MUSIC FEST: Nine Musical Groups Eye International Maritime Music Festival
Bocca Musica is one of the featured musical groups scheduled to perform.
In addition to the twelve tall ships visiting Bay City, nine musical groups will travel from as far away as Poland to participate in the International Maritime Music Festival, an event within the event.
From July 12 through 14, professional maritime musicians will alternate performances on two stages, one in Wenonah Park and one in Veterans Memorial Park. Performances will occur during the time the festival is open from 10 am until 5 pm each day. There is no additional cost outside of the Daily Admission to enjoy these talented musicians.
Sponsorship from SC Johnson supports the appearance of participating musicians especially those traveling from Europe like Banana Boat from Poland, Nanne & Ankie from The Netherlands, Mâles de Mer from Belgium and Warp4 from Ireland. Participating musicians from the US include: Bounding Main from Chicago, Illinois; The Hardtackers from Columbus, Ohio; Bocca Musica from Michigan; and Bay City's own Hoolie.
When the festival closes at 5 p.m. Fri-Sun, July 12-14, the Tall Ship Celebration shanty musicians can be heard in a new entertainment venue "The Quarterdeck." Located within the festival grounds in Veterans Memorial Park, patrons of the The Quarterdeck will also enjoy Michigan craft-brewed beers and wines each evening until 11:00 p.m., 10:00 p.m. on Sunday. There will be a $5/person coverage charge to enter The Quarterdeck which is waived for those guests who have purchased a Souvenir Passport.
