One of the reasons, if not THE reason to go on Jam Cruise is for the scheduled (and those that are not) collaborations. One of the scheduled, must-see line-ups was The Cleaners—an all-star band including Marcus King, Eric Krasno, Duane Trucks, Deshawn Alexander and Kevin Scott.
The Cleaners got the party started over at the Spinnaker Lounge aboard the Norwegian Jade on the evening of the 16th. Their short, but rip-roaring set included Jimi Hendrix, Grateful Dead, Sly and the Family Stone, The Band and Funkadelic covers among others.
While The Cleaners was on the schedule, a surprise sit in from Brandon “Taz” Niederauer was not. Taz sat in on the last song for a fiery “Them Changes.”
