Friends of KUNI present Blues Cruise with Bob Dorr & the Blue Band:
Set sail with Iowa Public Radio on Friday, June 6 on the mighty Mississippi River for the 2008 Blues Cruise. Join the Friends of KUNI and the Spirit of Dubuque for a three-hour tour with Bob Dorr & the Blue Band.
The Blue Band is celebrating their recent induction into the Iowa Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Led by Iowa Public Radio’s very own Bob Dorr, the Blue Band has acquired a dedicated fan base of all ages and has become one of Iowa’s most revered and requested bands.
The Spirit of Dubuque is a replica of a century-old Mississippi River steamboat with decorative smokestacks, a scalloped canopy over its open-air deck, and Victorian red and gold décor throughout the enclosed dining salon. The gangway and dining area are handicapped accessible for standard wheelchairs.
Boarding begins at 7 p.m. at the 3rd Street Ice Harbor in Dubuque. The Blues Cruise departs at 7:30 p.m. and returns at 10:30 p.m. Drinks and concessions are available and sold separately.
