Charleston Harbor Tours has joined with the MOJA Arts Festival for two special Lowcountry Blues Cruises aboard the Carolina Queen.
On Sunday, Sept. 28, enjoy the music of Anthony Charles & The Blues Dolphins. Based in Columbia, S.C., these four veterans of the Midlands blues scene specialize in a mix of urban blues and Carolina backroads boogie sure to get you ready to groove.
On Friday, Oct. 3, we welcome Floyd Wilson & The Electrophonic Blues Band. Guitarist and singer Floyd Wilson – born and raised in Chicago – was inspired by Muddy Waters and Albert King. His classic Chicago sound is hard-hitting and emotional.
Cruises board at 6:30 p.m. at the City Marina, 17 Lockwood Drive. The cruise is from 7-9 p.m. and there will be a cash bar and snacks available for purchase. Tickets are $26 for adults and $24 for students and seniors. For tickets, call 866-811-4111 or visit mojafestival.com.
