"Rollin' On The River"

Your musical journey begins way down yonder at the mouth of the Mississippi in New Orleans with jazz & swing favorites like "Jump, Jive and Wail" and "When the Saints Go Marching In."  Next, roll down the river to Memphis to enjoy a little blues, soul and R&B with number one songs such as "Soul Man" and "Respect," along with a medley of Sun Record artists like Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and of course, the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley.  The final stop around the riverbend brings you to The Music City - Nashville, Tennessee - celebrating the city's early music roots, the incredible songs and stars of the 1990s and the sounds of today's country music headliners. 


A magnificent 8-piece show band fronts five of Nashville's finest singers supported by dazzling costumes, dynamic choreography and a spectacular visual multimedia and light display.  It's a spectacular evening on the General Jackson Showboat's evening dinner cruise!
