It gives me profound pleasure to announce that the iconic funk group (and my favorite band of ALL TIME) Tower of Power will be joining us as our very special in-port guests!! This is HUGE! They’re celebrating their 50th Anniversary of making music this year, and we couldn’t be happier (nor more proud) to host them, especially on such a special anniversary year.
The incredible alto sax star Gerald Albright is excited to be making a return visit to our cruise, as well as tenor saxman Richard Elliot, trumpeter Rick Braun and acoustic guitarist Peter White! The wonderful singer Maysa will be joining us for the first time, as well as gospel legend (and one of the greatest singers of all time) BeBe Winans! Dutch saxophonist and singer Candy Dulfer is thrilled to be getting in on all the Aussie fun, as are keyboardist (and the man who gave me my start), Jeff Lorber, saxophonist Everette Harp and guitarist Paul Jackson Jr.!
And the talent doesn’t stop there. You’ll be saying “G’Day” to artists like multi-instrumentalist Vincent Ingala, trombonist/singer Aubrey Logan, saxophonist Marcus Anderson doing his thing once again all over the ship…plus amazing singers Javier Colon and Chris Walker. Plus, the hilarious comedian Tommy Davidson will be returning to keep the laughs aplenty on our journey.
