Sail away with Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents
On Sunday, Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents will jump aboard the Provincetown II as part of the Boston Rock and Soul Festival. The afternoon cruise, which is part of the Rock and Blues Concert Cruises series, will feature fellow local standouts Will Dailey, Tim Gearan, Dennis Brennan, Jesse Dee, Roy Sludge, Love in Stockholm, Christian McNeill & Sea Monsters and more.
Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents are working on the follow-up to the acclaimed 2010 debut album, Keeping Time. Last September, they released a new single called “Bandit of Love” through their Bandcamp page. The single also featured a cover of Graham Parker’s “That Moon Was Low” as the b-side.
With that in mind, we thought we’d catch up with lead singer Jen D’Angora (aka Jenny Dee) for a fun interview to discuss the band’s appearance on the concert cruise.
Boston Music Spotlight (BMS): Have you ever played on a boat before?
Jenny Dee (JD): Yes, a few times. I got seasick each time. It was still really fun though! It’s a little hard to dance while the boat’s moving, so there may be less Deelinquent moves.
BMS: What type of boat would you have and what would it’s name be?
JD: I would have my own aircraft carrier, because I hear you don’t get seasick on those. I’m not really sure what I’d name it, maybe the USS Enterprise?
BMS: Okay, so you are sailor, what’s your go-to sea shanty?
JD: “Shandi” by Kiss or “Come Sail Away” by Styx.
BMS: You are stranded at sea with one album – what is it and why?
JD: SO many to choose from. It would have to be something by The New York Dolls or Blondie, because I never get tired of listening to them.
BMS: What can you expect from your set on the upcoming concert cruise?
JD: To be moving from side to side – whether it’s on purpose or not!
