Five 15-hour-plus shoot days and nearly 150 hours of tape in the can later, JamCam Chronicles has returned from Jam Cruise 5 ready to show the world what they're missing. "Jam Cruise is bar none THE most unique festival event the music scene has to offer" exclaims JamCam Director Tom Ledermann, "and we couldn't be more honored to have been given the opportunity to add it to the amazing little time capsule we've begun to build."

The Jam Cruise (Double!) DVD will be JamCam's 13th installment overall, and the 1st of its 3rd season of critically acclaimed festival focused DVDs. "We have so many loyal subscribers who've been on board since day one" says the Jammy Award nominated filmmaker "that we thought the least we could do to reward them would be to kick off Season 3 with a bang, and what better way to do just that than with a Jam Cruise two-disc set!"

From an on-the-beach interview with Karl Denson explaining the importance of cruise ship hygiene to the wildly successful "Bandmates Game" that had the whole ship in stitches, the JamCam crew covered this year's cruise from stern to bow and ship to shore. "The music was amazing" said Ledermann, "and we got tons of it... but our goal was to capture the ENTIRE Jam Cruise experience, and I think we did a formidable job."

With more than 20 participating acts to introduce for the DVD, the JamCam "Hosted by You" concept was in full swing, with everyone from JamBase staffers Andy Gadiel, SuperDee Herman and Aaron "Kayceman" Kayce to Cruise Director Annabel (Julie McCoy) Lukins and Jam Cruise solo performers Alison Lewis and Rebecca Jean-Smith getting in on the action. "We got EVERYBODY involved" Ledermann smiles, "and if we didn't use you for an intro or catch you bouncin' on the pool deck, you're welcome to submit there of your own still photos to jamcamupdates@sbcglobal.net for the "Passenger Pics" montage we'll be cutting together for inclusion on the DVD... we want EVERYONE to be part of this."

Acts slated to appear on JamCam Chronicles' Jam Cruise (Double!) DVD Season Three opener include:

Disco Biscuits
Greyboy Allstars
Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk
Umphrey's McGee
Railroad Earth
Eric Krasno (Soulive)
Tea Leaf Green

JamCam DVD's are THE single next best thing to being there. And it is AMAZING that you could experience the next best thing to being on JamCruise ( a DOUBLE JamCam DVD) for only $10. Listen, you've been nice and worked hard - you owe it to yourself to buy this DVD. Take a look at THE coolest party on earth. Can't wait for the rest of Season 3 and to have JamCam back on the boat! - Repeat Offender.

This was my first jc; and it was the most unique, uplifting, interesting, ridiculous event/anything i have ever been a part of. I will not ever miss this event for as long as they have it. i can't wait to see what that dvd is gonna look like. it'll also be nice to get to "relive" jc over and over again.

Hmmmmmm...if this is the footage that was shown on the boat (i.e. in the photo shop area and on the JC TV channel), I can't wait to see what makes the DVDs. Great shots guys! Although, you had great subject matter ;o) Thanks for the memories in advance and can't wait to check this out!

You folks are really doing a GREAT thing here. I get butterflies just thinking about getting my Jam Cam at Sea DVDs in a few months. I can't wait to relive "The Best Time of My Life!" at home on my couch with a tall cold one (or two or three).

Just finished watching some JamCam DVD tracks with Vince Herman from Jamaica, looks like a relaxed little festy they had down there. It's kind of neat to check out the atmosphere and personnage of a festival that I did not get to attend in person.

Looking forward to everything especially the Tea Leaf Green participation on the JamCruise edition (another festy I couldn't go to this time around, went on JC1 tho!)
