Eli Young Band recently made a special visit to Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany to once again entertain members of the Armed Forces.  For Tech. Sgt. Timothy Covey and his family, a night under the stars with the GRAMMY-nominated musicians was the perfect ending to his tour of duty In Germany. With a Permanent Change of Station scheduled just three days later, Covey, his wife Carol and their three children bid Ramstein Air Force Base a fond farewell by enjoying the concert. They were among the estimated 5,500 fans in attendance during the July 16 concert. The Exchange, Pizza Hut and the 86th Force Support Squadron teamed up to present the show.

“We’re country music fans and also fans of the band, so we’re pretty excited to be here,” Tech. Sgt. Covey said. “Events like these are a great morale booster. It’s great to be able to come out and just relax and not have to worry about work.”

The band performed a set for the Kaiserslautern military community, including their new single “Saltwater Gospel,” along with #1 hits “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” “Drunk Last Night,” and “Crazy Girl.”

“What a great event and what better way to show the Kaiserslautern military community how much they are appreciated,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange and Pizza Hut are thrilled to play a role in providing the concert for this wonderful community.”

The day before the concert, Eli Young Band took time to meet with members of the military, sign autographs, take pictures and hand out t-shirts. Fans began lining up hours before the event in anticipation of the festivities.

The show marked the third concert the Eli Young Band has performed for the military community recently, in partnership with Pizza Hut. In October 2014, they made a trip to the winning base, Camp Hansen, in Okinawa, Japan with over 7,000 military members and families in attendance. Last March, they took the stage for a show at Fort Benning, GA for more than 4,000 fans.

“We realize how special it is to reach the 10 year milestone and we hope to honor our journey by crystallizing the feel of family that the Cayamo community has fostered over the last decade,” says Sixthman Chairman, Andy Levine. “93% of our guests sailing this year have sailed with us before and they have high expectations.  We plan to exceed them on and off the stage.“

Gliding through the gorgeous, blue-green waters of the Caribbean Sea from February 19-26, the 10th Edition Cayamo Cruise will feature more than five performance stages and countless hours of musical storytelling from some of the most gifted interpreters of song in American history, as well as special activities with the artists, meet-and-greets and the chance to witness a famous “Cayamo Moment” – unplanned artistic collaborations that provide truly once-in-a-lifetime memories.

A destination of her own, Norwegian Jade offers guests Norwegian Cruise Line’s signature freedom and flexibility to enjoy numerous onboard bars and lounges, 15 dining experiences, one outdoor pool, hot tubs, and a full menu of spa treatments. Guests can enjoy access to other entertainment on the ship as well, whether it’s a game of soccer or basketball on the sport court, a workout in the fitness center or tempting lady luck with a few hands in the casino, Norwegian Jade has you covered. Cayamo cruisers will make day-long stops in the tropical wonderlands of Cozumel, Mexico, and Roatan, Honduras, where stunning coral reefs, magnificent beaches and ancient ruins await exploration.

Double occupancy staterooms on the 10th Edition Cayamo Cruise begin at $1,445 per person, plus taxes and fees. For more information about joining the waiting list, visit us online at, or call Sixthman directly at 877-379-9175 between the hours of 10AM EST and 6PM EST.
