Owner description: Filled with renditions of popular Newfoundland and Labrador songs and tunes, sprinkled with one-liners and wit and occasional display of culture, this group of five has become one of the most widely-attended acts in the whole province. Almost by accident, and practically overnight, the ANCHORS AWEIGH band has found its way onto the list of "things-to-do" for local residents and visitors alike.

“Best Fun Nights This August”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We spent one month in Rocky Harbour at a rental home and had invited guests at various times. With each group of our guests we went to see this fabulous, funny and entertaining show on four different occasions ! We laughed and sang along and still smile when thinking about those evenings!! We hope to return to Rocky Harbour next summer to relive those evenings with all the various talent wrapped up in a single show!

“Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The best music for the price anywhere. We laughed and enjoyed three hours of traditional Newfoundland music and humour. The 7 Old Ladies is a classic that we continue to sing at home. Five star!

“disappointed!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We booked at the Ocean View Motel just to be able to enjoy the show...but when we booked the room weeks before we werent told to get the tickets at that time..even though we told them that was our intentions...they are sold out 3-4 weeks in advance...so FYI...if you want to see them...make sure you get the tickets book ahead of time...heard it was a great show!!

“AN outrageously good time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We walked over to see the show as it was easy walking distance from our B&B.
The performance was such great fun in an intimate homey setting. Even shared our table with other tourists which made the waiting time go by in a flash. Great musicians and storytellers with an obvious love for their land. It was a full 3 hour show , and totally worth the $25 .
You should go early a d we were there 1.5 hours before and the place was filling up . Most of us ate the pub grub in the ocean view beforehand . Service was efficient and very pleasant but food was very low end quality. Heavy on the deep fried stuff. Chicken wings were dried out and hard to chew .
