ABOUT JOE BONAMASSA
As Joe Bonamassa enters his 30th year as a professional musician, 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 released 28 solo albums in the last 19 years, 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. Most recently, Bonamassa has received his 2nd GRAMMY® nomination, 21 #1 Billboard Blues Albums (more than any other artist) and will be releasing the new live album Live At The Sydney Opera House in October. There are no signs of Joe slowing down, with tours already booked through 2020 and plans already set to hit the studio next year. jbonamassa.com
ABOUT KEEPING THE BLUES ALIVE FOUNDATION
Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation fuels the passion for music by funding programs and scholarships for students and teachers who possess the desire but lack the resources or access to achieve their potential within music education. Through generous donations from Joe Bonamassa, J&R Adventures, and individual donors, KTBA has been able to fund music projects reaching over 64,500 students with over $600,000 donated so far. We accomplish this by making weekly donations to music projects in education and scholarships all over the country. keepingthebluesalive.org
