2023 RECAP

The much anticipated return to Jam Cruise after three long years surely did not disappoint! On top of great music and great friends, this sailing allowed us to attain an important milestone of reaching $1 Million Dollars in grant funding provided to our partners! 


The Day of Service in the Dominican Republic was one of the best Positive Legacy adventures yet. 75 Jam Cruisers joined us at Project Esperanza's educational farm to help with needed improvements, while several artists including Fruition and members of Pixie and the Partygrass Boys joined us to provide the afternoon entertainment along with the help of students from the Bachata Academy. Karl Denson and his Tiny Universe conducted several different music workshops for the students and Jam Cruisers got to learn some new dance moves including Bachata and Merengue. It was a very special day all around! 


We had so much fun hosting Bad Boy Bingo with Little Stranger, crafting some upcycled sunglasses, and had a memorable piano performance during the auction with Ross Bogan of Doom Flamingo and his band mates.


Thanks to everyone who came out to support our annual auction including the photographers, bands, and those who took the time to craft some beautiful art and handmade goods to donate, as well as to those who bid on all the curated items. 


Jam Cruise 19 helped us raise more than $30,000 for our humanitarian and environmental efforts to support deserving organizations! It was incredibly meaningful for our team to return to sailing with thousands of our supporters and friends and we are so grateful for each and everyone who was a part of it. Until next year, Jamily!

The Jam cruise Day of Service is a fan favorite and historically always sells out. We truly appreciate the enthusiasm and gratitude that Jam Cruisers express for being able to help with our projects firsthand and being able to take away a life lesson from the experience. 


(2019) Day of Service guest Elizabeth shared with us: “Community Baboon Sanctuary Day of Service is my first experience and one for the books! Exploring the natural setting of the black howlers, giving back to make the sanctuary a better place for the community and of course, experiencing cultural and funky music with the kids was awesome! Definitely going to become a repeat offender for Day of Service!”

A heartfelt thank you goes out to Matt Butler for orchestrating the improvisational masterpiece that is Everyone Orchestra! Each sailing, Matt curates an uplifting musical journey for the Positive Legacy Celebration, and we are extremely grateful for all the artists who have joined over the years!
