This film captures what Delbert fans and cruisers have heretofore been unable to explain. Through a wonderful intertwining of story and song, Jay Curlee illustrates the camaraderie, the music, the Pure Magic that Rocks the Boat.

One week each year a reunion occurs to celebrate the music, the songwriters, the fans, the world-class musicians, the history, the aura that is Delbert McClinton and his music. It's family. It's belonging. It's fun. It's adventure. It's a place where you don't have to ask, "Do you know who Delbert is?"

Finally, it's a way to show the rest of the world why these cruisers truly are "The Fortunate Few."
