Having made it through Monday and Tuesday, come Wednesday some folks need a little extra motivation to get to the weekend! The Seaport Association in Norwalk is offering a series of adult only acoustic cruises through Norwalk Harbor and Islands every Wednesday in June, July, August, and September to get you over the hump! For tickets click here.
This two-hour cruise departing at 6:30 p.m. and returning at 8:30 p.m. has the added attraction of a beautiful sunset on the water. Imagine listing to the serene sounds of music while watching the sky fade into dusk amid the glimmer of city lights. The views are fantastic and so is the music…it is like attending your very own private concert on the water with 48 other friends!
On July 10th and 24, join the New Orleans Beatniks on an evening cruise and relax to the music of New Orleans with a little bit of funk and a lot of soul! Their unique musical style and the way they interact with their audience will make this cruise unforgettable.
On July 17 guitarist Glen Roth will dazzle you with his fingerstyle guitar work. His compositions suggest multiple guitars, but it really is just the talent of one man and his ten flying fingers and one instrument. You may have even run into Glen when in Grand Central Terminal or on one of the tunnel platforms because he is a licensed performer in the MTA’s Music Under New York program. Tonight though, he is there to entertain just you and 48 other lucky people.
On July 31, Joni and the Keepers are sure to lift your mid-week blues spirits with their entertaining set. Joni’s sound was originally rooted in Country and Gospel, but over the years, her repertoire has expanded to include blues and rock as well any genre where great songs for great women singers can be found. Joni has fronted several bands in her career in the Midwest and on the East Coast, opened for Nashville acts in the New York area, and continues to evolve her music by surrounding herself with eclectic and outstanding musicians, like The Keepers. This is a cruise not to be missed!
