About the Eastport Oyster Boys
Appointed the Musical Goodwill Ambassadors by the City of Annapolis and the Maritime Republic of Eastport, the Eastport Oyster Boys love to share their musical celebration and stories of life on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. For over two decades they have educated, amused and delighted thousands with their wit, wisdom and special message of stewardship and appreciation for the Bay and its unique maritime culture and history. The Oyster Boys’ simple philosophy is wrapped up in the three basic necessities of life “a good hat, a good dog and a good boat.”

The Eastport Oyster Boys are known for their engaging and interactive presence with audiences. Along with their original music and songs of the area, The Boys often engage in an abbreviated and sometimes ever so slightly modified history of the Bay, its unique culture and characters and allude to some inside anecdotes that oft times inspire The Oyster Boys’ material.  Most of all, audiences will remember the good fun they had and will go home with a bit of the Chesapeake in their blood. 

The Boys are a collaboration of four of the Chesapeake region’s finest and most experienced performers and bring with them a wide variety of instrumentation including acoustic/electric guitars, keyboards, banjo, fiddle, melodica, trombone and even hammered dulcimer.  The Boys musical tastes cross numerous genres and include island rhythms, Americana, boogie, Celtic, Dixie swing, chanteys, waltzes and even some good ol’ rock-and-roll.

Though calling the waterman’s village of the Maritime Republic of Eastport home, their music has been appreciated nationwide and as far as the shores of Nova Scotia, Ireland and Europe. They have also been featured in numerous national and international print media, radio, television and film productions.

Wine and beer will be for sale and free popcorn courtesy of our sponsor will be provided.
