About Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band

Legendary drummer and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Jaimoe and his Jasssz Band play American music. They combine elements of Jazz, Blues, Rock-n-Roll, and R&B into a unique blend that captures the spirit and stirs the soul. Their repertoire ranges from new interpretations of classic tunes, as well as original songs that are classics in the making. Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band features Jaimoe – drums, Junior Mack – guitar and vocals, Dave Stoltz – bass, Bruce Katz – keyboards, and some of the finest horn players of our time, including Paul Lieberman – sax, flute, and piccalo, Kris Jensen – sax and Reggie Pittman – trumpet.

Jaimoe, man of many names, and one of the original six band members, has combined forces with fellow drummer and percussionist Butch Trucks in a million subtle, driving, playful, and energizing ways to keep the music on track and flowing.

Jaimoe himself contributes the following biographical insights: This is Jaimoe. No, I did not play at Monterey. I played with Otis Redding 4/18/66 through 9/5/66 in the band that did “Otis – Live at the Whiskey A-Go-Go”. I joined that band a week after that record was recorded. A very good friend of mine, a very good sax player and a hell of an organizer, Donald “Cadillac” Henry, was a great reason for me getting that break and a lot of others, right up to the fact of the reason I was in Macon was because Donald told me to go to Macon. Phil Walden was putting a recording studio in Macon which was Capricorn Records. Phil Walden and Otis Redding had a company called Redwal Music.

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!

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!!
