About Down North

Down North consists of Lead Vocalist/Dancer Anthony “Renegade” Briscoe, whose North Carolina breeding makes fans swoon and has no equal in the Pacific NW. Raised on Michael Jackson and Sam Cooke, Anthony combines a style and emotional impact reminiscent of Prince in his vocal expressions, proudly stealing the spotlight with his ballet-trained dancing.

Bassist Brandon Storms displays versatility, blending Slap/Pop bass lines with deep synth, and pitch bent solos that parallel guitar leads. Drummer Conrad Real glues together a foundation through the impeccable groove and powerful chops, his finesse, intensity, and strength evocative of Chris Coleman or John Blackwell. Psychedelic-Jazz Guitarist Nick Quiller dominates the fretboard with limitless imagination, shredding into another dimension, exploring the soundscape from high to low.



What Passengers Think

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
