About The Immediate Family

The Immediate Family began life as a studio project, recording Danny Kortchmar’s upcoming solo CD. The CD, which will be released early 2020, features guest performances by James Taylor, Jackson Browne, David Crosby & Michael McDonald. But the core band decided to keep the vibe going and take the project on the road. Lending guitar/vocals and co-production on the album is Steve Postell, a seasoned touring/session musician who has worked with Jennifer Warnes, David Crosby and many others. In addition to Steve, the band includes four of the world’s most iconic and recorded musicians. On guitar and lead vocals, Danny Kortchmar, who has played, produced and written for James Taylor, Don Henley, Carole King, Jackson Browne and many more. The Immediate Family will be performing many of his hit songs including Jackson’s “Somebody’s Baby”, and Henley’s “Dirty Laundry”. Also on guitar and vocals is Waddy Wachtel, the consummate rock guitarist who has played with many of the same artists, including many years with Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, and the late Warren Zevon with whom he co-wrote and produced a number of hit songs. Rounding up the band is one of the most recorded and revered rhythm sections in the world – Leland Sklar on bass and Russ Kunkel on drums. Together they have played on close to 5,000 records, many of them classics in the rock n’ roll pantheon.

What Passengers Think

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!!!!

Jeni, This Cruise Was Meant for ME! Jeni, This Cruise Was Meant for ME!

2018 was our first Rock Legends Cruise and as soon as we got off the boat we booked RLC7 for 2019. The entire experience was such a good vibe. Everybody on board from passengers to artists are just having a great time. It’s not hard to do when everyone around you is happy.
