The magical musical experience that is Jam Cruise will be setting sails next January, when Jam Cruise 16 takes over the Norwegian Jade from January 17th through 22nd. After it embarks from Miami, Florida, the cruise will round through Roatan, Honduras, and Grand Cayman during its weeklong circuit. One of the benefits of Jam Cruise and what makes it such a highly anticipated event each year is the intimacy provided by being trapped on a boat in the middle of the ocean with your favorite musicians—the event is chockful of awesome collaborations that are unlikely to go down elsewhere due to the fact that such huge name musicians rarely gather together will open schedules specifically for hanging out and making music.Watch Nikki Glaspie Crush Vocals On “Killing In The Name” With Galactic On Jam Cruise [Pro-Shot]One huge moment from this year’s Jam Cruise was The Nth Power’s Nikki Glaspie’s supergroup dubbed the Nikki Glaspie Super Jam. Today, Jam Cruise released new footage of the super jam getting down on The Gap Band’s “Humpin’.” This sweet collaboration went down on the last day of Jam Cruise on January 24th of this year on the Pool Deck. In the pro-shot video, you can see DJ Williams of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff of Lettuce holding down guitar duties with Tony Hall on bass.
