Breaking News! Rising Country recording artist Amanda Watkins has been added to the Yachstock RiverJam lineup. Amanda is a rising star who toured extensively with her former band, Miss Willie Brown, and is currently preparing her debut solo recording. Check out her single "If I Was Over You" -- a stunning duet with legendary singer/songwriter Jamey Johnson.
Miss Watkins is already a seasoned performer, having performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Grand Ole Opry, touring nationally with Miss Willie Brown, and launching her solo career opening for Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, and other Nashville greats.
Amanda's star is rising fast. She is slated to play the main stage at a number of events this summer alongside stars like Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, and Sara Evans.
But most important, Amanda Watkins is coming to Delaware County, anchoring the West End Main Stage at our very own Yachtstock RiverJam. Her headliner performance will be capped off with the Tinicum Township 4th of July Fireworks right on the RiverJam music festival grounds!
This is an event you will not want to miss with Great Music, Great Fun, and a Greater Cause as we support local charities, Shriners Hospitals Philadelphia, Kisses for Kyle and Team Kyanna.
Stay tuned for more exciting news and the full lineups for the West End Boat Club, The Corinthian, and The Deck at Harbor Pointe.
Yachstock RiverJam is a music festival event for charity located in Essington, PA, just 5 minutes from I95, just south of Philadelphia.

The RiverJam is Yachtstock's annual outdoor concert event with proceeds benefitting charity. Please plan to join us on Saturday, June 25th, 2016, as we celebrate our 18th year. Last year's event was a huge success and we are expecting even better things in 2016.
Fireworks, 30 + Bands & More!
A major expansion is coming this year, as Tinicum Township has announced their intentions to work closely with us, offering logistical support, use of historic Governor Printz Park and most important -- they are moving their 4th of July Fireworks to our event! Just as exciting is the Corinthian Yacht Club as participating venues (including bands and entertainment) that will allow us to deliver over 30 bands on 3 stages.
YachtStock Inc. is a 501c3 charitable organization that provides help for local families and Shriners Hospitals for Children of Philadelphia. Over the years we have raised tens of thousands of dollars for these struggling children through our charity events throughout the year.
In 2016 Yachtstock is again partnering with Shriner's Hospital with proceeds benefitting their important work. We will also continue our longstanding tradition of selecting a local beneficiary. Last year our local beneficiary was the Kyanna Harris family which proved to be one our most satisifying partnerships to date as Noah received a heart transplant on his birthday!
The 2016 local beneficiary will be announced shortly.
If you know of a child in our community you wish to nominate for future consideration please contact us.
2016 Yachtstock RiverJam:
Saturday June 25th, 2016 12 PM - 10 PM
Rain Date: Sunday June 25th
RiverJam Fireworks at approximately 9:00 PM
(rain date for fireworks next evening, Sunday June 28th)

Yachtstock RiverJam 2014 A Huge Success
Yachtstock is pleased to announce that a total of $22,000 was raised for Shriners Hospitals Philadelphia Unit and Heart 4 Noah (our local beneficiary - the Noah Lamey family). Board member Steve Kurtz lead the official presentation to the Noah Lamey family that included a poster of the film Invincible signed by Eagles star Vince Papale and a check from Yachtstock. Mr. Kurtz told Noah at the presentation, "you are truly invincible."
Noah's father expressed his family's deep thanks to the Yachtstock board and volunteers for their efforts and stated that his family looked forward to the opportunity to support charitable work in the future, and give back to the community.
RiverJam 2014 was a record setting year. We were blessed with perfect weather, great performances from our artists, and tremendous crowds. It was a day that truly lived up to our 2014 motto of "Great Music, Great Fun, and a Greater Cause."
Yachststock wishes to thank the many volunteers and sponsors who helped make this perhaps our greatest event ever. We can't wait to do it again in 2015!

Attention all singer songwriters! Yachtstock RiverJam is holding two (or three) mini-set slots open for our festival June 28th in Essington, Pennsylvania (just south of Phila. airport) for yet to be named local artists. Could that be you performing up on the Riverview stage?
Here are the details:
Contest Entry Simply email us at the link below a video of you performing an acoustic version of an original song that you wrote. By "acoustic" we mean preferably just you on guitar, mandolin, piano, accordion (or whatever is your thing) singing your song. Yes, it must be an original tune you wrote (or co-wrote). This contest is open to all, except winners of the 2013 competition. If you entered last year and did not win you are welcome to enter again.
Video Your video should be on YouTube/Vimeo with reasonable audio quality. It definitely does not need to be a broadcast quality music video (an iPhone can do a surprisingly good job!) but should showcase your awesome singing, song, and groovy personality.
What Happens Next? We will post the videos of all entries deemed competition worthy by our judges on our Facebook page (deadline for submittal is Sunday, June 22). We will then announce up to 5 finalists on our Facebook page Monday, June 23rd and publish a Facebook poll to determine the most popular videos. At least two (maybe three) of the top vote getters will be offered the opportunity to perform a mini set (acoustic) at Yachtstock RiverJam June 28th. Winners will also receive 2 complimentary passes to the event and can set up a small table to sell their music and merch. The winner's videos will also be posted on our website and you will receive consideration for a reserved performance slot for next year's Riverjam as well!
Rules This is a charity event for a worthy cause. This is not a paying gig. We reserve the right to change the rules at our own discretion or uninvite those who behave badly. Our judges will be looking for a) Talent of course! b) Contestants living in the Greater Philadelphia Region (as our goal it to sell tickets and raise as much money as possible for charity) and c) Entrants that generate a lot of activity on our FB page and on their own social networks (for same reason as in "b").
For those about to rock we salute you!
Ok, ready to get rolling?
