In This Moment’s Maria Brink to Play Solo Piano Lounge Performance at ShipRocked 2020
Vacation is a time to explore and think outside of the box ... even for musicians. As such, fans will be catching In This Moment's Maria Brink in a manner they might not usually see at the 2020 ShipRocked Cruise. Brink is planning to sit down at the piano, performing her first-ever solo lounge act for music lovers.
“I am so excited to be doing ShipRocked this year,” says Brink. “And not only doing it again, but doing it by myself this year, I think, is going to bring something so unique and special, and a different side of me that no one has ever seen before. I can't wait to see everybody again and have everyone experience this with me. See you all there!”
Brink is just one of several new additions to the lineup, with Hellyeah joining in the fun, Ra making their first return to the stage in five years, and Aeges also getting in on the cruise adventure. They join a bill that already featured Halestorm, Alter Bridge, Asking Alexandria, Badflower, Beartooth, Black Stone Cherry, Living Colour, Of Mice & Men, Dead Sara, Ice Nine Kills, Cane Hill, Ded and more.
Hellyeah singer Chad Gray says, “We’re looking forward to living that castaway life, performing up close and personal for our fans, and hanging out with good friends in a more relaxed vacation-like environment on ShipRocked’s 11th voyage!”
"For myself and the band we are super excited not only to make our debut appearance on ShipRocked, but also to use it as our launch pad for the new record Intercorrupted for 2020,” says Ra frontman Sahaj Ticotin. “It will be our first show in five years and we are looking forward to getting fired up again with all the other amazing bands!!"
As in recent years, there will also be an all-star collective performance going under the moniker The Stowaways. Those currently expected to participate include: Aaron Spiers (RavenEye), Andy Vargas (Santana), Alessandro “AP” Paveri (Gemini Syndrome), Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory), Carly Smithson (We Are The Fallen), Chris Traynor (Bush), Chris Volz (Flaw), CJ Pierce & Jasen Moreno (Drowning Pool), Clint Lowery & Morgan Rose (Sevendust), Dameon & Gabe Aranda (Aranda), Geno Lenardo (formerly of Filter), Jasen Rauch (Breaking Benjamin), Jason Womack & Phil Buckman (Fuel), Jeff Fabb & John DeServio (Black Label Society), Joey Duenas (Unloco), John Tempesta (The Cult), J.R. Bareis (Love and Death), Leo Moracchioli, Lukas Rossi, Mark Vollelunga (Nothing More), Todd Morse (The Offspring touring member), Uliana Preotu (Cilver), Will Hunt (Evanescence) and more surprise guests.
As you can see, it's quite the music lineup for cruise-goers, with ShipRocked set to sail Feb. 1-6, departing from New Orleans with stops in Key West and Cozumel. Watch a video teaser below and for wait list information on possible stateroom availability, visit the ShipRocked website.
