‘Summer In The City!’ is our fun new musical stage production for the 2014 summer season.  It’s a great new OC Jamboree production that’s sure to be a highlight of your trip to Ocean City!
 
Settle into those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.  Come feel the beat of the rhythm in the heat of a summer night.  National Top 100 Country Recording Artist Dave Weatherholtz once again hosts an All Star Cast that includes Sharon Sorrentino,  Sean McNelis and Charlie Sorrentino.  Join us for this great new show that gives tribute to some of your all time favorite music of the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s.  In the tradition of OC Jamboree summer productions, ‘Summer In The City!’ promises to be a foot tappin’, finger snappin’, belly laughin’ good time.  
 
Young and old alike will find themselves singing along with our mini tribute to those great hit songs of the
British Invasion.  Audiences of all ages will continue to be amazed by the spellbinding wizardry of illusionist/magicians Harry Edwards and Charlie Sorrentino.  So don’t let the solid gold, summer hit parade pass you by.  Pack up the entire family and head to the beach this summer, then sit back, relax, put up the beach umbrella, throw on the Coppertone, tune in your old transistor radio to The OC Jamboree and get ready to sing along!
 
Tickets are $24.75 for adults and $8.50 for children.

Thin Ice at BJ’s on the Water @ BJ's on the Water

 Every time you hear a great song from your past, it brings back all kinds of memories and emotions. The song could be from the 60′s, the 70′s, 80′s, or the 90′s. They were songs with a melody and were fun to sing and dance along with.  Where ever you catch the Eastern Shore’s band Thin Ice, you’ll catch a lot of those great songs.
