There were some really good acts on this cruise which is a fundraiser for poor native Americans. Try Frampton, Greg Alman, Grand Funk Railroad, America, John Kay & Steppenwolf, The Marshall Tucker Band, Randy Bachman, Uriah Heep, Foghat, The Outlaws, Rik Emmett, Kim Simmonds & Savoy Brown, The Pat Travers Band, and The Artimus Pyle Band.

Just got back last night.

I expected Frampton to kick ass... and he did. Randy Bachman was a pleasant surprise. I listed the good bands. Some were so-so... excellent bands, but just not in the same league as the ones I listed.

Randy Bachman played lots of favorites from Bachman-Turner Overdrive and the Guess Who... both of his bands.  He was a pleasant surprise.  I recommend seeing him, f'sure.




Peter Frampton hasn't lost much of his touch.  He was the highlight of the trip.




America played lots of hits.  The taller of the two (Dewey Brunnell?) has a strange voice now, almost comical at times.  A third member, Dan Peek, left the group in 1977 and died in 2011.

They are booking cabins for next year's cruise. I have gone on RLC III and IV. Although they don't have a lineup for next year's cruise, some cabin choices have already been sold out. You have to get your cabin early if you want to go.

We want to go to next year's cruise, but haven't identified how to pay for it yet.

When the lineup is released, you won't be disappointed.

I shot a bunch of video using my GoPro (no zoom, so there are no close-up shots).  I put the shots together and uploaded it to YouTube.  It isn't cleverly edited and it is just raw video, but it gives you an idea of what kind of music (and venues... 3 of them) are played and what the venues look like.
