Greetings, CanHeads!

Hey crew,

How are things? In Ontario, this has been a perfect January... back to the super dry cold temperatures we've been missing these last 5 years. It's invigourating and really fun to have lots of snow to play in. Been a great year for weather all around, I'd say.

Well, I gotta tell ya that the JamCruise is about the funnest time you might ever wanna have. I've never left our beautiful winter before, but I adapted to the southern sun pretty quick. And shiplife is fine when it's full of costumed, dancing friendly folk. You'd be amazed at how much New Orleans funk is on a "Jam" Cruise. And Bobby, Mickey and Billy were a blast. Bob was sounding pretty good, especially sitting in with Karl Denson's Tiny Universe (with Fred Wesley!) and the Hendrix Tribute (Watchtower). Rhythm Devils delivered some strong sets and the Canadian contingent danced hard on that last night. Mickey's Rhythms of the Universe presentation was interesting, explaining the space sounds we heard on Dead Spring Tour '09, and Billy was having the time of his life chumming with his buddy George and drinking it all in, literally. =)

You should definitely consider getting "on the boat" as they say, if you want to not only brush with the stars, but eat, drink and hang with them too. The boat seems big but it's relatively small when you're rooming next to your heroes and chatting in line in the cafeteria. Getting to meet the JB horns was a huge high for me, and standing right next to Billy in the hallway I could hardly move from my spot. So there's your first JC9 report. Back to you, Playin... Poncho... Chris...

Merry X-Mas and Happy Holidays,

Hi all,
Hope everyone is doing well. Kirsten, your JamCruise sounds fun, though I'm certain is out of my price range at this point (still transitioning into teaching....). I am hoping to get in an interesting show or two next spring/summer. Hope we can have another BIG jam session at one of these events!
