Smooth Cruises 2016 - Hornblower New York


Smooth Jazz and R&B Cruises in NYC

New York City is spoiled for choice when it comes to being able to witness amazing live music and musicians. But some events stand out from all the others, and Smooth Cruises is one of those events.

Now in its 19th year, Smooth Cruises brings you more than just great music, it all happens in an unparalleled atmosphere aboard the Hornblower Infinity. Amazing views, vibes and music all together in the greatest city in the world.

Smooth Cruises always brings a stellar lineup and the the 2016 series is no different, with performers including Roy Ayers and Nick Colionne, Jonathan Butler and Gerald Albright, BWB with Norman Brown, Kirk Whalum and Rick Braun, Down to the Bone, Rachelle Ferrell & Rashaan Patterson, Najee & Alex Bugnon, and Freddie Jackson and Eric Darius.

But we know seeing is believing, so take a look at the video below filmed aboard last year’s Smooth Cruise featuring Najee.

And just because we’re particularly excited about Roy Ayers:
