For those of you who watched last week’s Grammy Awards, you know who the Zac Brown Band is, of course. And you saw that great duet with Leon Russell, who just recovered from brain surgery. And you already know they won Best New Artist of the year, but did you know these guys are headlining their own little party on board the Carnival Inspiration for a four day cruise from Tampa to Grand Cayman over Labor Day Weekend?
The Zac Brown Band will be joined on the cruise this year by Michael Franti and Spearhead, Blackberry Smoke, Nic Cowan, Gaelic Storm, Sonia Leigh, Levon Lowry and Oakhurst.
The Zac Brown Band are no strangers to cruising - they first sailed on The Rock Boat in 2004 after winning a battle of the bands in Birmingham, Al., which was judged by Sixthman owner Andy Levine. The band has since sailed on four Rock Boats, two Simple Man cruises, and Cayamo 2009, building a stronger and more loyal following with each appearance.
"We're excited to have another chance to spend four days at sea hanging out with our fans," said Zac Brown. "The Sixthman cruises are a great opportunity for us to give fans a taste of the full Zac Brown Band experience."
Andy Levine is thrilled to announce Sailing Southern Ground: "Zac has honed his craft, discipline, and connection with his fans, and we are harvesting a relationship from a seed that was planted five years ago. Sixthman is honored to bring a Zac Brown Band experience to life."
I took the Dave Koz Jazz Cruise last year, and a music themed cruise is a blast. There are impromptu parties, jam sessions and discussions with the musicians the whole time and you are always surrounded by like-minded people. I highly recommend a music themed cruise, and it sounds like the Zac Brown Band will offer his fans a fantastic four days at sea.
Looks like a pretty good time here!
