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

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!

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!!
