Louisiana’s masterful Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble set up the dance grooves on the middle deck. Lafayette, La. expatriate keyboardist Steve Kerin, and the Bayou Boys serve up New Orleans funk and R&B; Blues Award-winning saxophonist Terry Hanck and his seamless band cover everything from Fats Domino to Junior Walker. On the upper deck Portland’s BrassRoots Movement hold court with Crescent City brass band classics.
Cruise the beautiful Willamette River and hear the blues in an intimate setting on the Portland Spirit. A no-host hors d'oeuvres buffet and full bar are available on all cruises.
