About Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band

Legendary drummer and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Jaimoe and his Jasssz Band play American music. They combine elements of Jazz, Blues, Rock-n-Roll, and R&B into a unique blend that captures the spirit and stirs the soul. Their repertoire ranges from new interpretations of classic tunes, as well as original songs that are classics in the making. Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band features Jaimoe – drums, Junior Mack – guitar and vocals, Dave Stoltz – bass, Bruce Katz – keyboards, and some of the finest horn players of our time, including Paul Lieberman – sax, flute, and piccalo, Kris Jensen – sax and Reggie Pittman – trumpet.

Jaimoe, man of many names, and one of the original six band members, has combined forces with fellow drummer and percussionist Butch Trucks in a million subtle, driving, playful, and energizing ways to keep the music on track and flowing.

Jaimoe himself contributes the following biographical insights: This is Jaimoe. No, I did not play at Monterey. I played with Otis Redding 4/18/66 through 9/5/66 in the band that did “Otis – Live at the Whiskey A-Go-Go”. I joined that band a week after that record was recorded. A very good friend of mine, a very good sax player and a hell of an organizer, Donald “Cadillac” Henry, was a great reason for me getting that break and a lot of others, right up to the fact of the reason I was in Macon was because Donald told me to go to Macon. Phil Walden was putting a recording studio in Macon which was Capricorn Records. Phil Walden and Otis Redding had a company called Redwal Music.



What Passengers Think

This was our first cruise as well as first RLC. What a blast! NAHA knows how to do it right! Practically non stop music from big named artists to fabulous up and coming musicians, this cruise rocks! I got hooked for Sammy but seeing some of the other artists were also highlights! And everybody we met was very cool! Maybe not for VII, but we will be back in the future!

LeslieG, great experience! LeslieG, great experience!

I cannot express how much fun this cruise is. I was skeptical at first, but since my all time favorite artist, Todd Rundgren, was added we went ahead and booked. From here on out we don’t even care who’s added to the bill, we are going. We’ve actually talked some friends into joining us next year. The best people and the bands are crazy fun! Can’t wait til next year!!

Donna, best time Donna, best time
