You can put a deposit down and hold a room and pay your final payment in Decemeber or we also have payment plans that start around $80 a month ($20 a week). This ship is the newest and largest ship in the world. This ship is AMAZING! It is opened to the sky in the middle of the ship and has a outdoor concert venue with a outside movie screens.. too many things to list here.. check out the website www.7thheavenband.com/cruise to learn more.

New Pop Medley - Part II
So ya like our 30 songs in 30 minutes? How can we top that? Well come out to Durty Nellies on Friday March 27, we'll be debuting our NEW Pop Medley II (40 songs in 40 minutes). If the crowd is in a crazy mood that night we just might have to play both medleys and blow the roof off that place.
7th heaven blogger
So we finally changed our messageboard on our website to a blogger that the band and crew wil all be posting thoughts in. We are going to post all different types of things in the blogger to give you a insight of what our lives are like and what it takes to make 7th heaven run. Since we are new to blogging we're not sure if we'll open it up to everyone or not. Also the news section is now based off a blogger too, which will be easier for everyone to look back at the past news. We welcome any suggestions and things you would like to see.
