Tucked into a massive line-up aboard the Norwegian Jade during Jam Cruise 17, Melvin Seals and a stellar band played an intimate, stripped down set in the Atrium.
Melvin’s band included Sunshine Becker on vocals, Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet/vocals, Steve Kimock on guitar, Dan Lebowitz on guitar, Zac Nugent on guitar/vocals, George Porter Jr. on bass and Mike Dillon on percussion.
Melvin and his crew turned the volume down and delivered a beautiful set of Jerry Garcia Band and Grateful Dead tunes on the afternoon of the 19th after the ship set sail from Progreso, Mexico.
