Land of Ozz added to Yachtstock Lineup


LandOfOzzLogoBreaking News!  In demand Ozzy Osbourne tribute band Land of Ozz  has been added to the Yachstock 2016 RiverJam lineup. 

The Land Of OZZ is the closest thing to Ozzy Osbourne in his prime years that you will see and hear anywhere in the world, PERIOD! ​Listen to the band's demo recordings and hear it for yourself.

​"Take a 17 yr old guitar prodigy and his Berklee College of Music trained Father to handle the six string duties, add a founder of "Get the Led Out" on bass guitar, the Phila area's top rock drummer and Keyboard player, and then add the best "Ozzy" since Ozzy and you have The Land of Ozz! "

At the center of The Land of OZZ is STEPHEN DESKO and his amazing ability to recreate the look and sound of OZZY. Stephen will make you think you are hearing and seeing OZZY live in the 80s and 90s. His vocal range, tone and appearance is so close to OZZY, it really is incredible. Sit back and and enjoy the ride with the The Land of OZZ's (Diary Of A) Madman at the wheel.

 Land of OZZ is anchoring the West End Main Stage at our very own Yachtstock RiverJam. Their headliner performance will be capped off with the Tinicum Township Patriotic 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, Team Ryan and Team Ella.

Stay tuned for more exciting news and the full lineups for the West End Boat Club, The Corinthian, and Governor Printz Park. 


Yachstock RiverJam is a music festival event for charity located in Essington, PA, just 5 minutes from I95, just south of Philadelphia.
