LIMITED CABIN SPACE STILL AVAILABLE!

As the sail date for Jam Cruise 5 nears, final bookings are being confirmed to this year's artist lineup. The Disco Biscuits, Stanton Moore Trio featuring Will Bernard and Robert Walter, and DJ Logic have been added to the bill. Also newly confirmed to be on board: Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), JJ Grey (MOFRO), George Porter Jr. (The Meters), Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers), Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band), Oteil Burbridge (The Allman Brothers), and Eric Krasno (Soulive). In the spontaneous spirit of Jam Cruise, cruisers can look forward to plenty of surprise collaborations and rare pairings, including a special set with JJ Grey and Luther Dickinson, and with Jeff Austin and Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey's McGee).

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.

Details for the official Jam Cruise 5 pre-party are confirmed:
MOFRO and New Mastersounds
January 1, 2007
Culture Room - Fort Lauderdale, FL
Doors at 8, show at 9
Tickets for passengers go on sale September 15 at 10am ET at www.baselineticketing.com.
Tickets for general public go on sale September 20 at 10am ET at www.jamcruise.com and www.musictoday.com.

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.

How is Jerry going to make it on board since the ship departs before the last of the Costa Rica gigs takes place? I hope we don't get shorted in the Osa =(

hittin' this cruise for the 1st time this year.
i am sooooooooooo............... stoked i can't wait.
i already know they are going to have to kick me off the boat when it is over, because i know i am not going to want to go home.
i wouldn't mind knowing how much loot to bring too, even though i am bringing as much as i can get my hands on.

i need to find a good new year's eve show down that way to attend before i get on the boat. any ideas?

I wish I could go this looks ridiculous. TDB and the Umph on the same boat...if I were the passengers I would take the bands hostage and make them sail for a month. :)

Hey, cruisers! Thought you might like to know we'll be kicking off JamCam Season Three with a Jam Cruise 5 DOUBLE DVD special edition and as always will be looking for enthusiastic volunteers to "host" the show, so if you're interested be on the lookout for the JamCam crew and speak up! By the way, anybody who pre-orders the Jam Cruise DVD and/or a Season Three subscription between December 1st and 15th will get a FREE 2005 Jerry Bash DVD (w/Bob Weir & RatDog, The Codetalkers w/Jimmy Herring, Ekoostik Hookah, etc.) in plenty of time to stuff the stocking! See y'all on the high seas!!!

Get ready to eat absolute crap! I had better food in prison than I did on the last Jamcruise. That MSC Cruiseline is about as low-budget as it gets. Its like a floating Motel 6. The line-up is weak this year. No Les? He must have gotten sick of the shitty food too. Skerik wrote a song about it. Worst pizza ever! Have fun suckas.
