Damian Marley’s Reggae Cruise ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ Sells Out Nearly a Year in Advance

jamrock

Less than a month after its lineup of top tier Jamaican acts was announced on his Facebook page, Damian Marley’s inaugural Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise has sold out all of the 2,300 available cabins aboard the Norwegian Pearl cruise liner, Damian told Billboard.biz in an exclusive interview.

So named for Damian’s 2006 Best Reggae Album Grammy Award-winning “Welcome to Jamrock” (Universal Motown/Tuff Gong), which peaked at no. 7 on the Top 200, and its blockbuster title track which reached no. 55 on the Hot 100, the Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise will sail from Miami to Jamaica, October 20-25, 2014, docking for daytime excursions and beach parties in the island’s resort towns, Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.

The enthusiastic, globe-spanning response to the cruise — cabins were purchased by reggae fans from Asia, Australia, Europe, the Caribbean and the Americas — signifies reggae’s broad-based, continual appeal, despite the genre’s persistently modest sales. “Reggae doesn’t traditionally move a lot of numbers but it is loved the world over and this cruise is a testament to that; we haven’t done any marketing except announcing the lineup in late September, and it sold out,” Damian told Billboard.biz on the phone from his Miami studio.

The lineup features Damian and his older brothers Stephen and Julian Marley; dancehall superstars Sean Paul and Shaggy, contemporary roots singers Tarrus Riley, Jah Cure, and Etana; sing-jay Busy Signal, Jamaican-American sibling band Morgan Heritage and the roster of acts from the Marley family’s Ghetto Youths International imprint: Wayne Marshall, Black-Am-I, Christopher Ellis (son of Jamaican rock steady legend, the late Alton Ellis) and Stephen’s son, Jo Mersa Marley. Also on board will be renowned UK selector Sir David Rodigan and three veteran reggae sound systems Jamaica’s Stone Love and Renaissance Disco and Japan’s Mighty Crown.

The proliferation of successful American and internationally based reggae acts over the past few years and their dominance on the Reggae Album chart prompted Damian to choose acts coming from the music’s birthplace for the inaugural Jamrock cruise, which will be an annual event. “Reggae’s root is Jamaica, and it seems that the world is losing a bit of that history so we were very strict in having most of the lineup for the first cruise be of Jamaican heritage,” Damian stated.

“We are very excited to have a reggae success story and another platform to present artists that we think so highly of,” added Damian’s manager Dan Dalton of Red Light Management. “There has never been a fully chartered cruise ship devoted to reggae so this will be like a festival with sound systems playing, a rock steady lounge or dub lounge, an 80s dancehall club, a multifaceted Jamaican musical experience.”

 

Marley and Dalton envisioned the Welcome to Jamrock Reggae cruise several years ago and shared their concept with Brian Edelman of William Morris Endeavor (WME), longstanding booking agent for Damian and Stephen Marley; Mike Rosenfeld, head of WME’s newly developed Cruise Division was also recruited to help spearhead the project. Noting the success that genres such as country and jazz have had with theme cruises in recent years, the team believed chartering a ship and taking reggae to the Caribbean Sea would be an easy sell, but they encountered many challenges in securing financial backing. “We were repeatedly told that the typical reggae fan doesn’t have enough disposable income to afford a cruise and that reggae events don’t sell out tickets in advance and because a lot more goes into chartering a cruise ship instead of renting out a club or an amphitheater, it’s more expensive and a greater risk,” Edelman explained.

“There are tiers of pricing depending on the view, the level of the cabin on the ship, interior or balcony, the number of people who will stay in the cabin and because there are so many variables, cruise promoters like Flying Dutchman have the proprietary software that enables them to easily ticket the passenger, which cuts through another layer of complexity like buying a ticket through Ticketmaster,” offered Rosenfeld. Rosenfeld has put hundreds of acts on cruise ships and says the Jamrock cruise is among the fastest-selling he has seen. “We just had the third annual Backstreet Boys cruise, which sold out in about the same amount of time and a year in advance, but the Jamrock cruise sold out after just a few posts on Facebook. The vast majority of the world doesn’t know this cruise exists because no traditional marketing or advertising was done, so we have barely scratched the surface of the potential for this market.”

According to Edelman 48% of the cabins sold were purchased by reggae fans from outside North America, representing 40 countries, with an age range evenly split among 25-50 years old. 170 people are on the waiting list should cabins become available for the 2014 cruise, and over 200 are on the waiting list for the 2015 cruise, the dates for which have not yet been announced. “I work in the live side of the business, I have been to events all over the world and this is the most globally diverse event I have ever been a part of,” Edelman acknowledged.

“We are also trying to get a few promoters to come on board, to draw attention to reggae from a business perspective, to open people up to taking more risks with our music,” Damian acknowledged. “The cruise will provide great exposure for our Ghetto Youths acts, but it is a broader mission to give exposure to the genre and show there is more that we can do to get the music out there besides putting out records.”

Bob Marley Grammy tribute gets mixed reviews from Jamaican music lovers

600702_485373901510717_1192814469_nIt was billed as one of the greatest tributes ever to an iconic musician; however fans and music lovers were left with mixed feelings following Sunday night’s honorary performance at the 55th Grammy Awards, dedicated to late Reggae legend, Bob Marley.

Word of this planned event broke late last week after a picture emerged of prominent Barbadian pop singer, Rihanna with Bob’s sons, Ziggy Marley and Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley; all of whom were rumored to be performing the tribute. After days of anticipation and over two hours into the Grammy Awards, internationally-acclaimed singers, Bruno Mars and Sting started off the tribute with a pair of Reggae-influenced songs: Locked Out of Heaven and Walking To The Moon respectively.

Both performances were received well by the star-laden audience, but were mere appetizers to the main course a few minutes later when Rihanna and the Marleys appeared.

Busy Signal

Busy Signal extradited to the United States

Internationally acclaimed Dancehall/Reggae megastar, Busy Signal has officially been extradited to the United States as he prepares to face criminal charges in the state of Minnesota.

The prominent singjay, whose real name is Glendale Gordon was under heavy police custody on Tuesday as he was accompanied by a group of U.S. Marshals who had arrived in Jamaica a day prior. The highly acclaimed entertainer was shielded from the media before the official execution of his extradition shortly after 10 a.m. yesterday morning as he entered a private plane at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston which would carry him to Minnesota.

Busy Signal faces accusations of absconding bail in relation to a 2002 narcotics charge he faced in Minnesota. Though the singjay is reportedly wanted on several drug charges in the U.S., the nature of this extradition request regarded the charge of absconding bail only.

Late last month, Busy Signal waved his rights to fight extradition to the United States as he prepares to fight the aforementioned charge.

In the meantime, Busy Signal has kept to his promise of releasing new material while in custody as he recently unveiled a collaborative effort with Grammy-winning Reggae megastar, Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley entitled Kingston Town (Remix).  His most recent studio effort, Reggae Music Again continues to perform well on local and international charts as a track from the compilation dubbed Come Over currently hold the top spot on the New York Top 30 Reggae Chart.

Additionally, Busy Signal teamed with award-winning American rock band, No Doubt on the single, Push and Shove which will feature on the group’s upcoming studio album which will be unveiled this September.
