MARITIME PERFORMANCE SERIES PRESENTS
THEM EASTPORT OYSTER BOYS

The Maritime Performance Series will present Them Eastport Oyster Boys on Friday, October 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Harms Gallery. For over two decades Them Eastport Oyster Boys have entertained thousands with their wit, wisdom and special message of stewardship and appreciation for the bay using a wide variety of musical styles that include island rhythms, boogie woogie, Dixie-swing, maritime chanteys, waltzes and even good ol’ rock-and-roll. Tickets are $10 at the door (cash or check only).

The group is a collaboration of a some of the Chesapeake region’s finest and most experienced performers (and boat bums) and includes singer/songwriter Kevin “Brother Shucker” Brooks on guitar and six string banjo, versatile composer/historian Tom “the Musicioner” Guay on guitar, hammer dulcimer and fiddle, renowned keyboardist/songwriter Mike Lange on piano and melodica, “Capt. Andy” Fegley on the trombone and “Mr. Pete” Miller on electric and upright bass.

If you’ve lost sight of why you live here, it’s time you heard Them Eastport Oyster Boys. With tongues planted firmly in their cheeks, they write and sing songs about laid-back life on the bay. They mix droll wit and a veritable cornucopia of musical styles – from Cuban jazz to Dixie swing to rockabilly to waltzes to calypso to country weepers to tangos….and they do it all with a joie de vivre that fuels good times like high octane gasoline. -- The Washington Post

The series is sponsored in part by Holiday Inn Solomons. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with beer, wine and snacks for sale. Performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Harms Gallery.
