ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – BVI360 Tours is calling all singers, music lovers, songwriters and artistes in the Virgin Islands with the promise of an opportunity to network, socialise and groove with some of the hottest, most recognized singers and performers in the music industry on the island of Jost Van Dyke.

Owner of BVI360 Tours, Julio S. Henry, said his group is facilitating and promoting a group of 195 singers visiting the Virgin Islands via the Norwegian Pearl cruise ship on January 17, 2013 for a whirlwind of fun under the sun. He noted that more persons were also expected to confirm bookings for the tour.

The unique collaboration, he said, brings together songwriters and their listeners for an experience as one in the Caribbean.

This annual music cruise is sponsored and promoted by Cayamo and offers revelers seven days (January 13-20, 2013) of music, adventure, relaxation, and moments of discovery along the shores of the VI, Antigua and Puerto Rico.

Mr Henry further stated, “with good marketing, people from across the world are able to tap into whatever it is you’re selling.” He has been promoting tours through the website for almost three years thus far and is pleased with its progress through what he described as ‘good word of mouth’ through TripAdvisor and other websites.

Participating artistes on the tour include: Lyle Lovett, Richard Thompson, Brandi Carlile, Buddy Miller, Keb' Mo', Rodney Crowell, Shawn Mullins, Jason Isbell, Edwin McCain, Hayes Carll, Works Progress Administration, Joe Purdy, Chuck Cannon, Emerson Hart, Sara Watkins, Ken Block & Drew Copeland, Teddy Thompson, Dead Flamingoes, Jim Bianco, Robert Ellis, Jill Sobule, Delta Rae and Lera Lynn, with many more to be featured.

Locals are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity on JVD to meet, network and connect with these enthusiastic travelers, a mix of legendary and grassroots singers, and entertainers from various corners of the globe.

"Come promote BVI talent, engage in meaningful conversation and build a connection in the music world from 10 A.M.. to 4 P.M. This is a great way for young talents to get to know the music business from those in the business."

Mr Henry also said the tour was also a great way to promote the VI. "By being more aware of the people coming to our shores we are better prepared to welcome them."

Attendees are responsible for their own transportation to Jost Van Dyke and all additional costs.
