Here's What To Expect

The BIGGEST BLUES ROCK PARTY AT SEA just got even BIGGER! To celebrate 10 incredible years, Keeping The Blues Alive at Sea will be sailing for FIVE FULL DAYS in 2025 with some of the best live music in the world. Join your fellow blues community and our host, Joe Bonamassa, with an ALL-STAR LINEUP for our 10th-anniversary extravaganza. Sailing March 21-26, 2025, Norwegian Gem will carry us from Miami, Florida, to TWO tropical destinations: Harvest Caye, Belize & Costa Maya, Mexico. Get ready for an adventure of five days & nights packed to the brim with live shows, rare collaborations, and unique activities that can only be experienced on board. With the backdrop of amazing Norwegian amenities like serene spa services, loads of dining options, shopping, and refreshing cocktails, you’ll feel like a legend yourself.

This event benefits the Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation, Joe Bonamassa’s non-profit organization dedicated to providing students, teachers, & musicians with the resources and tools needed to further their music education. While sailing, you’ll have the chance to participate in direct fundraising with exclusively curated experiences, raffle contests for signed memorabilia, and other immersive ways to show your support.
