Rocking the Docks, a socially distanced summer concert series, was so popular at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal that Grain On the Rocks owner Lee Mikles has added three more shows this fall.
Unlike previous shows, the fall edition will host concerts beginning at 2 p.m., Sunday afternoons. Guests purchase 12-by-12-foot squares for $40. Each square can seat up to eight family members and is safely separated from others.
All spaces have great views of the stage and the beautiful Delaware Bay, Mikles said.
Food and drink can be ordered online by phone and brought out to guests during the show.
Taking the stage Sept. 20 will be Annapolis-based band Skribe. The band travels from town to town in a blue hearse spreading its own blend of garage folk: a soulful sound that draws from roots Americana and the ’60s garage spirit.
The ferry crowd will welcome Jocelyn and Chris Arndt Sept. 27. With vocal comparisons to Janis Joplin and Grace Slick, and guitar work likened to Jimi Hendrix and David Gilmour, siblings Jocelyn and Chris Arndt have charted three consecutive Billboard AAA Top 40 Singles, taken two albums to No. 1 on the Jambands Top 30, and earned a national TV debut on NBC’s “Today Show.” They’ve been featured at Sundance, Summerfest, South by Southwest and Mountain Jam Music Festival.
The final show of the fall schedule Oct. 4 will feature Wylder, an indie-folk quartet from the heart of Virginia. Wylder caught the attention of Train’s Pat Monahan, who premiered two singles, “Bitter” and “Save a Way” on his Sirius XM program Train Tracks, kicking off a successful run on AAA stations around the country. Wylder reached an even larger audience in 2019 when the track “At the End Pt. 1” was featured during a key moment on the hit ABC series “The Good Doctor.”
Fewer than 60 squares will be sold for each show. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to www.RockingTheDocks.com.
