The Blue Lords

About The Blue Lords

Based out of Norfolk, Virginia this hard driving band makes no bones about where their roots lie. The Blue Lords are a powerful, true blue classic, southern rock and blues band. With a blistering guitar attack, coupled with a thunderous rhythm section, the Blue Lords have shared stages with some of the biggest names in rock; ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special, The Doobie Brothers, Charlie Daniels, Peter Frampton, The Outlaws, Blackfoot, Pat Travers, Blue Oyster Cult, Kansas, Johnny Winter, Molly Hatchet, Steppenwolf, & Jefferson Starship, among others. In 2006, the Blue Lords single “Walk The Walk” was featured in the independent feature-length film, “Sweet Good Fortune.”

“There is something about the South, southern bands, southern music in general that resonates in your soul, says lead vocalist and drummer Steve Archer, and there is a brotherhood among all of the bands that we all share and are extremely proud to be a part of”.

Guitarist/vocalist Tony Bullard: “We all were raised on country music, classic, southern rock and blues. The Allmans, Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Marshall Tucker, that whole movement was an exciting time in music. We still love what we do, and it’s truly an honor to be able to perform for people and carry on that tradition. It’s all about the fans and the music, giving it your all at every show and being thankful for your blessings. We do … and we are.”

A long time Skynyrd friend and fan, Bullard was asked to escort the late Ronnie Van Zants daughter Tammy Van Zant to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremonies held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted by Kid Rock along with Black Sabbath, Miles Davis, Blondie, and the Sex Pistols, with Herb Albert and Jerry Moss receiving a Life Time Achievement Award in 2006. “An amazing night,” says Bullard. “Truly an honor we will never forget”.

“…Reckless, Wicked, Desperados!” – Don Barnes .38 Special

“…Check out the Blue Lords. They’ve been rockin’ for a while and I highly recommend them!” – Johnny Van Zant / Lynyrd Skynyrd

“…When you talk about the Blue Lords, no holds barred…the best!” – Dave Hlubek / Molly Hatchet

Band Update:
The Blue Lords band suddenly and abruptly ended in 2015, but the New Lords carry on its legacy.



What Passengers Think

I made 33 concerts this trip, and my wife had to miss a few. We had to miss quite a few meals to make all the concerts, but it was worth it. Also made 3 photo ops. Coming from Alaska we seldom get the chance to see a concert much less 33 in 3-1/2 days. My rating is still the same, on a scale of 1 to 10, RLC is a 100 (yes, one hundred). Thank you Pam, may you rock on for many more cruises.

Will & Cindy Godbey, NON STOP ROCK Will & Cindy Godbey, NON STOP ROCK

This was my 5th RLC out of 6 and will be on the next one in 2019. It is the only way to do a cruise and one of the best ways to have an over the top rock ‘n roll experience. There are three venues with shows going on from 10 am to past 12 midnight – every day! Once you’re done for the night, the convenience of your cabin is just steps away. The RLC lineup speaks for itself. There is so much talent, legends and upcoming rockers, on the ship! The people, your fellow rockers, are all there for the same reason – rock ‘n roll! Don’t be surprised if you run into a few rock stars on the elevator or just hanging out watching a show.
