A Bit of the Delta Queen Comes to Thespian Hall

From the stage of the legendary steamboat Delta
Queen
(well, the bandstand, really, the stage is what
most non-river people would call the gangplank)
come former cruise directors and extraordinary
entertainers Bob Schad and Jazzou Jones. They
have performed as a duo since 1981, when they were
paired as a banjo-ragtime piano act for the Great
Steamboat Race between the Delta Queen and
Mississippi Queen. Both these talented and engaging
entertainers had worked previously as solo performers
for the Delta Queen Steamboat Co., and from the
moment they appeared together in the Paddlewheel
Lounge, they were a hit. In the years since, they have
directed entertainment and performed their own solo
shows aboard these magnificent paddlewheelers.
Kansas City native Bob Schad has entertained on
USO tours to Asia and Europe, and has worked
frequently for The Mouse in Florida at Walt Disney
World, Cypress Gardens, and Rosie O'Grady's. He is
also a veteran cruise director and entertainer on deep-
sea vessels. Jazzou Jones, from Maine, has tickled the
ivories from a young age, entertaining regularly in
concert at clubs and festivals from coast to coast, as
well as playing locally in Cincinnati for ten years on
day excursions with BB Riverboats.
