Atlanta, GA – Now in its 17th year of seafaring musical adventure, The Rock Boat – one of the first themed cruises of its kind – returns for 2017 with a brand new lineup and unlimited adventures in store. Hosted by renowned alternative rock band Sister Hazel (“All for You”), The Rock Boat XVII will feature five nights of rock ‘n’ roll mayhem aboard the beautiful Norwegian Jade with stops in two Caribbean paradises along the way.

The top of the lineup includes first time Rock Boater and feel-good hit maker Andy Grammer, indie pop star Ben Rector, and ‘90s alt-rock icons Better Than Ezra. Returning Rock Boat favorites include heartland jangle rockers Red Wanting Blue, Celtic tunesmiths Gaelic Storm, Texan-bred roots group Green River Ordinance, alt-rockers Melodime, rock & roll purists Wild Adriatic, the modern folk of Andy Suzuki & The Method, Midwestern soul rockers Welshly Arms, bluesy crooner Amy Gerhartz and the jam-happy Brian Fechino & Friends.
Newcomers include moody soundscapers Grizfolk, the intricate melodies of Jared & The Mill, party-starting maestro Andy Frasco & The U.N., piano popper Aijia, the funky seven-piece Ripe and the quirky art-rocker Wrenn.
