 Yacht music

i've never taken a cruise on some big ship with unlimited swimming, food and fifty buck drink tickets. I reckon, i'd end up puking in the pool.

what's the live music like aboard a cruise?

If i choose Alaska, is there a live band to capture the shotgun sounds of hunters shooting defenseless wild animals?
Sad, to think that cruising and hunting, is someone's ultimate package deal.

All i want is the bloody cruise band to locate a loud fast oil and ice slushing sound, something the house band on the Exxon Valdez might play.

this thread reminds me of one rhettlawrence.
come in, rhett!

All I know about cruise ship music is Sony Bono appearing as the unforgettable "Deacon Dark" in an episode of the Love Boat.

Given the target audience is 70+ I wouldn't expect much in terms of musical quality.

Ah, yes. Bono's condescening amalgam of punk and Alice Cooper:

(here, god help us all)

He redeems (*cough*) himself later in the episode with soft rock piano balladry, if I recall correctly. The Peter Criss story?

In a car crash head turn kind of way, this little cruise looks entertaining. I mean have we all not dreamed of seeing Queensryche one more time except with some dude singing that is not Geoff Tate. If you want a little laugh Google about the current state of battle between him and the band. This honestly is one heck of a bill for a weeks cruise, if you are into that sort of music. We need a TP Cruise!

Steve, "Cruise to the Edge" sails out of Tampa every Jan/Feb. You'll get your prog rock fill! I certainly wouldn't mind going.

I went on one cruise. Just a dj spinning the (s)hits.

Heck, yeah! David Thomas (on his little accordion thingie), Tom Waits, and Nick Cave could all sing sea shanties. Backed by the Pogues. Los Straitjackets could do their Joe Meek-inspired cover of that Celine Dion "Titanic" song. And of course, we'd have to have Jack Jones singing the "Love Boat" theme.

We went on a cruise ten years ago, and it featured a nightly "floor show" of different themed entertainment each night -- pop hits one night, then country, then show tunes ... you get the idea. I know they also had an onboard dance club with a DJ, but that wasn't for us.

Classic rock cruises are increasingly popular, but unless your cruise is billed as one of those, I'm guessing it'll be closer to what I described.

Oh jeez, that brought me such a big laugh! But I'm sure it'll be going through my head all day. Thanks, Kay ... I guess.

I went on a classic rock cruise.One of the bands was reo speedwagon. Every day i wore a rock n roll r ironic t shirt. One sd Stve Earle for president. Another one was Barry Manilow. The lead singer from reo sppedwagon in a very affable manner copliemented my attire.
