The Madam Carroll is excited to bring you Bruce Barker, The Piano Man! Born and raised in Indiana, Bruce grew up in Romney and graduated from McCutcheon in 1986. After a short stint working at McDonalds, then as a chimney sweep, Bruce began playing (just about everything) at the Neon Cactus adjacent from Purdue University. He’s been entertaining crowds and playing your favorites on the piano ever since.

- This cruise has been limited in capacity for guest safety. More tickets may be released as the event nears based on the recommendations of state and local health departments.
- All guests boarding the Madam Carroll are required to have in their possession and be wearing a face mask while boarding the vessel. Your face mask may be removed once you are seated on the vessel and consuming food or drink or you are on either the 2nd or 3rd open air deck and social distancing is possible.
- If circumstances of the pandemic dictate that we must cancel this cruise, a new date for the event will be scheduled in which your tickets will still be valid. Tickets are non-refundable.
Regarding Inclement Weather:
The Madam Carroll cruises rain or shine. However, it is the sole discretion of this vessels captain and ownership to determine if inclement weather could create hazardous conditions in which case the ship will remain at dock and this event will continue as scheduled.
Regarding Lake Levels:
After nearly 100 years of keeping Lake Freeman and Lake Schafer level, the US Fish and Wildlife Department intervened and mandated that the water flow leaving the Oakdale Dam be maintained to a specific cubic foot per second to protect an endangered mussel species below the dam on the river. In times of drought, the water levels in Lake Freeman are dropped to maintain constant river flows below the dam. In this event, it becomes unsafe for the vessel to cruise. If this is the case, the ship will remain at dock and this event will continue as scheduled. You can learn more about this erroneous calculation on behalf of the US Fish and Wildlife Department and how you can help the Madam Carroll continue her operation in this article.
