Join Berks Jazz Festival on Blue Note at Sea!
We are excited to be partnering again with our friends at Entertainment Cruise Productions (ECP) who have been valued supporters of Berks Jazz Fest for many years.
In 2020, we’ll kick off our 30th Anniversary aboard both Blue Note at Sea and The Jazz Cruise, two of the greatest jazz events in the world.
We hope you join Berks Jazz Fest general manager John Ernesto and dozens of Berks Jazz Fest fans on Blue Note at Sea ’20, sailing Jan. 25-Feb. 1, 2020, from Miami through the Caribbean on the luxurious Celebrity Infinity. Blue Note at Sea is hosted by Marcus Miller, Robert Glasper and Don Was. The result of a unique partnership with Blue Note Records and Blue Note Jazz Clubs, the 7-day cruise will feature performances by over 75 top-flight musicians, including many Berks favorites, such as Christian McBride, Gregory Porter, David Sanborn, Melody Gardot, Kirk Whalum, Eric Marienthal, Cyrille Aimée, Joey DeFrancesco, and, of course, Miller and Glasper. Blue Note at Sea is a highly immersive experience designed to satisfy any avid music fan.
Check out this short highlight video that captures the excitement and variety of the experience.

For those who enjoy more straight-ahead jazz, ECP also produces The Jazz Cruise which sails the week after, Feb. 1-8, 2020, on the same ship but to different destinations in the Caribbean.
Often called “The Greatest Jazz Festival at Sea,” The Jazz Cruise features more than 200 hours of great music from an incredible array of mainstream jazz artists, including many familiar to Berks fans, such as Kurt Elling, Dianne Reeves, Arturo Sandoval, Benny Green, Randy Brecker, Rene Marie and many others. You can find the entire lineup of over 100 top-notch musicians by clicking here.
You can even join musicians such as Christian McBride, Joey DeFrancesco, Eric Marienthal, Sullivan Fortner and Gerald Clayton who sail back-to-back on both The Jazz Cruise and Blue Note at Sea.
