Jam Cruise is like no other music festival for a variety of reasons. But things like tribute sets, all star jams, charity work, and the pre and post parties that surround the cruise really top that list of reasons.
We are thrilled to announce that the pool deck will be closed out by the Master Camp at Sea All Stars, who include Victor Wooten, Butch Trucks, Col. Bruce Hampton, Luther Dickinson, Cody Dickinson, and Kofi Burbridge.

Our annual tribute set this year will be done by Karl Denson with special guests Zach Deputy and Dela of Slightly Stoopid, as they will be performing the music of soul icon Ray Charles.
