It’s Spring! You’ve burned your socks, the smell of varnish and bottom paint is in the air and the snowbirds have returned to put a new coat of paint on the deck chairs. Once again it’s time for a concert with the Eastport Oyster Boys, the musical Goodwill Ambassadors for the City of Annapolis, the Maritime Republic of Eastport and the Chesapeake. The Eastport Oyster Boys play good-time original folk tunes, island rhythms, salsa, boogie, dixie-swing, waltzes, chanteys and some good ol’ rock-and-roll - all with a maritime theme. Their songs are about deadrise workboats, oysters, good dogs, blue crabs, and other themes unique to the Chesapeake. They may invite you to “Rock Around the Docks” or go “Downy Ocean Hon”. Spinsheet Magazine said “The Boys’ style is fun and easy, while their lyrics sing true to the beauties and realities of living on the Bay.” Though calling the waterman’s village of the Maritime Republic of Eastport home, their songs and stories ring true in any of the Chesapeake’s harbor towns, rivers or quiet coves and have been appreciated as far as the shores of Nova Scotia, Ireland, Europe and Australia. The Boys’ spirit and music has also been featured in numerous national and international radio, television, print and film productions. The band includes some of Eastport’s finest musicians (and boat bums): Kevin Brooks on guitar and six string banjo, the versatile Tom Guay on hammer dulcimer, fiddle and guitar, Andy Fegley on trombone and percussion, and Mike Lange on keyboards, uke and melodica.
