Calling All Shakedown Fleet! Get ready to shake the cobwebs out of your peg-legs for the 12th Annual Ship of Fools cruisel. Groove in style on the mighty Jewel as it sails through New York Harbor on a 3-hour journey. Enjoy spectacular views of the city, a cash bar, and music from Grateful Dead tribute band Wigjam. Proceeds from this cruise will go to support the Morning Dew radio show heard every Saturday night on WBAI 99.5 FM New York City.
The premiere Grateful Dead experience in the Northeast, Wigjam is a group of incredibly talented musicians with great ears and great stage presence! The Wigjam boys have been jamming together for years, developing a cohesive and invigorating improvisational style that captivates and stimulates their audience. Perhaps the greatest testament to the Wigjam experience: Even those who aren't fans of The Grateful Dead have a rollicking good time at their shows. There are many Dead tribute acts in the area, but Wigjam sets the precedent with fierce passion, eclectic nuance and a sense of rock and roll history.
Known for their extreme passion, eclectic nature, and sharp sense of rock-and-roll history, Wigjam is a unique jam band that has been performing throughout the tri-state area for over a decade. Wigjam has an energetic style steeped in roots rock, jazz and blues that combines originality, tightness and highly accomplished musicianship to keep their fans coming back for more.
