This Boat’s Big on Bass: ShipRocked Prepares for 6th Annual Voyage

Shiprocked logoA boatload of rock and metal bass awaits anyone taking the 6th annual ShipRocked cruise in February.

The cruise features a host of bass heavyweights performing as part of the Metal Allegiance supergroup: Rex Brown (Kill Devil Hill/ex-Pantera), Frank Bello (Anthrax), David Ellefson (Megadeth), and Troy Sanders (Mastodon).

Bands performing during the Feb. 2-6 cruise between Port Miami and Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas include Limp Bizkit, Black Label Society, Buckcherry, Sevendust, P.O.D., Living Colour, and Lacuna Coil, among others. Performances are held on the ship and on the beach at Great Stirrup Cay.

Along with music, the cruise boasts tapings of the The SDR Show podcast, a tattoo parlor, yoga, theme nights, and an auction including rock memorabilia to benefit the nonprofit Cancer Sucks, which funds innovative medical research and is dedicated to finding a cure for cancer.
