Tom Jackson has been one of the leading onstage consultant/producers for tours, showcases and shows in the music industry. His passion is to develop an artist's onstage skills, and to produce shows that are unique. Tom Jackson Productions and Premier Christian Cruises are now presenting the Music Boat 2008 Indie Jam Showcase. This is your chance to perform in front of top Christian artists and industry leaders, and compete to win one of two spots opening for a major artist on the Music Boat main stage and a spot on Christian Music's largest tour: Winter Jam! - All the while cruising through the gorgeous waters of the Caribbean with nightly performances by your favorite Christian artists.

The Cruise departs from Miami and sails to Key West and Calica, Mexico. Lodging and meals on the boat will be provided, all other expenses such as transportation to Miami will not be included. Artists from around the United States and Canada are signing up to perform on this indie-only stage during the music cruise, and one of the Indie Jam performance spots will go to a Sonicbids artist!

Here’s what the selected Sonicbids artist/band will receive:

  • A spot to compete in the Indie Jam Showcase held on board The Music Boat 2008, May 19-23. Performing artists also have the chance to win one of two spots opening for a major artist on the Music Boat main stage and possibly even a spot on the Winter Jam tour. During the event, both artists on stage and in the audience will learn valuable tips as Tom works hands on with some of the contestants in front of everyone in attendance.

  • One free Music Boat 2008 cabin that sleeps up to 4 people (any extra band members or guests would need to book and pay for extra cabins on the Music Boat, dependent on space available).


    Preliminary rounds of the competition will be judged by industry professionals on the cruise (to be decided by Premier Christian Cruises). The Semi-Final and Final rounds of the competition will be judged by a panel consisting of:

  • Tom Jackson - Live Music Producer and Performance Coach

  • Elliott Cunningham - Marketing Strategist, former Record Label Owner, Producer
