Every year I have the pleasure of going on the Cruise For Beatles Fans. Music In M’Ocean and Beatle Brunch recently announced that they’ll be taking a break from the yearly cruise to bring us something special in 2014.
Here is the press release my friend Margot sent me..
Newest Hard Rock Hotel (opening December) To Host 50th Anniversary of the Beatles Invasion
The new Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, opening this winter near Cancun, will be the site of its own rock invasion, when rockers and fans alike plan to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles invasion, Feb. 5-10, 2014.

I heard about this while I was on the cruise last week. I was immediately excited. While the cruises are special for me, I look forward to seeing how trying something different works out. The lineup is a top notch dream team. May Pang and Nancy Lee Andrews are old friends who I haven’t seen in far too long. As a Wings fan I look forward to having Laurence Juber and Denny Seiwell at the same venue. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting LJ on a few different occasions and seeing him perform is always a treat. Meeting Seiwell for the first time will be great. Mark Hudson is hard to describe. He’s someone who you need to experience. He’s a genuine guy whose love for the Beatles oozes through with everything he does. Tim Piper IS John Lennon. He’s also a fun guy to hang out with. I’m glad that Pete Best is bringing his band with him. I saw them play live in Clearwater back in 2006. What a show! The energy was phenomenal. I don’t have any experience or reference for the “Band On The Run” tribute group, but I’ve heard great things about them and look forward to seeing what they have to offer.
Not only will I get to experience all this, but I’ll be able to do it from an all inclusive resort in Cancun. What’s not to love???
I’ll be counting the days until this one. It’s really hard to top the last few cruises, but this has the potential to do it.
