Still working on that hot first release.



Founded in 2007, The Boat Times are three friends (Dan Gerbarg, Barry Stone and Matthew Coursen) who live and play music in Los Angeles. Short and sweet, their songs combine catchy melodies, tight harmonies and driving instrumentation with thoughtful and uplifting lyrics. With Dan and Barry sharing lead vocal and songwriting duties, The Boat Times create a unique perspective of late 50's rock n' roll as seen from the start of the millennium. With the benefit of decades of music since the birth of rock n' roll, The Boat Times have drawn on folk, the blues, alternative and even country to give a new voice to the music they all enjoy so much.

It was under the roof of Hollywood's famous Cherokee Studios, once home to legends from Frank Sinatra to The Four Tops to The Who, where audio engineers Dan and Barry began writing the songs that would give rise to The Boat Times. However, being a duo was not what they had in mind and knew that another guitar player was needed to bring the songs to life. Enter Matthew, lead guitarist and long-time friend of Barry from their home-state of Ohio. After moving out west in early 2008, it was clear that Matthew and his guitar were precisely what the group needed, instantly meshing with and complimenting the sound of The Boat Times.

With this key piece of the puzzle in place, The Boat Times are focused on the future: actively gigging around LA, making new fans (and friends) and working on their debut EP that will be out by the end of this year.
