Blackbird is excited to have begun a partnership with Holland America Lines in the spring of 2015.
Beginning with the press event at Cruise Shipping Miami in March, Holland America announced it's expanding entertainment division which will include partnerships with Lincoln Center Stage and Billboard, along with a continued partnership with BB King's Blues Club.
Then in April, Blackbird oversaw the installation of new shows on the ms Nieuw Amsterdam and ms Eurodam. New scenery was built in NYC and designed by Jesse Poleshuck. All scenery was trucked to Florida, loaded onto the ship in a few hours and then installed and teched during trans-atlantic crossings.
Blackbird has continued it's growing relationship with HAL with the launch of the ms Koningsdam, the newest ship to join the fleet in April of 2016. The new ship includes 5 shows in the new state of the art World Stage venue, which Blackbird helped install while the ship was still under construction in Mestre, Italy. We also worked on press conferences leading up to the launch and the dedication ceremony for the new ship in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
