Joywave’s Bucket List Experience: Ghost Hunting on The Queen Mary

Nicole Alvarez takes Joywave ghost hunting on The Queen Mary

October 26, 2018

When KROQ's Nicole Alvarez asked indie band Joywave what was on their bucket list, she never expected them to say ghost hunting. But they did... and she happened to know just the place to take them to fulfill their bucket list experience.

She piled the band into a KROQ van and drove them to Long Beach to do some "investigating" at one of the world's most popular haunted locations: The Queen Mary.

The Queen Mary is arguably one of the world's most famous ships. It was bigger and more powerful than the Titanic and once hosted the world's rich and famous across the Atlantic Ocean before it was turned into "The Grey Ghost" troopship during World War II. After the war it resumed its transatlantic operations, but it eventually was withdrawn from service and sold to the city of Long Beach in 1967.

It's earned a reputation as being one of the most haunted places in the world, due in part to the nearly 50 reported deaths over the past 60 years. Among the ghosts reportedly still hanging around is an engineer who died in the ship's engine room, a "lady in white," and various children located throughout the ship.

Watch below as Nicole Alvarez and Joywave navigate the halls of this legendary ship.

Joywave will be performing live at the Observatory OC on November 16th with special guest Sir Sly. Tickets are available here.
