June Chantey Sing

Whateverly BrosThe Whateverly Brothers will lead the June Chantey Sing!  The madcap trio of Dan Roberts, Chris Glanister, and Rob Kneisler turn sea songs on edge with their well-crafted harmonies of traditional chanteys and contemporary arrangements. You never know what kind of rollicking ruckus the Bros will dredge up! And they will surely crank up the fun level to “high” at the June Chantey Sing.
