WALDOBORO — The Waldo brings The Docksiders, Las Vegas based ‘Yacht Rockers,’ to Midcoast Maine on Friday, July 28, at 8 p.m.
Imagine that it's 1981 and you’re cruising the shores with your friends. Bikinis are fluorescent, polo collars are popped, and boat shoes are rocked sockless. In the background, your booming sound system is playing the soft-rock sounds of Michael McDonald, Olivia Newton-John, Hall & Oates, Christopher Cross and Air Supply. The Docksiders are made up of veteran musicians originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and now based in Las Vegas, Nevada – led by 3-time Grammy nominee, Kevin Sucher.
“Their unique tribute act of your favorite soft rock songs of the 70s and 80s – now defined as Yacht Rock – have been entertaining hundreds of thousands of people for years - and audiences are only getting bigger,” said the Waldo, in a news release. “The Docksiders – hit song after hit song, costume changes, and visual production, is only topped by their world-class performance. The Docksiders – America’s Favorite Yacht Rock Band”
Concessions, including beer and wine for those 21+ will be available at the show. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 in advance online and $40 in person the day of the show. A limited number of front row seats are available.
Having reopened in 2021 after decades of closure, this vibrant, beautifully restored 1936 theatre serves once more as a local cultural hub offering theater, music, film, and a wide array of performing arts to our Midcoast community. Through programs like youth arts education, after-school activities, master classes, workshops, and other events, The Waldo seeks to expand arts participation for residents of all ages and enhance the quality of life for all.
