Joe Bonamassa's Fueling Musicians Program has been created to provide financial support to qualifying touring musicians whose careers and livelihoods have been put on hold as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.


  • Immediate cash payments of $1,000 to help cover the cost of essential living expenses such as food, shelter, utilities or medical expenses
  • Prepaid gas cards of $500 to help awarded musicians get back on the road when they are able to safely tour again

  • Based on the date the application is received, submissions will be compiled into a database. Each week, qualifying applicants will be randomly selected based on available program funding
  • Once an applicant has received monetary support, their name will be withdrawn from future drawings. The remaining names will be eligible for the next round of selections. Each week, based on funds raised, the number of candidates will be taken into account and the same process will apply
  • Individuals selected will be notified by email. To learn more about this program or how requests are processed, contact the Keeping the Blues Alive team at info@keepingthebluesalive.org
