Concert Dates and Details

June 19,   Chester River Run-off Blue-grass. Chester River Runoff are an original bluegrass band from Maryland’s rural Eastern Shore.  Their honest, unaffected sound features big harmonies, insightful songwriting, and tight instrumental work, and they preserve in their live shows the warm spirit and humor of friends who first started playing together just to learn their instruments.

June 26, Eastport Oyster Boys – A wide variety of musical styles that include folk, island rhythms, traditional Celtic, Dixie-swing, maritime chanteys, haunting waltzes and even some good ol’ rock-and-roll.

July 3,  The Shatners A dance party band with tunes from Elvis to Prince to Tom Petty, 80’s tunes, Katy Perry, Blur, and even Johnny Cash, Violent Femmes and Ozzy too!        

July 10, Sly 45 Vintage Rock to Modern Pop. Sly 45 is the mid-atlantics living tribute to the swagger, style, and freshness of those early days when blues and jazz musicians were still figuring out what to call this new sound. From the blazing guitar licks, the come-to-daddy vocal stylings, and the dance-hall rhythms your feet never forget, a night out with Sly 45 is all rock and roll ever promised to be – a little bit more volume and a whole lot more fun.

July 17, Higher Hands – Funky Soul Fusion with a twist of rhyme

July 24, D ‘Vibe & CongaBongo jazz, pure good time party music

July 31, Blue Suede Bop- Rockabilly styles, honky tonk. Roots: rock.
