St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Music Therapy

Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation was able to help St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in their mission by donating nearly $1,000 worth of musical instruments and supplies to their Music Therapy program. Supporting Music Therapy at the hospital furthers KTBA’s mission to help improve the lives of children through music.


Alongside our weekly donations, we also fund merit-based scholarships and can proudly say that we have supported students at some of the finest music programs in the country including The Juilliard School, Berklee College of Music, Musicians Institute, Broward College, and more! We are excited to announce that proceeds from the Keeping The Blues Alive at Sea Mediterranean Fundraisers
