Live Music

Sometime in 2017 I discovered how easy it is to make live music videos using just my iPhone and the iMovie app. I am always on the look-out for any seaside venue where local musicians perform and now I’m capturing them for everyone to enjoy!

Since I expect my musician friends to visit this page, I will start with my original song about Buzzards Bay…

Annual Music Events

We recently stumbled onto an annual event on the docks in Oak Bluffs. It’s sponsored by the The Coop de Ville bar and grille. It’s a Pig Roast and concert. in 2020, it featured The Mike Benjamin Band and a lot of great guest performers…

Live Music Venues

My favorite pastime while cruising is to find a local hangout with live music. Any spot on the water serving food and drink is much sought by local musicians. Accordingly, ever performer I’ve found is extremely talented.

The sad truth is that these venues are very competitive and generally can’t afford to pay there performers a lot of money. The good news is this means they can be very picky and only book the best.
