The Lineup for Smooth Jazz Cruise ’16 Is Set with Norman Brown, Chanté Moore, Tom Braxton and Wycliffe Gordon added to the star-studded list of performers
The Smooth Jazz Cruise 2016 just got a bit more exciting with the recent addition of four performers to the already amazing lineup, including Grammy Award winner Norman Brown.
Without a doubt, the most nail-biting element of our cruise programs is the selection of the lineup. We all have our favorites, and we all have our wish list. As we establish our lineups, our prevailing goal is to present the very best talent in the world. Though it would be very easy to constantly make the lineup new and different, that would not necessarily make it better. We also want to present Artists who appreciate the promises that our programs make to our Guests. We seek those Artists who see the cruise as a full experience for our Guests, one that includes not only performances, but also interacting with our Guests and making sure that the Guest experience is No. 1.
To complete the lineup for The Smooth Jazz Cruise ’16.1 and ’16.2, we have added Grammy winner Norman Brown, and Chanté Moore, Tom Braxton and Wycliffe Gordon to the star-studded list of performers, which includes George Benson, Marcus Miller, David Sanborn, Boney James, Brian Culbertson, Candy Dulfer, Richard Elliot, Brian Simpson, Eric Marienthal, Grace Kelly and Patches Stewart. Cruise Host Dane Butcher, super band DW3and comic Alonzo Bodden round out the headliners.
We are also thrilled to announce that every member of each of our three super bands will be returning. The members of those bands are stars in their own right, as well as being amazing support for the Artists.
Securing the beautiful and talented Chanté Moore is a huge plus for the cruise. Wycliffe Gordon is internationally recognized as the No. 1 jazz trombonist in the world. His Louis Armstrong shows are legendary, and he has led the Gospel Hour for The Jazz Cruise (our straight ahead jazz cruise) for more than a decade.
Our programming team is already working on special events and pairings for the cruise. We promise another off the hook cruise!
