Jam Cruise 2014 videos: Stanton Moore & Adam Deitch Drum Off / Alan Evans Superjam

I finally made it onto Jam Cruise, something I’ve wanted to do for nearly a decade, and it lived up to all of my expectations and more! Of course I shot a few videos :)

Stanton Moore & Adam Deitch drum off

One of the highlights of the week for me was seeing these 2 amazing drummers go head to head. Stanton Moore of Galactic and Adam Deitch of Lettuce / Break Science / Pretty Lights. Deitch goes off in the 2nd and 3rd parts and if I had to choose a winner it would be him. Although I think Stanton could cut him if he really wanted to.

Soulive drummer Alan Evans hosted the annual Superjam on the Pool Deck. The theme was movie night, so each song played was a theme from a movie or soundtrack.

In addition, I can remember that they also played Paid The Cost To Be The Boss with Nigel. The Revivalists came out for a Spinal Tap tune and maybe a Rolling Stones tune as well.
