  • The event is a seven day European river cruise between Lyon and Arles, France leaving on Thursday, August 62020 on AmaWaterways ship AmaCello (CLICK HERE to see this ship layout).
  • Rick, Peter White, Kirk Whalum and Marc Antoine will be on board the whole week for entertainment in the lounge each evening…and to hang with during the day and at meals.  This is an up-close experience you cannot have anywhere else!
  • We have chosen this itinerary to merge music, wine, food, and the beauty of France!
  • The trip will include OPTIONAL pre and post trips that you can add to the cruise, but for now we are focused on the cruise.  The optional land add ons will be developed by our travel agent and of course one of them is Paris!  More on that to come after the cruise is confirmed.

WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE?

  • It is VERY different from an ocean cruise and any concert you have been to before.   The key words are intimate and unplugged.  From who you cruise with, to the great music you will hear, to just hanging with the band and like-minded people while exploring the beauty of Europe as up close as you can get.
  • This ship only has 74 cabins and it is smaller than our previous cruises because the Rhone has different nautical requirements, so the cabins are laid out differently.  So even less cruisers and MORE headliners!
  • Please note, because of the size of the ship, there are no outside balconies, only French style balconies for most of the cabins and some with upper windows

Jeffrey Osborne, Earl Klugh, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Rick Braun and Everette Harp are set to play the first annual Firebird Music Festival in Scottsdale, Ariz. Sept. 23 at WestWorld of Scottsdale. Grammy-nominated saxophonist Harp is managing partner in JEMrock Productions, the company putting on the event, which he says is the first of many. “We are looking forward to bringing our brand of exciting music festivals to cities across the country,” he said.

There was an established jazz festival [in Scottsdale] a few years back that drew very large crowds. We’re hoping to bring that back to the Phoenix area in a very big way. This is part of JEMrock’s long range plan here in Scottsdale. Also on the bill are Bob James, and Harp’s bandmates in Jazz Funk Soul, Jeff Lorber and Paul Jackson Jr.

Then we really get the party going as we are joined by the headliners. Rick Braun, our host and trumpeter extraordinaire, brings world class musicians with him each year, and this year is no exception, as he is joined by saxophonist Boney James, and the vocal pipes of Selina Albright, who will all bring the house down to ring in the New Year!

This event has sold out the last three years and we expect it to sell out again this year with this incredible lineup.

As if that isn’t enough, be there on December 30th to join Rick in a golf tournament for fun and fundraising. And then that evening join us for Start the Party Early, featuring the one and only guitarist and composer, Peter White, in a casual concert to get us in party spirits! This event sells out every year, so don’t delay.
