IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES GOSPEL MUSIC CELEBRATION CRUISE SAILING TO MEXICAN RIVIERA IN 2016

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on August 3, 2015 – 9:51 am -

IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES GOSPEL MUSIC CELEBRATION CRUISE SAILING TO MEXICAN RIVIERA IN 2016

IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES GOSPEL MUSIC CELEBRATION CRUISE SAILING TO MEXICAN RIVIERA IN 2016

Johnson City, TN – Southern Gospel Music lovers will have a brand new option for cruising on the high seas in 2016. IMC Concerts has announced plans for the Gospel Music Celebration to set sail along the Mexican Riviera. IMC first offered this option to Southern Gospel Music lovers in 2010 and after a tremendous demand to return, IMC will once again offer this Mexican adventure. “The very first cruise IMC ever hosted was to the Mexican Riviera back in 2010,” states IMC Concerts President, Landon Beene. “The Gospel Music Celebration Caribbean Cruise sold out in record time this year, after only four months, and with the growing fan base of Gospel Music lovers on the West Coast, we decided that 2016 would be the perfect time to offer this wonderful cruise, sailing in the Pacific, along the western coast of Mexico.”

The GMC Mexican Riviera Cruise will set sale from beautiful San Diego, CA, with stops in such picturesque destinations as Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. “San Diego is an exceptional port for departure,” Beene explains. “It is conveniently located for those driving to the port, with economical parking. Additionally, there is great pricing for flights and a variety of options for those choosing to fly.”
IMC has announced that for the first time ever, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound will be among the popular groups featured on the this Gospel Music Celebration. “This is the first time Ernie and Signature Sound have been a part of a GMC Cruise, and we are thrilled to have them for this great event,” Beene states. Other newcomers to the GMC Cruise to Mexico will be popular Inspirational Christian recording artist Jody McBrayer, and popular comedian, Tim Lovelace. Jody garnered more than two dozen #1 hits during his time with popular recording artist, Avalon, while Tim became a favorite among Southern Gospel Music lovers during his years with The Florida Boys and The Kingsmen. Tim is now the host of the popular Music City Show, which airs weekly on RFD TV.
The 2016 GMC Mexican Riviera Cruise will also feature many of the same artists who are regularly featured on GMC Cruises, including The Booth Brothers, Legacy Five, TaRanda Greene, The Liberty Quartet and pianist Trey Ivey. Many special musical extravaganzas will be featured throughout the seven-day Celebration. “We promise that there will be lots of fun surprises throughout the week,” Beene says. “The Booth Brothers and Signature Sound will merge together to present the Brotherhood program. Also, since Cathedral Quartet alumni Scott Fowler and Ernie Haase will be on board the ship, they will pull members of their respective groups together to sing some of the hits The Cathedrals made popular during the 1990s. There is always lots of antics and fun when Tim Lovelace is around, so who knows what will happen when he gets all the groups together and they start sharing funny stories from the road. This will be a week that Southern Gospel Music lovers and long time fans will not want to miss.”
 The GMC Mexican Riviera Cruise will set sail November 12-19, 2016 and reservations will be accepted beginning at 9:00am (Pacific) on Monday, August 3. Inspiration Cruises, the leader in Christian Cruises and Tours since 1981, will be coordinating the reservations.  To obtain complete information call 888-245-4284 or visit www.GospelMusicCelebration.com.
