. With a powerful, quivering tenor and rakish leading-man speaks of the travails of a lovelorn urban castoff. He frequently paints in Southwestern shades with twangy electric guitar or adds brassy Mexicali tones on trumpet. That vivid evocation of place underlies the band's music. Deep in the stoic history of the SS Jeremiah draped in crushed velvet with DeVotchka you will feel transported.
