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’ 2017.
