All the way from the world-famous Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee, Holland America Line is pleased to announce the launch of the B.B. King’s Blues Club aboard the ms Eurodam. Five nights each week on cruises through June 20, 2013, join world-class musicians from the B.B. King Blues Club Band as they create a dynamic energy that will move you to sing and dance along. The eight-piece band features two vocalists backed by a drummer, bassist, guitarist, sax player, trumpet player and Hammond B-3 organ player.
To create its own B.B. King’s Blues Club at sea, the ms Eurodam's Queen’s Lounge has been transformed into a vibrant blues musical experience, trimmed with portraits of the Memphis Blues legend, illuminating the prominence of Memphis Blues and its influence on everyone from B.B. King, Sam & Dave and Otis Redding to The Rolling Stones and Neil Diamond. A special stage has been crafted to resemble a Memphis club with guitars hanging in the backdrop. Exclusive specialty cocktails from the land-based clubs will be served, featuring the tasty, rum-based Lucille and Rock Me Baby concoctions mixed with different fruit liqueurs and juices.
In addition, “Memphis Sounds,” a live stage show directed by Marion Caffey (producer of Amateur Night at the Apollo) and produced by B.B. King’s Blues Club’s CEO Tommy Peters, will headline one night on each cruise on the ship’s Mainstage. “Memphis Sounds” showcases the true sounds of the American music genre of Memphis Blues performed by the B.B. King Blues Club Band. The 45-minute performance incorporates video projection to tell the story of the blues.
