“Very entertaining”
Review of Anchors Aweigh

Anchors Aweigh
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
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.

“Very entertaining”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

The guys put on an incredible evening of entertainment. We especially enjoyed the drummer's singing voice. Thought it was cool when they polled the audience to find out where people were from...and then sang a song by artists from that province, state or country.
Only negative was having to arrive at 6:30 to get a seat for an 8:00 show. It was a busy Friday night and we had some of the so-so pub food. It took a long time to take our order, and longer for food to arrive.

“Great fun, excellent value!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for 18 years. That only happens when the entertainers enjoy what they do and they are providing great entertainment. True on both accounts.

2.5 hours of great music, good stories and lots of laughter. Great value for $28/ticket

The pub really packs people in so get there early, have some good food and keep your seat for the 8:00 show.

Loved the show, very entertaining. Lots of laughs and good music and stories. The drummer was the captain of our fishing boat in Norris Point.

“A Great Night Out!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

This show is a great introduction to Newfoundland! The performers are so proud of their province it almost hurts! They perform a variety of Newfoundland songs, spiced up with inventive arrangements. They play well, use hilarious props, and the show just flies by. The only problem is the volume - sooo loud!

“Evening Entertainment”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

The MC in the group kept you entertained and laughing for the whole evening. The music and comedy was excellent. The only thing I dislked was the seating arrangements. It didn't start until 8 and we arrived at 6:30 and there was only 1 very small table with 2 people already seated. So if you go, make sure you are there early.
