One fateful afternoon, Huey Lewis & The News came blasting through the house speakers at Arlene’s Grocery, legendary guitarist Andrew Lynch and iconic drummer Johnny Coryn realized that they too, wanted a new drug. The summer breeze blowing through the jasmine of the Lower East Side delivered a clear message: Stanton Street needed a Yacht Rock band. With a catalog of tunes that makes your dreams come true, The Seawards will take your heart, but you won’t feel it — you’ll be too busy cuttin’ footloose! Let’s get yachty! Catch The Seawards debut their tunes on the water.
Huddled around an AM radio on the fire escape of a fifth floor walk-up, native New Yorkers Ariel Hammerstein and Yakob Veivelman grew up obsessed with the smooth sounds of the post-disco, pre-new wave era. Devoted to the halcyon days of pop music, it became their life's mission to bring the hits and lesser-known classics of the late '70s and early '80s back to the masses. Their catalog is a virtual A to Z of the Billboard charts from three and half decades past: Ambrosia to Xanadu, all interpreted through the prism of the New York Jewish experience.
The hebrew duo have recently grown to a trio with the addition of Irish Jewish Tenor, Chaim O’Shwartz. As always they will be backed by a group of the NYC’s finest semitic sidemen known as The Full Minyan Band, featuring musicians from Christopher Cross, Suzanne Vega, Joe Jackson, The Waterboys, Rod Stewart, and Matchbox 20.
