The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, famous for world-class racing, has added a musical act to its entertainment lineup.

Along with an action-packed race schedule this year, the Jacksons, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon, will headline the regatta's final party on March 3, according to John Leone, the Heineken Regatta's production director.

"They need no introduction," Leone said. "Their iconic through-the-decades music will inspire all regatta competitors and party revelers. Hearing this band on this beautiful Caribbean island will be legendary."

The Heineken Regatta, now in its 39th year, is set for Feb. 28 through March 3 at the Port de Plaisance Resort, Casino and Yacht Club.
