Who are "The Shipwrecks?!"

Captain Eric and the Shipwrecks are one of the Northeast's premier cover bands. We are a 4 piece band consisting of musicians with extensive performance backgrounds and musical educations. We are a professional, energetic, fun, and finely tuned machine that cranks out hit after hit, medley after mashup, while ripping through all genres seamlessly. Nothing is out of our realm of expertise. We pride ourselves on our keen musical sensibility and diverse song catalog. Top 40,  the classics, funk, country, Hip Hop, alternative rock, etc. We play it all!  Our passion is making music and delighting audiences everywhere we go. Every set list is tailored to the crowd and what they are feeling that night. From the first note to the last, it's all about maximum effort, energy and fun!

​Bring your dancing shoes because you will be in for a wild ride! You're about to get SHIPWRECKED!!
