KTBA is offering five (5) emerging acts an opportunity to perform their music to over 2,000 music lovers onboard the Blues Alive at Sea cruise.

Keeping the Blues Alive in partnership with Sixthman presents Keeping The Blues Alive at Sea 2015: A Celebration of Blues & Live Music starring
Joe Bonamassa, John Hiatt,
Robben Ford, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Ana Popovic and more to come!

Keeping the Blues Alive is a non profit entity committed to supporting music education in public schools. In just two years of fundraising, KTBA has already donated over $30,000 to schools across America, impacting over an estimated 12,000 students!

While the cruise alone will stand as a global beacon to our efforts in music advocacy and preserving blues heritage, KTBA is also proud to use this event as a vehicle for young, talented musicians and bands who are seeking to be discovered.

Our ship sets sail from the Port of Miami on February 17, 2015 and will cruise to Key West and the Bahamas, returning on February 21st.

Selected bands will be compensated with room and board PLUS up to $1,000 guaranteed payable at boarding!

Do you have what it takes to rock this ship with Joe Bonamassa? Do you know a band who deserves a shot?
