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 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.

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!!
