All Jams On Deck
A film by Robert Mugge
For many, the highlights of every Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise are the scheduled “pro jams” presented late each night on the aft Pool Deck. On the October 2010 Blues Cruise from San Diego to the Mexican Riviera, music filmmaker Robert Mugge and his crew documented those late-night jams, as well as others taking place throughout the weeklong cruise. The result is a 96-minute music documentary titled ALL JAMS ON DECK which captures exciting and unpredictable performances by such major blues artists as Tommy Castro, Elvin Bishop, Marcia Ball, Johnny and Edgar Winter, Kim Wilson, Lee Oskar, Commander Cody, Coco Montoya, Lowrider Band, Larry McCray, Rick Estrin, Jimmy Thackery, Sista Monica Parker, John Nemeth, Steve Berlin, Vasti Jackson, Leon Blue, Rev. Billy C. Wirtz, Eden Brent, Mike Schermer, Kelley Hunt, and many more. Also included are discussions of the history, techniques and etiquette of blues jamming featuring the artists themselves, as well as SiriusXM Radio’s Bluesville Program Director Bill Wax and blues and jazz historian and producer Bob Porter. The twice-yearly Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise was founded in 2001 by Roger Naber, a blues music industry visionary and charter cruise pioneer whose first Blues Cruise sailed in 1992. Robert Mugge, who has been dubbed “king of the American music documentary” by Paul Malcolm (LA Weekly), and his partner Diana Zelman previously collaborated with Naber on the 2007 film DEEP SEA BLUES. Enjoy this unique opportunity to see multiple band leaders performing together with their tremendous talents and exuberance!
