With Jam Cruise 10 set to depart Fort Lauderdale in a little under a month, cruisers got a surprise today when Phish lighting designer Chris Kuroda was officially added to the Jam Cruise 10 staff to help light the boat. Besides Kuroda’s technical duties, he’ll also participate in the LD Work Shop, titled Get Lit Up, with Umphrey’s LD Jefferson Waful on Tuesday, January 10 at 5:30PM in the theater.
In other Jam Cruise news, special guest Kyle Hollingsworth will not be making the trip. Here’s Kyle’s statement…
Jam Cruisers, due to unforeseen circumstances, I will be unable to attend Jam Cruise this year. I apologize for my absence and I’m saddened to miss one of my favorite events of the year. Have a great time on the boat and I hope to see you all again soon. ~ Kyle
Derrick Lee and Roosevelt Collier of The Lee Boys and Adam Smirnoff and Eric Coomes of Lettuce have been added as guests in lieu of Kyle. Everyone Orchestra’s Matt Butler will fill Hollingsworth’s role as the Jam Room “conductor” on the first night. Check HT later this week for tips for Jam Cruise newcomers from a number of vets.
There’s also a magazine called “The Onion”.
