About The Edgar Winter Band

By the time Edgar Winter left his hometown of Beaumont Texas in the 1960’s, he was already proficient in every aspect of music. A child prodigy, Edgar has found success in music, film and television.

Edgar’s immediate impact on the record business with his first record, “Entrance”, was followed up with two hit albums with his band White Trash, and he topped that success with The Edgar Winter Group, creating the number one hit “Frankenstein” as well as the ever-popular “Free Ride”. The album “They Only Come Out At Night” peaked at number 3 on the Billboard charts and stayed on the chart for 80 weeks; on it’s way to double platinum.

Edgar invented the keyboard body strap, an innovation that allows him the freedom to move around the stage during his high-energy multi-instrument performances. His live appearances have occurred around the world, and Edgar is known for his own scintillating shows, as well as his riveting collaborations with the likes of Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band.

Edgar’s music can be heard in no fewer than fifteen film and television projects, including “The Simpsons”, “Wayne’s World”, “Air America”,” Wag The Dog”, “Encino Man” and “My Cousin Vinny”, as well as advertising campaigns such as Miller Highlife, and most recently the “Tupac Resurrection” film, which includes his powerful song “Runnin’ (Dying To Live)”, which charted #5 on the R&B/Hip Hop Charts. Produced by Eminem, the song was part of a soundtrack album that was number one for eight weeks. His live TV appearances include David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel.

Edgar’s live shows constantly receive rave reviews. His music is always evolving and he is a master of stretching his skill and imagination to produce amazing results. He also is a prolific writer, with a volume of poetry and a collection of exciting stories in his writing repertoire.

Edgar is a musician at the top of his game, and he’s proved he can do it all.



What Passengers Think

First time on RLC cruise and it was, by far, one of the best damn times I’ve ever had in my life! Loved every band we saw, especially Sammy, Bad Company and Artimus Pyle! Had already booked for VII before we even went on this one and won’t be giving up my reservation for anything! I do agree with another reviewer that the chair reserving/holding on the deck needs to be addressed and the smoking everywhere on deck 11 was a little much. Thank you NAHA for nailing it for us true rockers!!

This was my 11th cruise overall but my First RLC! And I can simply say it’s the BEST I have been on. It was more than anything I could have imagined. Everyone was there for one purpose, and that was to ROCK OUT! I loved all the bands, I loved how everyone was just happy (tough to come across now adays). I am HOOKED. I initially didn’t think I’d be able to attend VII, (going on a Hawaiian cruise in April 2019), but I’m working it to make it happen (my suite mates already booked me so I have a room, just gotta figure out $$-but I’LL BE THERE). I met so many great people, the music is my genre of music and it’s just a great time! Looking forward to many more, and it really is for a great cause (NAHA). m/ ROCKSTAR!!!!
