I think a big part of this whole thing is expectations. Early days, there were little to none because we didn't have previous experiences to chase after.

Let go of the expectations and then maybe lets see what happens.

Hmm, without expectations there would be no disappointments just like without gambling there would be no losers. I see your logic. At the same point if I didn't have expectations why would I bother spending half a fortune on JC in the first place? On the matter of electronics in the jam room I'm not sure what to expect, so in my case it was probably more an instant of curiosity gaining a victory over wisdom. Or something like that...

Electronica? Isn't that the music of yesteryear? Shouldn't you guys be talking about Dub Step?

I think the JamRoom is fine the way it is. If you want to mix in some electronica, shouldn't it be in the disco where all the people that want to hear it are already dancing? What a nightmare for many of the people on this boat. The disco with DJ's and the JamRoom full of electronica/dub step. Next you guys will want to f up the accustic jams all over the boat by trying to sit in with your laptops.

So sad.

Man for hippies you guys sometimes have really closed minds.i don't think it works in the jamroom but what would be better would be another room where some electronic improvisation would be welcomed.Most hardcore electronic music fans hate dubstep Bob,they think it ruined the scene and it's for 15 year olds.It's here to stay though and i do like some dubstep but most of the time it's nonsense.Big gigantic does some nice dubstep that's not too aggressive.

Where's Shack with his normal rant about electronic music?

Sometimes i just want to dance with some sexy ladies and electronic shows are the place to be if you want to meet some girls.

Sharon - I love that clip. I am using it (hopefully) inspire Sophia to work hard at her violin lessons. Love it!

As to the jamming of electronic musicians, I am so for it. The Sonic Bloom Orchestra was along those same lines, maybe more like an everything orchestra with electonic components, and it was the best thing I have seen for quite some time, and the best dance party I have been to for even longer. I still get chills thinking of it.

dubstep makes electronic music look like an asshole. we are not talking about pushing buttons. electronic music is soo much better than you give it credit...

example; bonobo live band from bear creek... not everything you hear in the commercials on tv is what we are talking about... its sad that electronic music gets stuck into one lump some as a genre. there are literally more subgenres of electronic styles thane regular i am willing to bet.


goosebumps... this is a cd that was originally written as a push of a " button" on a laptop
long haired freak... you got it right...



and certainly something like this on the deck of the boat...ooooooooooooo



Its not like we want to change the jamroom... its 5 nights of basically the same style, I could appreciate a change in there for one night... whats the worst that could happen... its actually good and they continue it every now and then if the right people get together. I don't want to turn it into some big candi rave in there. I just want to see what the other half can do given the opportunity to show what they do too

:lol: dude! I've been saying this since my first cruise, except I've always been more of an acoustic/folk/bluegrass fan. "Someone should let the acoustic musicians in the jam room for a night, melt your face in a high energy bluegrass hoedown jam!" But instead, acoustic jams just happen in other areas of the ship, unofficially. Like what has now become "The Spot" latenight when the jam room and disco are going. I say if you want this so bad, and there are enough others that want it to happen (including, especially, the musicians!) just get some of those artists to find a spot on the ship (there are many), set up, and play. I doubt anyone is going to stop you :) People will hear, and either stay or leave. If enough people stay, and talk about it, and LOVE it, Cloud9 will hear about it eventually and possibly make it official/their own idea :lol: ;)

Why does the Jamroom have to sacrifice a night? Why can't this happen in the disco?
