The Bear Creek All-Stars. They're all on the boat and George is on bass.

The Mystery band is playing on the Island. This is not the kind of place someone is going to fly into just one show. There is nothing on this island and nobody is going to stay there. Count on this band being artist who are all on the boat. Unless they have a mystery artist they are not telling us about we should work with what we have.

Then again. They have it billed as a top 3 on the lineup. That makes it seem big.

That being said, what bands don't work without more players?

The Word - I could see them doing it without Chris but not without John.
The Allman Brothers - Too many players missing. Greg, Derek, Warren..... Also they would cost 100 of thousands to book.
Phish - We only have one and they cost way too much.
DB - missing 2 of them, correct?
Meter Men - 3 missing?
The Meters or Funky Meters - Even if you sub in Ivan and Ian we are still short a drummer.
7 Walkers - We only have one?
"Warren Haynes Band. You've got Ron Johnson, Nigel and Alecia already on board. Just need a drummer." And Warren!
Thievery Corporation with the full live band - I don't know who all is in the band, but I think it's a big band. A lot of people not on the boat.
Derek Trucks Band - All we have is Kofi
Mule - we have none of them
M4 is already booked on the boat and the show is on the island not Falmouth
The Bear Creek All-Stars - We don't have them all and I would have heard something about it.
ARU - No Jimmy or Jeff.

Please correct me on any of the above if I am wrong.

The band that can be made and is standing more then any other is Fantastic 4. They have been asked for, George is in the band, and I would say it would be a headliner. I agree with this guess.

George is a safe bet anywhat you look at it. Do we have all the members of any of his other bands?

Don't they make additions to the line up mid-summer? I've only been on the last two cruises, but I'm pretty sure I remember bands/artists being added later on down the line. What if the additional members of the special mystery band (besides George Porter, Jr.) are part of the forthcoming addition announcement and aren't on the publicized list yet? I can't help but think that with the way they're setting it up, and listing it third, it'll be something epic.

Isn't Ron Holloway the sax player for the Warren Haynes Band? He's another missing piece from that.

Everyone from Soulive is on but they don't have a scheduled set. At Bear Creek a few years ago, weren't they a special unannounced band? I like Soulive and all but I'm hoping for something bigger.

The lineup for the All-Stars a few days ago, at least on the bill was:

Ivan Neville
Ian Neville
George Porter Jr.
Nikki Glaspie
Eric Krasno
Alecia Chakour
The Shady Horns.


The year before that during Jazzfest it was:

Eddie Roberts
George Porter Jr
Nigel Hall
Eric Krasno
Robert Walters
Neal Evans
Alan Evans
Alecia Chakour
Terence Higgins
Ivan Neville
Nikki Glaspie
Will Bernard

We have everyone of these people with the exception of Higgins, if I'm not mistaken. Ivan, Ian and Nikki are only playing one set on the boat with Dumstaphunk. Anyway, just a thought. Would be pretty incredible.

Sorry August, not sure why it quoted you and not Bob.

ride_em_high, they do make additions, but they have already announced this show. You would think they already have the band booked.

jiggaj, Soulive could happen, but I would not consider them a top 3 band.

OliveSS, this year the London Souls are part of the lineup. Also, there is not real connection to BC and JamCruise. Yes, the BC guys go on JC, but none of the people that run JC have ever been to BC that I know of. They only share some production staff. What I'm saying is you won't find the BC All-Stars as part of JC.

Fab 4 is still my best guess.

Lets not exclude the possibillity that a band will play the first two nights, get off in Jamacia and a new band would board.
It is a beach party after all, and the Wailers are on the boat. Maybe Toots or Jimmy Cliff would play with the Wailers.
Lets just hope it is not a band you would rather see late night on the pool deck.

I've seen Fantastic 4 with George, but the original line-up (and the one that played JF this year) consists of Eric Krasno, Robert Walter, Adam Deitch and Cochemea Gastelum. So no George in that band, though all 4 would be on board (assuming Cheme is playing with 20th Congress).

BTW: IS Thievery only going to do a DJ set or are they booked with their live band? Sorry to thread jack, but Bob's comment is the first I've seen that indicates there is no band, in which case it would be a bogus booking in my opinion.

I'd vote for Page and the Meter Men and they are surely big enough to be announced as a head liner.

7 Walkers would also work, but hopefully they get their real lineup back. I've seen them bill "7 walkers" without george and it annoys me
