The Boatmen…

Recently the four guys of The Boatmen performed at a local pub and eatery called PJ Kelly’s ( in Clarksburg, WV. I had the chance to interview them for a promotional video as well as upcoming programs on our internet radio station set to launch later this fall. Here are three things I took from the performance.

First and foremost talent doesn’t do justice to describe the music skill Nick, Matt, Randy and Rob possess. Each has a unique background that has brought them to this point in their careers. Diverse musical influences, mastering their instruments, their craft and attitude are on display when they sit down on stage. Well rounded and growing these guys know to play and play they do.

Second, chemistry; it’s not just a science term! From the set up to the wrap up the chemistry between them is felt deep in the music soul we all have. Great writing, great melody, great harmony and absolute fun resonates which means you will feel it, too!

Finally, performance oriented and trust me when I say the show will keep you cheering and grooving all the way home. It’s not just a gig, a concert or a show…to sum it up when you invite The Boatmen to jam it’s an EXPERIENCE! I highly recommend these guys for your listening and viewing pleasure. Expect to be entertained, maybe enlightened, laughter and certainly they are worth their weight in music gold. You better be on the lookout because The Boatmen ship is sailing and you better climb aboard mates!

The Boatmen are a recently formed acoustic 4 part harmony group at their base of long friendships. But after attending one of their shows you'll experience something totally different, a sound of music vets who have been playing for years. Drawing on a mix of influences, a vast original catalog, clever takes on covers is a sure shot to keep audiences entertained.
