...You’ve probably heard us talking about the Music Boat and all the established artists you can see perform on the cruise, but if you’re an independent singer, songwriter or group, how would you like to be able to perform too? It’s called the Indie Insider Experience and if you’re one of the first 50 to register, it could be you! Here’s the number to call, 800-889-5265, mention “Indie Insider Experience” and tell them that you heard it on Sonrise Radio.
