BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, the band featuring guitarist Joe Bonamassa, vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, THE DEAD DAISIES), drummer Jason Bonham (LED ZEPPELIN) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (DREAM THEATER, ALICE COOPER, BILLY IDOL) will perform on next year’s Keeping The Blues Alive At Sea IX cruise, sailing from Miami, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico on March 18-22, 2024.
BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION‘s most recent performance took place in February 2018 at the fourth edition of the Keeping The Blues Alive At Sea, which benefits the Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation, Bonamassa‘s non-profit organization dedicated to providing students, teachers, and musicians with the resources and tools needed to further their music education.

BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION‘s next disc will be the follow-up to “BCCIV”, which was released in September 2017 and marked BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION‘s first studio effort since 2013’s “Afterglow”. Just like its three predecessors, “BCCIV” was overseen by producer Kevin Shirley, who originally had the idea of putting Hughes and Bonamassa in a band after seeing them jamming together onstage in Los Angeles back in November 2009.
BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION‘s inception took place when Hughes and Bonamassa fused their styles on stage in Los Angeles for an explosive performance at Guitar Center‘s King Of The Blues event. With the help and guidance of Shirley, they further added to their rock lineage by recruiting Bonham and Sherinian.
It is a bucket list trip for me!!!!
Awesome line- up, but it would be even better with Vintage Trouble on board!
