Bob Schad and Jazzou Jones
Bob Schad and Jazzou Jones 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 Company, and from the moment they appeared together in the Paddlewheel Lounge, they were a hit. In the years since, they have both served as Cruise Director for the Delta Queen steamboats, each directing entertainment and performing their solo shows aboard these magnificent paddlewheelers.
Bob Schad has entertained on USO tours to Asia and Europe, and has appeared frequently in Florida at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, Cypress Gardens, and Rosie O'Grady's. He is also a veteran Cruise Director and Entertainer on deep sea vessels.
Jazzou Jones 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.
