It appears they are rotating the talent on the EPIC every 4 months. That's great news, as it will always be "fresh" then!

The bad news? I still have to wait 3 more changes to I get to cruise the EPIC!

Darn, I was really looking forward to hearing Slam Allen and Co, so hope the new band is equally entertaining. On the plus side, assuming you don't sail Epic more than once every 4 months, you should see different entertainers each time.

Thank you so much for the info! After hearing all the rave reviews about Slam Allen I was a little depressed to learn he was leaving the ship before we cruised. I took the advice of another poster here and looked up Roadside Louie on YouTube, and I'm psyched to see that it looks like they put on a pretty rockin' show as well

They have also played with Slam Allen. I expect that is where the intro came from. If they are half as good as Slam they will be still be the best thing on the boat!

Slam Allen will be back in Fats Cats on that sailing, and TRUST ME, he & his band rock the house. And a few times he sings the blues with such emotion and soul, it will literally make you cry. Dude is incredible.

Lydia said the Oct 2 cruise was their last week on Epic. Didn't say if they would be on another NCL ship or not. They were previously on the Pearl. We really enjoyed them!

I loved Roadside Louise and the Dusters....they are incredibly talented.......give them a chance....I literally spent five out of seven nights in there...and I was one of those people that were dissappointed to not have the opportunity to see Slam Allen.....trust me..... you will not be dissapointed.......the best bar server on the ship is in there as well......Tell the lovely Venus that Cheryl said hi.....she is the sweetest......
