Smooth Jazz New York Announces 2015 Smooth Cruise Schedule

New York’s Premier Summer Contemporary Jazz Series Returns!

Smooth Jazz New York in association with Marquee Concerts is pleased to announce another star-studded line up for the Smooth Cruise series, now in its 18th year. The 2015 season takes place aboard The Hornblower Infinity, a 210-foot luxury yacht.

The cruises set sail Wednesday evenings, June 24 through September 2. The summer’s roster includes 9 nights featuring 15 of the world’s greatest contemporary jazz and R&B acts in a stunning, intimate setting with shows at 6:30 and 9:30pm. The Smooth Cruises depart from Pier 40, located at Houston Street at the West Side Highway and cruise down the Hudson, offering both world-class musical acts as well as breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and the New York City skyline.

“It’s great to be back on The Hornblower Infinity with the 2015 Smooth Cruises,” notes Bill Zafiros, co-founder of Smooth Jazz New York. “Our guests really appreciated last year’s move to the larger, more upscale ship featuring improved sight-lines. Now they can enjoy watching the world’s best contemporary jazz acts more than ever before out on the scenic Hudson River.”
