Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea’s first four sold-out voyages saw the floating music festival sail to beautiful locations like Key West, the Bahamas, Costa Maya, Cozumel and Montego Bay, while entertaining over 8,400 passionate blues fans. Past performers have included many of today’s best blues artists, including John Hiatt, Robben Ford, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Blues Traveler, Beth Hart, Ana Popovic, Vintage Trouble, Marc Broussard, Shemekia Copeland, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Marcus King Band and many more.
