Artist Autograph Sessions

The chance to meet and greet the artists of KTBA only comes twice a year! During our two sessions, bring a prized possession you've had for years or a newly purchased piece of KTBA merchandise to get autographed by your favorite Blues artists. Artist participation in each of the two sessions will be announced that morning (and is subject to change) in your daily onboard newsletter and on TV slides around the ship.

Please note: Joe Bonamassa and Kenny Wayne Shepherd will not be included in either Autograph Session. 

Guest Jam Sessions presented by SWMG

Our KTBA artists aren't the only ones with musical chops on this ship! This is one talented group of people and we are excited to give you the opportunity to jam on stage with your fellow Blues cruisers! In addition to scheduled slots with provided backline, you'll find a designated "acoustic jam" area to utilize spontaneously throughout the entire cruise for pick-up jam sessions!

Here's are some important details about how to participate:


  • Backline
  • Microphones
  • Keyboard
  • Electric Guitar
  • Electric Bass
  • Drum Kit
  • Production assistance + Sixthman crew on hand to help you get signed up and settled in


  • Your OWN guitar or bass (if you don't want to borrow ours)
  • Drum sticks
  • Harmonica
  • Super amazing Blues talent!


  • Once the schedule is released, you'll see a designated time to sign up for one (or more) time slots during the three scheduled sessions. 
  • Find the Sixthman staffer with the sign up sheets. They can help you out. We will do our best to match you with other cruisers, or to sign up your whole group.
  • Time slots are first come, first served.
  • Share the wealth! There are only so many time slots to go around.
  • Once you've signed up for a spot, we'll give you a card with the date and time to help you remember. If you miss your time slot, we'll give it away to someone else. (But we will definitely try to fit you in elsewhere.)
  • If the slots are full, we encourage you to come to the session anyway! There's a chance a spot will open up.
