I was going to ask for Kashmir.

Last year on a NCL ship at a rock and roll party. I asked to hear anything by the Moody Blues and they did not know any of their songs.

That's not unusual, the instrumentation and harmonies are too difficult for cover bands.  Was surprised at Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA, that a British Invasion Band did a good cover of Tuesday Afternoon without the orchestra.

Sorry I have to disagree with that one.  I have requested songs from tribute bands and the house band, and if they knew it it would be played.

 

From the FB page.

ROOKIE’S NEW SHOW
Rookie is excited to unveil their new show, The History of Rock and Roll! Catch it on select ships. Message for details! Don’t miss this high-octane ride through the greatest rock and roll hits of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s!

 

This does not say that they can pick the songs they want to do.

It was not a cover band. It was a band from NY that was contracted to appear on that ship.

So they played their own music, no covers of other bands.

No they played music of other bands but they advertise themselves as available for weddings and other parties.

A cover band by definition is a band that plays songs recorded by someone else,sometimes mimicking the original as perfectly as possible and sometimes re-interpreting or changing the original.

i hope now that they put music halls on some of the ships we will be able to see more tribute bands.

 

the last time i saw a tribute band was 5 years ago on freedom.  it was the journey one.  they were amazing.

i have since been on oasis, harmony, symphony & navigator. i have seen savannah jack twice. not a tribute band. tony tillman numerous times.

 

it seems anthem gets the most tribute bands

Royal Swedes is the house rock/dance band and will be on until April.  They are excellent.

 

Phoenix - are they the band based out of Las Vegas, self labeled as "the best cover band you will see anywhere"?

Wanted was really good on our Ovation Hawaii cruise this past September.

 

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Rock the Boat? They are a cover band we saw on an Independence transatlantic cruise a few years ago and they were excellent. They were regulars on Royal ships for years but haven't heard anything about them lately.

Thanks Bob. I do check their website and follow them on Facebook but there hasn't been any updates since 2015 that I can see😔 I was hoping someone has seen or heard something recently.
