OMG :shock: ALICE RUSSELL IS THE CHICK FROM THE BAMBOOS!!! I know alllll their music well. I can't believe I spaced that.

Dionne Charles is out of England also and she sang for Baby Charles and she is affiliated to the New Mastersounds and Baby Charles through the scene. I bet the NMS could help us with getting in touch with them!

I don't know if it is financially feasible and I am sure they would have less draw to the larger public, but there are several other European artists that I would love to see invited to Jam Cruise (or any US festival for that matter).

Air, the Poets of Rhythm, James Taylor Quartet, Tryo is a wonderfully unique French band that I think a lot of people would enjoy, Massive Attack would be out of this world, ...

If we can get NMS I'd suppose that Europe is within reach!

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings!! Maybe too much energy for an atrium set, but definitely worthy for the boat.

The fact there is no PA in there and only a grand piano sort of limits the atrium sets to those that play the keys wouldn't y'all agree? So who are y'alls favorites among female keyboard/piano players on the scene. Grace Potter immediately comes to mind, as does Mary Frances from the Booty Band, who was not with them the last time they were on board:

Here's one I shot a few years ago of her sitting in with them right before she and Lee officially joined the band:



Actual video doesn't kick in around until around the 6 min mark.

One of her rocking the keytar on the first night she had it:

Obviously not Atrium material with the keytar, but was one of the few vids I could find that demonstrates her chops on the keys. Would love to see YMBFBB back on board...they have come a long long way since 2007! Since none of the above are recent and thus representative of where they are musically today here's a show I taped a few months ago:

I think that all sounds like a fabulous idea! Let's make it happen.
