An exclusive concert in Antarctica—Scott from More Please Music

More Please Music

Scott and the Bathrobe Brigade

Floor shows are a big part of a cruise ship’s daily schedule—one of my nieces even had a job looking after the entertainers’ costumes.

That said, we didn’t expect any shows on our expedition to Antarctica—the scenery, landings, Zodiac cruises, lectures and yoga classes were more than enough entertainment.

But we were in for a treat one night when Scott, from the kayak team, produced his guitar. He’s a singer, songwriter and guitarist, and his Canadian band, More Please Music, will be releasing its first album soon.

We shouldn’t have been surprised. Every member of crew seemed to be oozing diverse talents and skills, and Scott’s songs are definitely worthy of an album.

Our ‘concert’ lasted for more than an hour. I think Scott was egged on by a bunch of fellows who appeared wearing the bathrobes provided on ship. They sat together and formed a willing chorus of hummers and ‘oo-oo-ers’. During a break, Scott even went and got his robe.

That evening will stay in my mind as one of life’s spontaneous and cherished moments. And we were lucky enough to have a repeat performance on our last night on the Ocean Diamond. Thanks Scott! And thanks to the Bathrobe Brigade!

    Shakespeare once said, If music be the food of love; play on. Music touches our souls in strange ways.

    I love guitar music.

      There was a lot of talent on ship that ‘appeared’ as days passed. A couple of piano players, a few amazing dance couples and more. Who needed a floor show? 🙂

    Any reason for the bathrobes or were they pretending they were singing in the shower….er…after the shower…okay…so much for that line of reasoning. 🙂 Great post. Always feel like I am right there.

      The bathrobes were just general silliness. I guess if your cabin provides a bathrobe, you have to make the most of it. 🙂
