CRABCAKE: 23 years young– Eastport A Rockin’ 2019 (June 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

In 1997, James Borchelt had an idea. Gather 4 local bands. Have them play a street festival for free and give away the money.  Seemed reasonable. And THAT was the start of Eastport A Rockin. Maybe 700 people attended to hear The Kelly Bell Band, The Eastport Oyster Boys, Jepetto and Non-Fiction.

Fast forward to THIS WEEKEND— June 22nd!

Now, 23 years later, it’s grown ever so slightly under the tutelage of Borchelt, and successive organizers and literally thousands of volunteers. This year…this Saturday…there will be 40 bands on 4 stages. And crowds can still dance to The Kelly Bell Band and The Eastport Oyster Boys…along with Skribe, Sweet Leda, Sean Hetrick & the Leftovers, the Naptown Brass Band and the tunes of DJ Folly! PLUS, you can enjoy the cool breezes off Back Creek at the Annapolis Maritime Museum.

Listen in as we talk about this year’s Eastport A Rockin with Director Jessica Pachler and Music Director Christina Willharm who have put together one fantastic Saturday! Volunteers are ALWAYS welcome (free admission) and tickets are available online and in advance.  Save $5 with advance tickets which go off sale at midnight on Friday!

Have a listen!

Encore: Getting proud with Annapolis Pride (E-139)

June is LBGTQ Month and Annapolis is gearing up for its first LGBTQ Pride Parade & Festival on Saturday, June 29th. To gear up for this momentous event, we present an encore presentation of our interview earlier this spring with organizer and Board Chair of Annapolis Pride, Jeremy Browning.

Annapolis Pride!  It’s a relatively new organization that has burst on the scene in a big way. Last year they had a Pride March for the LBGTQ+ community. And this year there will be a Pride Parade and Festival in Annapolis.  Look for a Pride Night at the Bowie Baysox and many more events and gatherings.

We’re proud (pardon the pun) to have the Annapolis Pride magnet on the back of our car and to support ALL of our neighbors.

Have a listen as we talk to the man behind the organization– Jeremy Browning!

CRABCAKE: Here are your summer beers, but remember to drink wiser! (May 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20….or longer in this case, because..well…beer! In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, we continue our monthly series (no set schedule other than monthly) about beer.  We have a huge distributer of beer right here in Annapolis–Katcef Brothers Inc. and they have a ton of experts on hand to de-mystify beer for us.  Now, full disclosure–I like beer! I like beer a lot!  But, I am not a beer snob and a Bud Light will suit me just fine.

This month, it is all about the summer beers of which many don’t really seem to be beers at all!  As for the beer… on tap (pun intended) is the line up of Stella, Floyds, Innis and Gunn, New Belgium, and Troegs! Warning, we go off topic quite a bit, but as Lauren said…have a great summer but “drink wiser” and be safe! Have a listen as this episode unfolds.

A quick note on the sound– we screwed up and forgot a critical piece to the recording process–the memory card. So this was recorded using Plan B–which we always have!

Come along on our beer journey!
