Festival: February 26 - March 2: Live Loud Festival at Sea


Live Loud Festival at Sea
February 26 - March 2
Sailing from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay & Freeport, Bahamas

Other Acts: Saints of Valory, Ken and Drew of Sister Hazel, Yacht Rock Revue with Robbie DuPree and PLAYER (including original Ridge from Bold and the Beautiful!!! Not that I'm excited about that or anything), DJ Soulman, Chuck Cannon, Kristy Lee, Brian Collins, the Shadowboxers, Dugas, Scott Munns, Trailer Park Ninjas, Hey Monea! and Howl at the Moon

Festival, Cruise and List Preview:
Kris, his band, his fans and many other artists will be boarding the Norweigian Pearl on a musical cruise from Miami to the Bahamas. The list includes a few lucky cruisers found on Twitter and Facebook, plus a few regulars and the other acts. They may not be able to tweet while at sea. As we did last year for the Sophia's Heart Cruise, I'll use this post to update as we go along. The festival's website has a ton of information if you want to see what you're missing.
