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!

Everything You Never Knew About the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park (E-109)

Your kids may know it from a field trip. You may know it from Eastport A Rockin’ (depending on how good a time you had). It was notoriously it was flooded during Isabel in 2003. They host some kick-ass weddings. Free concerts– the Tides and Tunes and Summer Sunset Series.

But we can guarantee there’s a bunch you never knew! This week, John sits down with Alice Estrada, the Executive Director of the Annapolis Maritime Museum to dig a little deeper into this Annapolis community gem!

CRABCAKE: Eastport A Rockin’ THIS Weekend, a Conversation With Jessica Pachler (June 2017)

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!

Tim heads over to the Annapolis Maritime Museum to speak with Jessica Pachler. Now Jess spoke to us about living on the fringe of a high crime area in one of our first episodes, but this time, she changed hats and speaks about Eastport A Rockin’.

Eastport A Rockin’ is a single day low-key festival held around the Annapolis Maritime Museum. It will feature more than 35 bands on  4 stages right along the shore of Back Creek in Annapolis, Maryland.

But, Eastport A Rockin’ is not just about the music and beer—it is about community and giving back. Proceeds from the festival will go to help out local charities including The Annapolis Maritime Museum, the Annapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians (AMFM), the Eastport Volunteer Fire Department and Eastport Elementary School.

Tickets are still available online…and they are cheaper!  Come on out and have a great day!
