NEW YORK, NY – Where else on earth can anyone see the city’s world-class skyline while floating along the majestic Hudson river all while enjoying the world’s best contemporary jazz artists than during the city’s most popular live summer jazz series – The Smooth Cruises? For 11 years running, on every Wednesday night of the summer, the luxurious Spirit Of New York cruise ship has set sail from Chelsea Piers and around Manhattan island, Lady Liberty, Uptown, Midtown and Downtown - emanating live jazz from the genre’s most beloved artists.
From Jonathan Butler and Spyro Gyra to Down To The Bone and New York’s own Najee, this year’s Smooth Cruises boast an outstanding lineup of modern jazz marvels. The cruises also feature a delicious buffet menu and drink tickets can be pre-purchased online as well.
According to Sam Kimball of Smooth Cruise sponsor Marquee Concerts, “There’s something magical about being bathed in the warm summer air, the cool river breezes and experiencing the music of top internationally known jazz artists while watching the city float by. We look forward to the experience every summer.”
These Smooth Cruises sell out fast. So anyone interested is encouraged to get their tickets now!
