BEHIND THE D.O.R.R. - DECEMBER 2019 ISSUE
With this past Thursday being Thanksgiving I reminisce on things that I am thankful for, and as I reflected on those moments my mind took me back to the year 2004. That year was a pivotal year. That was the year I had an idea of creating some type of Rock & Roll event and combining it with a cruise for a music packed week of nothing but Rock & Roll Fun. I had people who thought I had lost my mind or possibly went insane, but the more I was told it couldn't be done, the more determined I was to try and figure out a way that it could be done. After about two years of strategizing, discussing, and to be quite honest, winging it, we set sail on our very first Rock & Roll Cruise. The year was now 2006, and just as I had suspected, everyone on that first cruise had a blast. Over the years its fair to say we've evolved quite a bit, and here we are getting ready to complete our 14th year. It seems like just yesterday, and yet it was so long ago. All of us here at Decades Of Rock & Roll Cruise are forever grateful for our guests who have supported us throughout the years and continue to support us by signing up and cruising with us for this spectacular musical experience. Without our guests we could not have been able to do this for as long as we have. We just wanted to extend our biggest Thank You to all of you who help keep this cruise and music alive throughout the 'Decades'. And as long as we have guests who want to spend a week with all of us we will continue on through the 'Decades' offering each and everyone of you the best Rock & Roll Cruise experience out there. THANK YOU!
By now most of you should have received your updated invoices in the mail that was mailed out after the November 4, 2019 payment was made. The only balances that should remain on the statements would be those who are staying at the hotel the night before the cruise (February 14). If you have requested to stay at the hotel the night before the cruise and/or after the cruise on Sunday, February 23 and you do not see a balance on your statement please contact me a.s.a.p. to verify. If you haven't signed up yet for the hotel and would like to stay give us a call at 740-438-0382 and we can get you signed up. We still have a few rooms left. You won't regret it. It's a fun evening.
We will be collecting that hotel payment on December 2, 2019. Just as we did with the previous payments we will charge the card we have on file. We will send out one more mailing reflecting that payment. Within that mailing you will also receive your entertainment itinerary. You can expect to receive that either the end of December or first part of January.
We have officially designed the 2020 Decades Of Rock & Roll Cruise T-Shirt. The logo is on the front of the shirt, and all the entertainers are listed on the back. Here is a picture of the front & back of the shirts. They look awesome. You all did a great job choosing the color for 2020.

Our November travels took us to places like Elkhart and Angola, IN where Hotel California 'A Salute To The Eagles' played to Sold Out Shows. Next we found ourselves back in The Villages, FL where they played to two Sold Out Shows at the Savannah Center. It was great seeing old friends while meeting and making new ones along the way. Here's a few pictures from those shows.

KUDOS TO STEVE PROBST
We are very excited & proud of Steve Probst. As most of you know Steve is a Singer/Songwriter, and A major ‘music row’ publisher put out requests looking for songs to be recorded for a specific award winning country artist, and stated within the requirements that they would “only be looking for "HITS” that can bring the artist back to the top of the charts." In other words – the bar for this request will be high, and only the best of the best will be forwarded.” Well.... Steve submitted his newest song “Stupid Little Heart” and it was forwarded for consideration. THAT is a very big deal and very exciting news!! Way To Go Steve! Feel free to take a listen to this song by clicking the link below. It’s a great song.
VIDEO FEATURE OF THE MONTH
This months video feature features Hadden Sayers. Hadden is a Singer/Songwriter with many original songs of his own however he does such a great job on this song and it is a crowd favorite. It is one of his most requested songs on the cruise. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The song is Purple Rain.
We hope you enjoyed this months issue of BEHIND THE D.O.R.R. This months issue was a little longer than normal, but we had a lot of news to cover. All of us here at Decades Of Rock & Roll Cruise would like to wish each and everyone of you a Very Merry Christmas and a very Joyful Holiday Season.
Until next time....Bye
