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!
