The band Train is hosting the 3rd Annual Sail Across the Sun, cruise. Why should I care?, you might ask. Well, because the Bastard Bearded Irishmen are a top 10 finalist to also be part of the voyage! Other well know acts on the trek include Michael Franti & Spearhead, Phillip Phillips and Andy Grammar. The Norwegian Pearl will set sail from Miami, Florida to Ocho Rios, Jamaica. With over a dozen performers and 2 comedians on 5 stages, the 2,000 cruisers will also have a casino, rock climbing wall and a bowling alley among other activities.
