Tunica Queen Offers Evening Jazz Cruise

Posted By on Tue, Oct 9, 2007 at 4:00 AM

If an early fall evening on the Mississippi River floats your boat -- especially one filled with the music of Mercer, Gershwin, Porter, and Ellington -- check out the Tunica Queen's first jazz dinner cruise scheduled for this Thursday, October 11th.

The cruise, which will leave the dock at 7 p.m., features an acclaimed trio of Mid-South musicians, including alto saxophonist Carl Wolfe, pianist Renee Koopman, and bassist Tim Goodman. Vocalist Jane Malton, of the Memphis Jazz Orchestra, will also perform.

Wolfe, a Grammy nominee for his composition "Yesterday I Loved," has played with Doc Severinson's band and has backed the likes of Ray Charles and Nancy Wilson.

The Tunica Queen is a three-deck riverboat that can seat 250 people and operates daily sightseeing cruises and dinner cruises. For more information and to make a reservation for the jazz cruise, call 1-866-805-3535 or visit their website.
