Longtime Epiphone Signature Artist Joe Bonamassa and his Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation have announced a special sweepstakes to help support school music programs. Enter the Hang and Play With Joe sweepstakes by December 15 for your chance to win a 4 night cruise to Costa Maya Mexico, $1,000 cash, a jam session with Joe, and a signed Ltd. Ed. Epiphone 2015 Joe Bonamassa Les Paul with Bigsby Outfit. 

"We want to try to raise $500,000." said Bonamassa in a video announcement.  "So far, Keeping the Bluels Alive has impacted 40,000 kids in over 200 schools.  It's so great to see what music means to these kids. Music programs can make a difference in their lives."

The Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation fuels the passion for music by funding programs and scholarships for students and teachers who possess the desire, but lack the resources or access to achieve their potential within the music industry.
