8th Annual Boatyard Beach Bash, Sept. 15
The Annapolis Maritime Museum and the Boatyard Bar & Grill will hold the 8th annual Boatyard Beach Bash on Saturday, September 15. Coral Reefer steel guitar great Doyle Grisham will perform, along with the John Frinzi Band from Florida, Jim Morris, James “Sunny Jim” White and John Patty for an evening full of great music on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay.
“Over the past seven years, the Boatyard Bar & Grill along with other sponsors have raised more than $250,000 to help support the Museum’s educational programs. This past year alone, we served more than 2,237 students from public schools in and around Annapolis, connecting them with the environmental issues impacting the Bay and the cultural heritage of the hard-working men and women, black and white, who have worked here in the seafood industry.” said museum director Jeff Holland. “The Boatyard Beach Bash is a great opportunity to support this innovative program while having fun and hearing some of the greatest musicians in the world of ‘trop rock.’”
Tickets, priced at $60 per person, include a grilled buffet dinner provided by the Boatyard Bar & Grill and are on sale now at www.amaritime.org. There is also a special “VIP (Very Important Parrotheads) ticket package available which includes the pre-party to meet and greet the band, open bar and elaborate hors d’oeuvres.
