Depressed that John Mayer’s Mayerboat cruise has been docked while he records his new album? Dave Matthews Band might have the cure, as the Big Whiskey crew have launched a new contest that will allow some lucky fans to take a four-day cruise to a small Caribbean island to see DMB perform live. Contest entry forms are up now at the Big Dave Matthews Band Cruise Getaway Sweepstakes Website.

The small pack of winners will receive round-trip airfare and a cabin for two aboard the Bud Light Port Paradise ship, which departs for the Bahamas on October 23rd. After a stop in Nassau, the winners will be whisked away on October 25th to the tiny Coco Cay, a private island that’s less than a mile wide, so they can guzzle down pina coladas while the Dave Matthews Band perform in a pretty amazing setting. Then, it’s back to your landlocked reality. You need to be 21 to enter, considering this is Bud Light-sponsored.

Before Dave Matthews and the rest of the band can go on their tropical vacation, DMB still has two more months of touring to do in support of Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King, including stops at the Outside Lands Festival and Farm Aid. Additionally, Dave Matthews Band will also appear on tonight’s episode of The Late Show of David Letterman after performing on the Monday, July 27th episode.
