Last night at the Headcount 10th Anniversary Ratdog Brooklyn Bowl extravaganza, a conversation started brewing among some Jamcruise veterans about our beautiful new MSC cruise ship that Jamcruise was held on this year, and will again be on board next year.
I wanted to open this discussion up to the whole Jamcruise forum family and see if we could all brainstorm together to help give Cloud 9 some ideas on how we can make better use of the larger ship. There are so many more little spots and nooks that could better utilized for more places for magic to happen.
- The Jazz Club - The repeat offender party was here, as well as a few other events like Stanley Jordan solo performance, but most of the time it was empty and unused, could we do more in this space ?
- The restaurant that looks out over the back deck - I don't know if this room was used for dinner at all but what a view that room has, it would be great to take over that room as a music room if we are not using it for meals.
- The Jamroom - Here I have a request for folks involved with the Masters Camp at Sea. The only thing that I felt was missing from the Masters Camp at Sea program was a chance for participants to apply what they just learned. We all did get a chance to jam with Victor Wooten, Butch Trucks, Col Bruce, Kofi, and the Dickinson Brothers, but I would have liked more time to just open jam with the other students in the program, but when we finished classes each day, the room had to be cleaned up to setup the room for the disco, so I'd love an alternate place for Masters Camp at Sea folks to be able to jam with each other and why not open up the jamroom for that purpose since it was mostly unused during the daytime hours.
These are just a few ideas to start with, but lets hear your thoughts and your ideas...
