The news just keeps getting better for those who will be cruising on the Oasis of the Seas for Beatles Tribute Cruise 2012. Along with 7 concerts in 7 nights music lovers within this private group will have the rare opportunity to receive private guitar lessons from Laurence “L J” Juber and private songwriting lessons from Mark Hudson.
Mark Hudson, who is currently starring in Season 2 of VH1’s Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp, co-wrote 64 songs with Ringo Starr including all the songs on his Liverpool 8 LP and co-produced 9 of his albums. Mark co-wrote the Grammy Award Winning song “Livin’ on the Edge” with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, and co-wrote a total of 12 songs for the band and co- produced one of their LPs. Mark will perform two of his unique Rock and Comedy Shows for the private group of Beatles Tribute
Cruisers. These shows will take place within one of the ship’s lounges giving
fans an up close and intimate experience.
Two Time Grammy Award winner and former WINGS lead guitarist Laurence “L J” Juber will be performing twice from these same intimate settings as well. Last year’s group of BT Cruisers were thrilled with “L J’s” two shows with some calling it the most incredible display of guitar playing they had ever seen. Shane Levine of Los Angeles said “I was amazed at the how he made the Beatles and Wings catalogue come alive with a new twist…despite playing just one instrument”. BTCer Bob Perrett
was one of the cruisers who received private lessons from “L J” last year and
thrilled that “L J” would be back for the 2012 cruise. “I’m already signed up
for lessons again and cannot wait to learn from “L J” again”.
Beatles Tribute Cruisers will be enjoying 2 shows from REVOLUTION– Beatles Tribute Band and from Revolution’s John Lennon, Tim Piper they’ll witness a special BTC version of his critically acclaimed Lennon solo show “Just Imagine”.
Mix in films and stories from Beatles bud Tony Bramwell, Beatles Trivia and Name That Tune with Joe Johnson of Beatle Brunch and a vendor show with Beatle goods you can see why this Beatles Themed cruise has become so popular. According Cruise Coordinator Woody Lifton, “It’s the only Beatles event where the Special Guests leave
knowing who YOU are. You get more than just a handshake and an autograph…you
walk off the ship as their friend.”
