Overview

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.

Wanted to see a local music show when in Rocky Harbour and this was the highest recommended one. The show itself was fantastic! It starts a bit slow, especially if you're not familiar with folk music, but the group dedicates some time to get the...More

Unfortunately to see the show you MUST be there 2 1/2 hours before the 8pm show to secure a seat even though you pay in advance. Makes for an uncomfortable night and takes away from the show. It's a bit pricey for local talent. The...More

These musicians are gifted entertainers. They carry you away with the wonderful music, while giving a lively, running commentary on the history and culture of Newfoundland.

I was skeptical of this entertainment because I dislike corny humour. I could not have been more mislead by my first impression; the show was fantastic. It seems all the info centres endorse this bunch of talented men and you won't be disappointed by the...More

These guys have been together for years, and it shows - a nice act featuring a good mix of old favourites and some you won't have heard before. It's a little overamplified for the size of the room, especially if you are in front (and...More

The entertainment here is top notch. The group does a great job of playing and promoting Newfoundland music. They welcomed everyone from all over the world and did it in an entertaining and often humourous way. The act is 3 hours long and it goes...More

Our second round of drinks never did arrive. Overheard they were having staffing issues. Nice view. Average pub. Lousy atmosphere.
