Jam Cruise has revealed its schedule of onboard entertainment. Trombone Shorty and New Orleans Ave. will open the multi-day event with a poolside set as part of Jam Cruise’s annual Sail Away Party, while Zappa Plays Zappa takes the honor of playing after the event’s Award Show. Along with the schedule, the festival has confirmed some additional entertainment: STS9 bassist David Murphy will offer a bonus DJ set, the Everyone Orchestra will play a previously unannounced gig for passengers who offset their carbon footprint on the trip and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe will play a bonus “Sexual Chocolate” show.
According to Jam Cruise’s promoters, “Sexual Chocolate started in 1988. Our beloved Karl Denson joined forces with Eddie Murphy as they performed during the legendary movie Coming to America. The band Sexual Chocolate was born. Years later, Karl couldn’t let such a good thing go down in history never to arise again. Therefore, KDTU delicately and professionally kept the dream alive with TWO renditions over the years, Sexual and Trexual Chocolate.” In addition, the Monday of Jam Cruise has been dubbed Superheroes and Villains night and the Thursday of the traveling party will be Funk ‘N Formal Night. Jam Cruise will depart Ft. Lauderdale, FL on January 3 and return early in the morning of January 8.
