As you saw last week, we’ve launched a new weekly feature here at Groove Cruise… Walk the Plank Wednesday (WTPW)! Each week we’ll be sitting down with a Groove Cruise DJ and shooting the shit, getting to know him/her and prepping up for the weekend that awaits, that is Groove Cruise Miami, 2013!!
Last week we brought you an exclusive interview with Sander Van Doorn, and this week we’re sitting down with the gorgeous Sydney Blu! Sydney has become a resident and Groove Cruise veteran these past few years, and we’re obviously extremely excited to have her back on for another run at it!
