Starting immediately, when you purchase ticket(s), the Event Registration Confirmed email will be your ticket for the event.  This email will contain a QR code (a square of dots and wavy lines) that is unique to your purchase. It confirms that you and guests (if paid for in the same transaction) have paid for this event. You will need this email on your phone or in hard copy to be admitted to the event.  We are working hard to make the check-in process easier.   Please have patience with us while we work through the details over the next month.

HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE : guest tickets are in addition to your member ticket.  For example if you want 3 tickets total you will be purchasing 1 for yourself and 2 guest tickets.  The same is true if you've previously purchased  a ticket(s) and log back in to purchase more. For example if you already have 2 tickets and want to purchase 2 more you will purchase another for yourself and 1 guest ticket.  Yes it's wierd but that's the way it is.

“There’s a young lady [Vanessa Collier] came onstage with me, I forget where I was, but she’s playing an alto saxophone, and man, she was amazing.”

 

Those are the words of Buddy Guy in a recent issue of American Blues Scene, describing an impromptu performance with Vanessa Collier on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise. If you haven’t been fortunate enough to meet Vanessa and witness one of her head-turning, fiery, and passionate performances, you should definitely make sure you do. As a master musician and multi-instrumentalist, Vanessa Collier, weaves funk, soul, rock, and blues into every powerful performance and she is downright impressive. With soulful vocals, searing saxophone, and witty songwriting, Vanessa is blazing a trail, racking up an impressive arsenal of honours, and has already singled herself out as an artist of distinction and one we would all do well to watch.

 

It’s not simply the accolades she has accumulated so far, although they’ve been many -- three Blues Music Award Nominations (BMAs), one BMA win, a Blues Blast Award nomination, the Jammingest Pro Award bestowed by the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, First Place for lyrics in the International Songwriting Competition, Best of 2014 Blues Breaker on Dan Aykroyd’s BluesMobile -- it’s the fact that she has accumulated all these honours even while her career is still in its infancy. A 2013 graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, she’s toured nationally and internationally, released two critically acclaimed albums (2014’s Heart, Soul & Saxophone and 2017’s Meeting My Shadow), and released her highly anticipated third album, Honey Up, in July 2018. Honey Up spent 9 weeks atop the Billboard Blues Album Charts Top 15, 3 months on the Living Blues Charts at #10 and #23, and continues to be spun on Sirius XM’s B.B. King’s Bluesville radio station!
