About Steve Rodgers

Steve Rodgers, singer songwriter, has been busy this year recording his much requested second LP. His songs reflect his passion for life’s depth, mystery and wonder, recorded with his new band of like-minded musicians. Critics compare his music to a mix of Jack Johnson, Paolo Nutini and Cat Stevens. Steve grew up surrounded by great music and at a young age he used to listen to LP’s from his father’s eclectic record collection, mostly blues records, The Beatles and his favorite, Led Zeppelin.

At 14 he began to write his own songs on guitar and piano. He started a band with his friends at 17, ‘Lost Sons of Davros’. From the ‘Lost Sons’ came ‘Boa’ with a few new members including Steve’s sister Jasmine – they created two great albums – their first single ‘Duvet’ was the title track to the Japanese multi award- winning animation series Manga ‘Lain – Serial Xperiments’. They toured the States, the UK and after much partying, Steve decided to follow his own path. Along the way he saw how amazing and deep life really was and wanted to reflect that in his songs. In the past few years, he has ‘special guested’ at Wembley for Bad Company, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, and the Robert Randolph Band. His touring has included supporting Bad Company in the UK and Japan and has headlined dates in the UK and Canada. During 2013 Steve supported The Deborah Bonham Band, T’Pau and Midge Ure throughout their respective tours in the UK and Europe. In 2014 Steve so far will be supporting the Chris Spedding Band on their tour, playing the UK Festival scene as well as touring and releasing his new album.

Queen’s Roger Taylor: ‘Great singing and songwriting – I’m impressed’.



What Passengers Think

The Music, The Ship, The People are ALL Great! What an amazing experience. My wife and I had a GREAT time!

Rick Booth, Awesome! Rick Booth, Awesome!

This was our first RLC, we REALLY wanted to do this one because of Uriah Heep and The Circle. The fact that Steppenwolf, Blue Oyster Cult, and Bad Company were on it also just sweetened the pot. It was our first time seeing Todd Rundgren, Gary Hoey, Quiet Riot, Artimus Pyle and Elvin Bishop, who were all great! We caught parts of some of the other bands and unfortunately some not at all. We didn’t leave the ship at all because there just too much GREAT music!
The artist we met were all very nice. Loved the Meet and Greets. And now we have new bands to follow.
My only complaints ( and they wouldn’t stop my husband and I from returning) were the saving of the chairs with towels, and the staff in the buffet room seemed ill equipped to handle the crowds, which were predictable. Also, I thought the buffet room should have had longer daytime hours, that would have helped with tables not available. But we weren’t there for the food or the destination. We were there for the non stop music. Gary Hoey and the All Star Jam was the best surprise, we didn’t move for 3 hours, didn’t want to miss a second of that great show. Gary was a terrific host.
We will be back! Oh and fun swag too!
