I was introduced to this cruise in 2014, when they hosted a summer camp in CT, basically in my backyard, with a few veteran bands. After attending the summer camp and making some amazing friends, turned family, we were told we weren’t allowed to miss the next Shiprocked Cruise. We booked.
It was announced there would be a Superbowl pre-party with none other than Wilson leading the halftime show. With their party style and fun personalities, complete with on-stage cheerleaders, I saw them perform live for the first time. I was enthralled. I had to meet these guys. They were just like me, just wanted to have fun, party, kick ass, and take names. I was lucky enough to see Wilson perform three times on Shiprocked that year. All three sets were a different type of “fuckery,” a term only Wilson fans know and live.
Fuckery is everything Wilson. Fuckery is in the air, the ground, your blood, and the way you choose to live your awesome life as a Wilson fan. After their half-time performance, they had a full blast, shot in your ear-holes, show in the Atrium Lounge. This is a glass room with tall ceilings where fans view from two levels, where drummer Puhy played in nothing but a kilt. Sorry to the fans in the front row.
Their third and final show onboard Shiprocked 2015 left all the ladies in the crowd with quite the view. The gents all dressed in bikinis, wigs, heels, all the way down to lipstick. Being five days into the cruise and finally meeting these guys, I knew something was coming. Oh boy, the booty shaking and in your face movements (you get the idea). I never thought I’d see a singer crowd surf in nothing but a thong. It was epic.
With two full length records out, Full Blast Fuckery & Right to Rise, these guys will be hitting the studio soon to bring you some more amazing party rock. As veterans to both Motorboat & Shiprocked over the last 4 years, you will not want to miss their shows.
I’ve since become good friends with this band. When they are in town we make sure they have everything they need for the rest of their tour, a place to sleep, clean undies (if they want), and we always have great conversation. Linked below are exclusive behind the scenes fuckery and a few other tour shows I’ve been privileged to be a part of and shoot.
So, while you’re on this year’s Shiprocked making your daily schedule of which bands are a must-see, always be sure to make a Wilson show.
