ABOUT JOE BONAMASSA:
As Joe Bonamassa has been a professional musician for over 30 years, he continues to blaze a remarkably versatile artistic trail, and amass an authentic, innovative and soulful body of work. Bonamassa’s career began onstage opening for B.B. King in 1989, when he was only 12 years old. Today, he is hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation and is an ever-evolving singer-songwriter who has over 30 albums to date with studio and live recordings, collaborative albums with blues sensation Beth Hart, and the adventurous side projects Black Country Communion and Rock Candy Funk Party, all on his own label, J&R Adventures. He founded and oversees the non-profit Keeping The Blues Alive
Foundation to promote the heritage of the blues music to the next generation, fund music scholarships, and supplement the loss of music education in schools. Bonamassa has received two GRAMMY® nominations, and recently achieved his 22nd #1 Billboard Blues Albums (more than any other artist) with the release of LIVE AT SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE in 2019. Kicking off 2020 with a bang, Bonamassa has just returned from recording his next album at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. He is currently on his spring US tour and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. jbonamassa.com
ABOUT KEEPING THE BLUES ALIVE FOUNDATION:
Keeping The Blues Alive’s mission is to conserve the art of music in schools by funding projects, scholarships, and grants that preserve Music Education For The Next Generation. Every week, we donate to a school in need of instruments, sheet music, supplies and more in the effort to uphold the rich culture and history of the Blues as a true American art form. Through generous donations from Joe Bonamassa, J&R Adventures, individual donors, and KTBA cruises, the foundation has been able to fund music projects reaching over 70,000 students with over $600,000 donated so far. keepingthebluesalive.org
