The upcoming 5-day/4-night 2016 AXES & ANCHORS cruise – setting sail from Miami, FL on February 20 aboard the Carnival Victory, stopping in Key West, FL and Nassau, Bahamas, and docking back in Miami on February 24 – is pleased to announce two new artists to the cruise line-up! GILBY CLARKE, best known for his time as rhythm guitarist for GUNS N’ ROSES, and TONY MACALPINE, one of rock's most amazing and versatile musicians, are just two amazing artists that AXES & ANCHORS cruise will be adding to the already stellar line-up.

In addition, the cruise is announcing a variety of non-guitar oriented workshops for music fans and musicians of all backgrounds to enjoy. Musical education and teaching is very important to the AXES & ANCHORS mission. Whether you are a vocalist, bassist, drummer, photographer, tour manager or just interested in learning more about music in general, you’ll have much to enjoy on the AXES & ANCHORS cruise. In addition to the guitar workshops run personally by 10 of the cruise’s attending guitar gods, beginners and seasoned musicians alike can experience workshops like:

  • Rock photography
  • How to Write Lyrics
  • Tuning and Amplifying Your Sound
  • Sight-reading of Music
  • Voice Training
  • Glam/Metal Make-up
  • Clothing Modification
Ann Squire, co-founder of AXES & ANCHORS comments, “We've had passengers calling and telling us how excited they are that we are offering workshops, and they are even asking for other very specific workshops - like voice training and sight reading - so while we are focused on guitars, we are also providing something for everyone. It's exciting to see everyone so jazzed about our new format for rock cruises.”

As mentioned above, GILBY CLARKE and TONY MACALPINE are excited to be joining the AXES & ANCHORS cruise. See below for more information on each new artist and what they will be doing on the cruise.

:

GILBY CLARKE is a producer and musician who has collaborated with many artists including SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted and Nancy Sinatra. At the age of 17, he made the move from Cleveland to Hollywood to pursue a music career. His first real success came with the rock band CANDY before joining GUNS N’ ROSES in support of their massive Use Your Illusion tour. Clarke has also enjoyed a successful solo career with several acclaimed albums including Pawnshop Guitars. His latest project, KINGS OF CHAOS, features many well-known artists such as Steven Tyler, Glenn Hughes, Billy Gibbons and Robin Zander, among others.

Clarke was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, and that same year received The Video Vanguard Award, a lifetime achievement award given to musicians who have made a profound effect on the MTV culture with their body of work.

GILBY CLARKE will be performing TWO FULL CONCERTS with his band, and also offering a ONE-HOUR GUITAR WORKSHOP, and a PHOTO OP with each passenger!

Clarke states, “I’m so happy to announce that I’ll be taking part in the inaugural AXES & ANCHORS Cruise, setting sail in February 2016. I can’t wait to get out on the high seas and perform for deserving fans and enjoy all that the cruise has to offer.”

TONY MACALPINE:

Whether performing as a solo artist, band member, session player, or as a producer, TONY MACALPINE is one of rock’s most amazing and versatile musicians. He incorporates classical, jazz and fusion influences into the hard rock/metal genre on both guitar and keyboards. MacAlpine is a classically trained pianist and violinist. He began his musical education at age 5 as a piano major at the Springfield Conservatory, and at age 12 he picked up the guitar. “Discovered” in the pages of Guitar Player magazine, he went on to become a leader in the neoclassical guitar virtuoso movement. In his 25-plus year career he has eleven solo albums, four albums with his jazz-fusion band CAB, three albums with progressive rock band PLANET X, and a number of other band projects. In addition, MacAlpine has contributed both guitar and keyboards to a long list of records by other artists.

TONY MACALPINE will be performing TWO FULL CONCERTS with his band, conducting a ONE-HOUR WORKSHOP, attending the ROCKTAIL PARTY for Platinum VIPs, and a PHOTO OP with each passenger. Learn more at www.AxesAndAnchors.com.

MacAlpine states, “Come sail and rock away with us on the AXES & ANCHORS Cruise, February 20 – 24, 2016. It is a do-not-miss event and I, as well as everyone else, request your presence on board!”

The AXES & ANCHORS cruise features a line-up of world-class rock and metal musicians and their bands including ZAKK WYLDE (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society), YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, MICHAEL SCHENKER (Scorpions, UFO, MSG), ALEX SKOLNICK (Testament, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), TONY MACALPINE (CAB, Planet X), RANDY RHOADS REMEMBERED, TRACII GUNS (Guns N’ Roses, LA Guns), GILBY CLARKE (Candy, Guns N’ Roses, Kings of Chaos), DARIO LORINA (Black Label Society, Lizzy Borden) and more, performing concerts and conducting workshops. Passengers can look forward to more than 40 mind blowing shows over the course of the 5 days/4 nights on board.

In addition, more than a dozen workshops by day in guitar-oriented and non-guitar musical topics will train your brain! And, the cruise plans on featuring gear demos and displays from some of today’s premier guitar and gear manufacturers. Of course there will be plenty of time to splash in one of the on-board pools, roll the dice in the casino, soak up some sun on exotic beaches, explore the sights and sounds of Key West and Nassau, or just relax and sip your favorite beverage on the deck, all while rubbing elbows with some of the hottest rock legends and their even hotter fans.

Tickets for the cruise start at the competitive rate of just $899 per person (based on double occupancy), and include all accommodations, meals, concerts, open workshops, games, photo ops and more. Since the ship holds a limited number of passengers, early booking is highly encouraged. Get more musical bang for your buck on the AXES & ANCHORS cruise!
