Last week I got hired to play a gig on the American Cruise Line’s new riverboat Queen of the Mississippi from Memphis to Paducah, which gave me a unique opportunity to experience a cruise up the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. Because of severely-low water levels, the boat could not dock at the cobblestones in downtown Memphis, and we boarded instead at the far north end of Mud Island.
