These musicians join the already stellar lineup of bands: The Derek Trucks Band, Umphrey's McGee, The Greyboy Allstars, Galactic, Burning Spear, Garage a Benevento, Zero (featuring Steve Kimock, Donna Godchaux, Jerry Joseph, Greg Anton, Liam Hanraham, Martin Fierro, John Morgan Kimock, and Melvin Seals), Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Railroad Earth, Deep Banana Blackout, Perpetual Groove, Tea Leaf Green, Los Amigos Invisibles, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, ALO, Hot Buttered Rum, New Mastersounds, Yonrico Scott Band, Scrapomatic, DJ Logic, DJ Le Spam, DJ Afro, and the lucky Sonicbids contest winners.
It's not too late to turn in submissions for the Sonicbids contest. In their search to keep Jam Cruise loaded with hot new musical acts, Jam Cruise and Sonicbids have invited up-and-coming artists to submit their music for booking consideration. Six cabin slots have been reserved for contest artists, meaning the winners can be a full band up to six members or a band of four and a duo, or any other combination of six. Bands can enter now through November 7, 2006 at www.sonicbids.com/jamcruise. Jam Cruise judges will review applicants and narrow the pool down to a small number of finalists. The final voting will be open to the Jam Cruise passengers, on a date to be determined. Stay tuned for more details.
In other line up news:
Michael Franti, Drive-By Truckers and Bassnectar are not on board anymore. But don't forget, The Disco Biscuits will perform two shows on board and the post cruise show in Ft. Lauderdale to help fill the void.

For its fifth adventure, Jam Cruise has outdone itself with a superior lineup and luxurious ship, the MSC Opera. The boat will leave port from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on January 2, 2007, floating for five days and five nights with stops in the Turks and Caicos Islands and a special private island, Cayo Levantado in the Dominican Republic.
Since its first journey in 2003, Jam Cruise has revolutionized the music festival experience by blending the community, spontaneity and good times of a music festival with the convenience, luxury, and adventure of cruise travel. The MSC Opera first sailed in 2004 and features swimming pool and whirlpool, a gym and sauna, mini-golf course, internet café, casino and much more. The ship also boasts accommodations for more than 2000 passengers, offering fewer suites but more balconies and ocean views than last year.
Limited cabin space (doubles, triples, and quads) is still available but going fast so book your spot on Jam Cruise before it sells out. Visit www.jamcruise.com for cabin prices and other details including terms and conditions and cabin reservation instructions.
Jam Cruise is presented by Cloud 9 Adventures: a partnership between Mark Brown, Josh Moore & Roger Naber.
