I like how they have done the tribute thing the last couple years with members of bands that are already on the boat (Beatles/Floyd/Dead). AND I like DSO, but wasn't it a Grateful Dead tribute on the boat last year? Don't people end up covering Dead tunes anyway? Isn't DSO like everywhere already? Try something different and if you are going to get a tribute band on there, have it be Phix since they are retiring this year, and who doesn't love Phish? Fish is on the boat, too - t'would be epic. :idea:

Not as much as you might think. Not really at all I'd say. Hearing GD on JamCruise has been, on the whole, a surprisingly VERY rare thing.

Uh, no. Especially not in the southeast. And that's not an argument against having them. By the same token you could say isn't Galactic like everywhere already? It doesn't really pertain imo.

Having DSO on board, definitely in the context of the past 5 cruises, is something different.

Sorry to hear they're retiring. But because they're retiring isn't really a great argument to get them on board either. I really dug them the one time I got to check them out. But dismissing for a moment the totally uncomparable musical stylings of the two bands, to my ear they just didn't bring their recreation to the same level that DSO attains. If we absolutely have to make the comparison (which I think is unfair to both bands), DSO is far more deserving imo.

Not me. They were my favorite band of all time, bar none. But there are surprisingly many who fit that description.... though it boggles my mind.

More gimmicky than "epic," but yeah, I'd definitely dig the novelty of it.

If you wanna push for something a bit more Phish-y, join me in BEGGING for Mike Gordon to jump on board!

Looking back on this lineup and reflecting for a moment, it occurs to me that ONCE AGAIN JamCruise organizers have consistently listened to cruiser input on band selection.

How many times have we heard around here the names DSO and Warren Haynes for example? And bringing back JC's new favorite funkster, George Porter?!?

Thank you for listening, JamCruise.

And since I've got your ear, how bout some

NMS
TLG
ALO
Mike Gordon
Reid Genauer and AOD (no better band for the daytime)

And I'm begging here but please..... LET DSO PLAY ON THE POOL DECK ONE NIGHT! Don't let both their shows be inside. They HAVE to play pool deck, under the stars!!!!

And what the hell... bring back Z-Trip. Never forget he and Stanton gettin down on JC1.

100% in support of gordon in general (my bet is a "sit in" with toubab crewe") and DSO playing the pool deck. something will be lost in the theatre.

I decided to post this in here instead of starting my own thread.

Apparently Les is not booked for JC VI, at least not yet. I hate rumors and I hate starting rumors but I was just so damn excited about Les' possible return to the boat. Hopefully he'll still be back!

I apologize for getting anybody's hopes up.

just a quick note to say in full agreement with DSO playing outside, by the spiral light of venus.

I am so psyched to get on the boat in 6 months. Michael Franti, George Porter JR., Steve Kimock, Warren Haynes and 2,000 freaks on the open sea! My first Jamcruise after 5 years of being told by my familia Jacques and Steph that it is the best time a music junkie could ever imagine. I wish we were setting sail manana, but "all good things in all good time".

The only question is - are Jacques and Steph back on board? I hope so!

Don't get to see those fishies as often as I used to..... Only on the cruise it seems!

Jacques & Steph are always on board the cruise ship in their minds! Two of the most energetic, positive, friendly music freaks on the planet. Can't wait to meet all their Jamcruise family which will become mine.
