The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, a virtual landlubber version


If many of you are sort of like me, and find yourselves hooked on the marvelous musical adventure that is the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, you’re probably beginning to miss them even more now that it’s about time for the cancelled October cruise.

If you’re a cruiser, you have probably already seen the following information on the cruise Facebook page. But, as a public service, the Blues Roadhouse is happy to repeat the plans for a landlocked cruise, starting Sunday, Oct. 25. If you’ve never been a cruiser, check out this modified lineup and get a taste of what you’re missing.

Here’s the LRBC announcement:

The musicians of the world, along with the live venues, the service and travel & tourism industries, and so many millions of others have had their lives turned upside down since March 13, 2020. Originally scheduled to sail out of Port Everglades this Sunday on the Holland America Eurodam, we have now reset LRBC #35 for October 24-31, 2021 and can’t wait to be back at sea together!

To stay connected with our cruiser family, we’ve teamed up with our fantastic musicians to present: Dry Docked & Landlocked – a Virtual Cruise for the coming week, October 25-31, starting @ 5:00pm CST Daily via LRBC Facebook Live and LRBC Youtube. We have also partnered with Can’t Stop the Blues, who will re-broadcast our virtual cruise daily at @ 9:00pm EST.

We have reached out to the musicians and staff across the globe who will be sharing greetings and well wishes from their homes. We will be featuring videos throughout the week of their living room performances, previous LRBC performances, and various activities onboard the cruises.
