About Zebra

Zebra galloped out of New Orleans in early 1975. The trio, consisting of Randy
Jackson, Felix Hanemann and Guy Gelso, concocted their moniker from a 1926
Vogue magazine cover and soon won over the South and East Coast.

In 1982 Zebra’s self-titled debut album went gold and was the fastest selling
debut album in Atlantic Records’ history thanks to the radio and MTV airplay of
“Tell Me What You Want” and “Who’s Behind the Door?”. Veteran producer
Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick) also helmed the follow-up,
“No Tellin’ Lies”. The songs range from the hard-rocking “Wait Until the
Summer’s Gone” to the Beatle-esque ballad, “Lullaby”.

With the release of their third Atlantic album “3.V”, Zebra took their career one
step farther: the album’s credits read “Produced by Randy Jackson and Zebra”.
Thus, for the very first time, the group gained complete control of its creative
output. A collection of the finest songs they have ever written, “3.V” clearly
shows Zebra’s lasting power and originality.

In all, Zebra fans enjoyed a total of five videos aired on MTV and have given
the band combined album sales of nearly 2 million worldwide.
Zebra emerged from the studio again in 2003 with “ZEBRA IV”, on Mayhem
Records. This could possibly be the best effort by Zebra to date with powerful
cuts which include “Arabian Nights”, “Why” and “Waiting To Die”.

Zebra’s live performances often last over two hours and showcase their new
material along with all the classic Zebra tunes: “Who’s Behind the Door?”, “Tell
Me What You Want”, “Wait Until the Summer’s Gone”, “Bears”, “One More
Chance” and other all-time favorites including an occasional Led Zeppelin cover.

“ZEBRA THE DVD”, released in 2008 captures the band’s energy and power on
stage. The DVD features live concert footage from both Long Island and the
House of Blues in New Orleans in addition to several interviews and bonus
features.

In 2010 Zebra was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and is
acknowledged as Louisiana’s #1 Rock and Roll band by the Louisiana Music
Commission.

On October 18, 2012 Zebra was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of
Fame.



What Passengers Think

This was my 5th RLC out of 6 and will be on the next one in 2019. It is the only way to do a cruise and one of the best ways to have an over the top rock ‘n roll experience. There are three venues with shows going on from 10 am to past 12 midnight – every day! Once you’re done for the night, the convenience of your cabin is just steps away. The RLC lineup speaks for itself. There is so much talent, legends and upcoming rockers, on the ship! The people, your fellow rockers, are all there for the same reason – rock ‘n roll! Don’t be surprised if you run into a few rock stars on the elevator or just hanging out watching a show.

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!
