S/S Norway
North Cape Lounge

The Caribbean
Friday, July 12, 2002

Mike's grandparents, Anne and Mickey Chernin, brought the whole family on a Caribbean cruise on the S/S Norway to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Meeting other musicians onboard during the weeklong cruise led to an impromptu performance by Mike, his sister Elissa and the "S/S Norway Drifters" in the ship's North Cape Lounge.

The S/S Norway Drifters performed two songs that afternoon... First, a soul stirring version of T-Bone Walker's Stormy Monday Blues, with Elissa wowing the crowd with her powerful vocals. Then the group was joined by Long Island musical prodigy Scott Kish on bass guitar for Midnight Special.
