The ninth annual Sandy Beaches Cruise sets sail January 11 from Tampa and will visit the Grand Caymans, Santo Tomas de Castillo, Guatemala, and Cozumel before returning January 18.

Onboard for the good ship non-pop are Del McCoury Band, Bonnie Bramlett, The Derailers, Marcia Ball, Wayne Toups, Tommy Castro and many others.

“It’s not like going to a concert because everyone’s in the same boat,” McClinton said. And quite literally so. Fans will get to mingle with the artists and enjoy the round-the-clock music.
