For seafaring jam fans, the start of a New Year always signals one great party: Jam Cruise. Packed with dozens of artists and thousands of enthusiastic fans, the MSC Divina plays host to a number of renowned musicians and performances throughout five full days of cruising.

Night one was no exception, as Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Dumpstaphunk, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Soulive, ALO, The Werks, Twiddle, The Infamous Stringdusters, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, a solo performance from Nigel Hall, and a Jam Room throwdown hosted by Eddie Roberts of New Mastersounds.
