Eastport a Rockin' 2012
Created as a way to expose local music to a larger audience, Eastport a Rockin' now draws attendees from throughout the neighborhood and across the region and is known as the local music festival of the summer.
Three stages now host 26 bands and music remains a key component of Eastport a Rockin', as up and coming local bands with a wide range of styles display their talents. Over the years, Eastport a Rockin' has featured such bands as Good Charlotte and Jimmie's Chicken Shack, and the next big act just might be in this year's line-up.
From rock to folk to roots to blues to jazz to bluegrass to funk, the breadth of music types found at the Festival is sure to please everyone who attends.
