Ahhhh, this is a GREAT CD! It's great listening to at home or work, the music and the man are truly heart stopping. The girls at work are envious!
The musicians aboard the Star were outstanding, the band led by a veteran trumpet player who made up for younger guys who seemed less inclined to show their musical wares. Stan Sykes, a wonderful Black singer from St. Louis, reminded many listeners of Lou Rawls with his throaty voice and masterful renditions of top tunes.
The greatest ship experience was the music. My my my. Stan Sykes is a gentleman who is "Mr. Motown" on the Star and headlines the Carousel Lounge nearly every night. He is pure energy and dynamite and plays al the standard Motown classics plus other tunes and takes requests as well. WE danced the night away, the highlight being the "electric slide" the last night of the cruise heading back to LA. There was a special funk and blues review in the Spinnaker Lounge with Stan headlining with the Star house bandand it was fantastic. The dance band Luna was most enjoyable and did a 50's and 60's sock hop, a 70's night etc etc. Very
The lounge entertainers on the ship were in a different league than other ships - Stan Sykes and Jana Seale were so good we skipped the main shows just to see them, and many other folks did the same. We rarely had to use the customer service desk, but there was never any sort of a line, which is unusual in my cruising experience.
The entertainment on the ship is quite good. The Jean Ann Ryan Company is talented, for certain, but we weren't bowled over. We did like Shawn Farquar, the magician, though. I really enjoyed "Mr. Motown" Stan Sykes. He sang in the Carousel Lounge, and I thought he was amazing. I regret not buying his CD
