About Earl & The Agitators

Get ready for a Classic Rock, Blues & Country high energy, good time “Sonic Gumbo”!

That’s what the “EARL & THE AGITATORS ALL STAR BAND featuring Scott Holt” is all about. A collective of veteran musicians (all named Earl by the way) from assorted Rock & Blues bands who joined together in 2015 to create some great music and have waaay too much fun!

Scott Holt began his professional musical journey at 19 when he met and was mentored by his friend BUDDY GUY and he spent the next 10 years playing guitar for the Grammy winning legend. Scott’s tenure with Buddy Guy established him as an incredible guitarist, a rich, soulful singer, performer and storyteller in his own right. And any time Buddy and Scott are in the same area, Buddy always invites his friend up to play and it is something to see!

Then in 2015, at Dark Horse Institute in Franklin, Tennessee, Scott (Earl #1) had the chance to write and record with his good friends Roger Earl (Earl #4), and Bryan Bassett (Earl #2), of the legendary rock band FOGHAT! They threw Foghat bassist Rodney O’Quinn (Earl #3) into the fray and gave birth to the “EARL & THE AGITATORS ALL STAR BAND featuring Scott Holt”.

EATA released a four song EP in 2016 and made their debut on the Rock Legends IV Cruise in January 24, 2016 where they were joined by veteran New Lords guitarist Tony Bullard (Earl #5) formerly of the JIMMIE VAN ZANT BAND & BLACK OAK ARKANSAS and the guys have been burning up stages and ringing ears together ever since! Their live show is an incredible musical smorgasbord of incredible talent and just plain fun!

A unique highlight of EATA is the array of “special guest” performers (“Earl’s”) who rotate in and out, lending their talents to this all-star band. You never know who might show up to tear up the stage with Scott, but these guys know what it takes to make an audience get up and boogie!

“EARL & THE AGITATORS ALL STAR BAND featuring Scott Holt” are currently working on their new full length album called ‘Shaken & Stirred’. It is certain to rock your socks off!!

So, put on your ‘Hi Heel Sneakers’ and come along for the ride with “EARL & THE AGITATORS”.

Just be seriously ready for a good time!

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!!

My husband and I took a chance and booked our first ever cruise in December 2011 after listening to a radio commercial about a cruise with ZZ Top, George Thorogood and John Kay playing and cruising with us (among many other great bands!). This was “Woodstock on Water”! We have been on every one since and have made many new friends who we correspond with throughout the year and look forward to seeing every year. There should be a different word than “Cruise” to describe this because it does not compare to a standard cruise by any means. Seeing- greeting-hugging-taking pictures with so many of our idols – PRICELESS!! Pam and the NAHA staff do an outstanding job and we always book as soon as each cruise booking opens – no need to wait to see who will be rockin’ us! If you like classic and southern rock and have not booked this cruise, do not wait or you’ll miss out. It sells out earlier every year. (Love to all the Dfers and FB Rock Legends Cruise Fans and FB Rock Legends Cruise Party’ers!)
