The electronic music festival cruise with over 4,000 people we've written about quite a few times known as Holy Ship! tends to be full of a lot of incredible "had to be there" moments from once in a lifetime B2B sets, surprise guests, DJs playing in elevators and more. Well on the January cruise that just commenced last weekend, third year attendee GRiZ decided to help close out the weekend following his 2 sets by doing something unique. He started a pied piper march of artists (including the ODESZA horn players) and ship attendees from one side of the ship to the other playing "When The Saints Came Marching In"
Then once he arrived in his destination which was the ship's buffet cafeteria he then performed a horn only cover of Drake's "Hot Line Bling" with help from the horn players from ODESZA's live band. It ends with a crowd of people the gathered chanting "HOLY SHIP! HOLY SHIP! HOLY SHIP!"
It captures the craziness, breakdown of barriers between artist and fan, and overall vibe of the unique experience that is Holy Ship!.
This was also a throwback to when he first did this stunt with Skrillex 2 years on the ship playing the Sexy Saxyman melody.
