Listen. Play.

The festival would not be possible without the live musicians!
All of the bands are local, showcasing the fantastic talent in the Chesapeake region and they all donate their time to the cause, and to the fun!

From rock to bluegrass to powerpop to Chesapeake folk to reggae and more, it was all on stage at Eastport a Rockin’ 2018. 

Interested in playing in 2019? Email us!

We aim to include the region’s best original musicians. Cover bands, please don’t apply (even if you’re a really really good cover band). Make sure you send a link to your site and sample tunes, as well as contact info.
