The musician, comedian, and Rock Boat stage manager took a break between sets and told us all we needed to know about the floating music festival.
All aboard The Rock Boat! What’s the Rock Boat, you say? It’s a floating 5-day rock festival with over 30 bands playing multiple stages throughout the day.
My friend Graham Elwood (Travel Tales episode 1 guest), was the comic relief on the boat and had a spare cabin – which I promptly filled. I even did a comedy set on the boat, and so did a young man named Matt Bannister, who was working as a stage tech on the ship for Sixthman, the company that books the cruise. I managed to sneak Matt away in between bands to ask him all about the floating fan-fest that is the Rock Boat.
To find out where Matt is doing comedy in the Atlanta area, go to his Twitter page. While you’re there, check out and follow Matt’s band – Sunset Love Affair. Matt can tell jokes before introducing his band, play in the band, and run the whole stage behind the scenes before and after the gig. A triple threat!
Thanks for everything Matt, now get some rest!
