We also will have two pre-film fest musical acts for you to enjoy:
- Friday Night: Lee Murdock & the Dock Wallopers, Lee Murdock, known as the Great Lakes Troubadour, will be joined by the vocal chorus, “The Dock Wallopers” – Steve Lindenmeyer, Bill Pufahl, and Richard Shields, for some big-shanty sea music to kick off the evening. The band’s name is derived from the men unloading lumber schooners while in lake-towns years ago. The timbers repeatedly hitting the docks created such a racket in port, that these folks were referred to as “dock wallopers” ever since. Enjoy Lee and the “Dock Wallopers” while they create quite a musical “racket”, singing some of the most popular songs of sailors from the Great Lakes and beyond.
- Saturday Night: Pup Morse the Singing Cowboy.
Remember, OWU is the only consumer dive show where sales of all types of dive equipment and apparel are allowed.
