New York Wine Events announces a star-filled line up for Wine & Jazz On The River, a new entertainment cruise series -- just in time for summer 2016. The series, part of the new Circle Live Summer Concert series at Pier 81’s North River Landing, will take place on the luxurious World Yacht Duchess and includes 4 nights on the Hudson featuring 4 contemporary jazz artists in a splendid setting. Shows are Thursday evenings: July 7, July 21, August 25 and September 22 with Boarding at 6:00 PM and Cruise Departure at 7:00 PM. The Duchess sails from North River Landing, Pier 81 41st St. & West Side Highway.
The events will carry guests down the Hudson River as they enjoy world-class jazz artists performing live, while savoring exhilarating views of the NYC skyline, Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge. Each cruise lasts 2 hours, 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
“I am thrilled to bring a new entertainment cruise series to New York harbor,” said Sam Kimball founder of New York Wine Events. “The excitement of New York in the summer plus award-winning jazz artists on a beautiful ship is a wonderful experience that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy. This summer, we are blessed to have a roster of great jazz artists bringing their best live shows to Wine & Jazz On The River as part of Circle Live Summer Concert series. Who wouldn’t want to be sipping fine wine, enjoying a live performance by a Grammy-nominated musician while cruising past the Statue of Liberty 100 yards away?”
“We are excited to partner with Sam and his team to integrate a jazz cruise series into Circle Live,” notes Daniel Boockvar, CEO New York Cruise Lines, parent company of Circle Line
and World Yacht. “This new series fits perfectly with the unique experiences and destination we are creating at North River Landing with both North River Lobster Company and Fish Bar. Adding national jazz acts to the mix is a natural combination.”
