All Aboard the Deltech Queen!
for some
Riverboat Ramblin'
Gamblin' * Eatin' * Sparkin' * Drinkin'
The folks at the Terry Campus of
Delaware Technical and Community
College asked Seger to help decorate
their annual Gourmet Gala Scholarship
fundraiser.  With a riverboat theme, he
created two twenty-three-foot smoking
stacks for the roof, a tree-lined stage
entrance, a festive Deltech Queen
foyer, a Grand Saloon festooned with
Spanish moss and hung with giant
playing cards and rivertown tickets, a
twenty-two-foot red paddlewheel and
a riverboat front porch overlooking the
Mississippi River with scenery
changing ever fifteen seconds.

The Foyer
Approaching the building,
travelers were greeted with
smoking stacks, calliope music
and a canopy of lights over the
"stage" ("gangplank" if you're a
pirate) entrance.
The Entrance included a twenty-four foot stage,
pylons, Spanish moss-draped trees and even Mark
Twain in his white suit greeting passengers.
A Dixieland band was
backed by the
magnificent twenty-two
foot paddlewheel,
complete with rotating
light.
Magnolia blossoms, playing cards
and poker chips enlivened the
hurricane-globed candle centerpieces.
Seger's trips down the
Mississippi River were the
source for the ever-changing
view just off the port side
balcony.

The restaurant kiosks were
outlined with lights and painted
red, white and black in keeping
with the playing card color
scheme.
