Guest Hosts

The Rolling Keys Duo


The Rolling Keys Duo (Sarah Watson and Will Stead) are two session musicians who have worked extensively throughout the U.K. and Europe. Both have a wealth of experience in all aspects of music, performance, and theater from shows in London’s West End to large corporate events and arena performances.

Lead singer Sarah had her professional debut at just 16 years old, appearing on ITV’s The X Factor, where she was flown to Miami to perform in Kelly Rowland’s home. From there, she was offered a part in the original cast of the West End musical Loserville. Since then, she has performed in tours and regional theaters across the U.K., playing such roles as Ariel in Footloose, Kelly in The Prodigal, and Donna in Mad On Her.

Together, Sarah and Will have crafted a sound that has proven successful all over the world. Playing a combination of pop, Motown, country, and rock—from the Fifties to current chart hits—they are sure to keep you entertained.

Join us aboard select sailings of The Gauguin for a toe-tapping performance by this talented musical duo.
