Happy Birthday to Us – Overboard Turns 3!

Can you believe it? It’s Overboard’s 3rd birthday and what a year it’s been!

We’ve released two albums: Castaways, a collection of our street performing highlights and Tidings, a holiday album full of modern classics and seasonal favorites. To top it off, we were nominated for a CARA for Best Holiday Album (Tidings) and won a CARA for Best Holiday Song (a dance mix of “We Three Kings”). Another of the songs from Tidings, our cover of John Lennon’s “Happy XMas (War is Over),” featuring a local children’s choir from Marblehead, MA, was played on numerous radio stations during the holiday season.

We’ve performed at a ton of gigs, ranging from small private parties (including Josh’s wedding) to a spot at Mohegan Sun, from community festivals to independent bookstores. We’ve said goodbye to old members and welcomed new ones. We’ve done karaoke late into the night on a Caribbean cruise and held master classes with local high school groups. We’ve sung in malls, on the boardwalk in beautiful Newburyport, MA and to each other on long late-night road trips.

It’s been quite a busy year, but we’re just getting started. Looking ahead, we have a ton of great gigs booked for this summer and fall. We’re planning a tour and recording a new album. We’re sure this year will be even better than last, so stay tuned for updates!

    So enjoyed your concert last night at UP in Upton! You are all so talented and can’t wait for your Beatles CD! I got hooked on a cappela music last year with Straight, No Chaser – I am glad to have found another group to follow! I have a song request for either Nick or (Stu) – The Man Who Can’t Be Moved. Fabulous song for your talents! Keep up the great work and look forward to seeing you all perform soon.
