Welcome to the First Annual Valentine’s Singles Jazz Cruise! We have 3 days jam-packed with so many exciting things that you don’t find on your typical jazz cruises. The obvious is, first and foremost, we are catering to the “Singles” Jazz population! Jazz, by nature, can be soulful, funky, and also very romantic! For most singles attending Jazz events, they don’t mind the Soulful, Funky vibes, but aren’t very excited when it comes to the romantic sounds. Is it because they don’t enjoy romantic music? No, it’s because they are not there with a romantic partner to enjoy the music with. That being said, Stiletto Travel Biz is bringing you, what is likely to be, The Most Talked About Jazz Event in 2015!

The master of Romantic Jazz music himself, Kim Waters, is our Headliner! Anyone that has been following Kim throughout his music career knows that his music is all about Love! For those of you that aren’t familiar with Kim, you are in for a special treat.

The weekend getaway is kicked off on Thursday night with the “Ice Breaking” Speed Dating Event. Here, the singles will spend the first night mixing, mingling and getting to know each other through a series of 8 minute dates. There’s no better way to shake off the awkwardness of striking up a conversation with someone that caught your eye or waiting for someone to notice you. We have taken care of the right from the start.

Now that everyone has met, hopefully there will be some “couples” that want to go on a longer second date. Well, Friday is the perfect day to do that when we reach our destination on beautiful Ensenada, Mexico. It’s the perfect opportunity to get away for lunch, shopping, or just strolling and getting to know each other better.

Friday night we bring the mystery and intrigue with our Murder Mystery Masquerade Ball/Cocktail Party. This is another great opportunity for our guests to get to know one another better by pairing up or forming groups to attempt to solve the mystery.

Saturday is a full day at sea, and what’s a full day at sea without a pool party? So get your hottest swim gear in order and join us at the pool!

Saturday night is our main event, the Valentine’s Day Concert by Kim Waters and his band! So come dressed to impress! This will be the main event of the entire cruise. And what a night he has planned for us. Opening for Kim will be a newcomer on the scene, Sherrell Renee! But don’t be fooled by the fact that she is a newcomer, Sherrell’s sultry vocals will captivate you and leave you wondering where she’s been all along! Saturday night after the concert will be our Valentine’s Day Dance. This will be the final opportunity to impress the one that caught your eye and possibly your heart as well before we disembark on Sunday Morning!

Cruise from Long Beach, California to Ensenada, Mexico from February 12-15, 2015

Behind every musical overnight sensation are years of toiling away in rehearsal halls, recording studios and sweaty nightclubs meticulously honing one’s craft. In trumpeter Joey Sommerville’s case, it’s more than two decades of writing, recording and touring to cultivate his following and establish his presence on the national scene. On October 28, the award-winning soul-jazz musician, songwriter and producer will release a new collection of songs that he’s been working on as far back as 1993 that will comprise his fifth album, “Overnight Sensation,” slated for release on his Jayvox imprint. The title track will crank up the party when it is serviced to radio stations for airplay at the end of this month.

The official “Overnight Sensation Album Release Concert” will be held at Suite Lounge, Thursday Oct 30th! Doors open at 6:30pm, show at 7:30pm. Tickets available via ‪#‎OvernightSensation‬ ‪#‎SuiteLounge‬ ‪#‎JoeySommerville‬ ‪#‎ATL‬.
