Event description


Bobby BlackHat Productions proudly presents the "2nd Annual BlackHat Blues Cruise" on the Spirit of Norfolk. Dinner included. Join us for an afternoon of toe tappin', finger poppin', hip shakin' blues with the Bobby BlackHat Band and very special guest Jackie Scott.

Jackie Scott is an award winning blues vocalist who delights audiences on both the national and international stage. Opening for the likes of BB King, Keb Mo, Taj Mahal, Lyle Lovett along with touring trips and festival performances across the country have all played a part in making Jackie Scott the ultimate entertainment machine. She recently toured in Brazil and was a featured instructor/mentor with the Fernando Jones Blues Camp in Japan. Jackie Scott is a blues force to be reckoned with. Ya just don't want to miss this performance! Seating is limited so don't delay.

And remember...You Never Know What's Gonna Happen at a Bobby BlackHat Show!
