B.B. King’s Blues Club to Rock the Queen’s Lounge Stage on Holland America Line’s new ms Koningsdam

Eight ships in the fleet will now feature the music and sounds of Beale Street

When Holland America Line’s ms Koningsdam sails in spring 2016, guests will be able to let the good times roll in B.B. King’s Blues Club — making it the eighth ship in the fleet to feature the Memphis music experience.

Direct from Beale Street, the B.B. King All-Star Band — an eight-piece group featuring two vocalists backed by rhythm and horn sections — brings the best of the city’s music to sea. From funky and fast to soulful and smooth, the band performs six nights a week in the Queen’s Lounge. During performances, the venue evokes the atmosphere of their namesake clubs on land with images of the legendary blues guitar legend. Exclusive specialty cocktails from the land-based clubs also are served, featuring the tasty, rum-based Lucille and Rock Me Baby concoctions.

“From the moment we introduced B.B. King’s Blues Clubs, they became an instant hit and guest favorite, and we’re excited to make it a permanent feature on our newest ship,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “Koningsdam is going to feature a wide variety of entertainment options and having music of this caliber is another way we’re standing out when it comes to the guest experience.”

B.B. King’s Blues Club will be part of the new Music Walk complex on ms Koningsdam that will centralize the ship’s musical offerings and partnerships, which include Billboard Onboard and Lincoln Center Stage.

In addition to Koningsdam, B.B. King’s Blues Club is featured on ms Eurodam, ms Noordam, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, ms Oosterdam, ms Westerdam and ms Zuiderdam. When the show sails on ms Rotterdam in April 2015, the band will perform in the Crow’s Nest on a newly redesigned stage.

“We knew early on that our partnership with Holland America Line was a huge hit, and by putting B.B. King’s Blues Club on Koningsdam more guests will enjoy our unique sound that feeds the soul,” said Tommy Peters, B.B. King’s Blues Clubs’ president. “We are honored and excited that the show has continued to expand from one ship to finding a home on eight ships in the fleet.”
