Drum legend MIKE PORTNOY (THE WINERY DOGS, ex-DREAM THEATER) has checked in with the following:
"Congrats to Steve from California who won Sixthman's contest to be my drum tech for one of my performances on PN14! Check out this video for some fun behind the scenes footage of me, him and Jose (my full-time tech) at the 1st PSMS performance on Progressive Nation At Sea 2014."
Portnoy recently issued the following update:
"To all of you that were at Progressive Nation At Sea 2014, what can I say? It was a truly magical experience that I know none of us will EVER forget.
I must once again thank Sixthman for being so unbelievably incredible to work with - an absolutely top notch staff - the Norwegian Pearl for such beautiful accommodations, all of the incredibly talented artists and bands that came on board to share this amazing experience, Thomas Waber and Edgel Groves at InsideOut Music for their great support, my Del Fuvio brother Derek Sherinian for all of his behind the scenes involvement, and of course finally, EACH and EVERY one of YOU! If you didn't reserve your cabin and join us for this maiden voyage, ultimately the ship would've never sailed.
If this was the only time we ever did this, it was enough memories to last a lifetime for all of us.
But I'm hopeful we can pull it off and do this again (and again and again)...time will tell! Believe me, my wheels are already spinning with a million ideas... : )
Thank you all for one of the greatest experiences of my career."
