This week I will be playing the largest southern rock and blues festival in history, the Rock Legends Cruise, December 1 – 5 between Fort Lauderdale, Florida and The Bahamas with my band Crossfyre.  It stands to mention that we are the ONLY band out of Europe on that float and gig, which speaks volumes.

The Liberty of the Seas from Royal Caribbean is one of the biggest, fastest and most luxurious passenger vessels in service today, served by a crew of 1300 on 18 decks. With a gross tonnage of 160,000, it can truly be said that the rock-themed benefit voyage will be a “heavy” experience for both bands and fans. The ship, almost as long as four football fields, cruises at 21.6 knots, is scheduled for port stops in the Bahamas that include Coco Cay and Nassau.

The main attraction of the cruise is, of course, multiple performances by the Rock Legends bands aboard, in four different on-board venues. The ship also features on-board surfing thanks to its FlowRider wave generator, an ice skating rink, a boxing ring, a full-sized volleyball/basketball court, catelevered whirlpools and range of gourmet restaurants.  The ship offers no fewer than four performance venues for Rock Legends Cruise bands: The Deck, The Platinum Theater, Studio B and The Sphinx.

The bands aboard this huge festival cruise read: ZZ Top, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, John Kay and Steppenwolf, The Marshall Tucker Band, Dickey Betts & Great Southern, Foghat, Molly Hatchet, Johnny Winter, The Edgar Winter Band, The Outlaws, Artimus Pyle, Blackfoot, Pat Travers, Devon Allman’s Honeytribe, SwampDaWamp, The Chris Hicks Band, Preacher Stone, Ryan Balthrop, Whiskey Myers, and us – Crossfyre.

I would call this nothing short of LEGENDARY!
