Hello! We're Bay Station aka, Kwame Copeland and Deborah Crooks. We're long-time musician/songwriters who are combining our love of sailing and music to create a series of videos we call Love the Bay. Thanks for considering becoming a patron!
We first combined our love of sailing and music in a short tour around the bay in 2017, and in 2018 developed the concept into two multi-day tours, hosting more than two dozen musical guests.We had such a great time sailing and hosting our fellow musicians on board our boat Espresso in 2018, we were inspired to expand our nautical and musical adventure into a monthly series of episodes. Each month, we host a special music or literary guest and film our onboard performance and conversation,  then produce and release the video a few weeks later. Already in 2019, we've released three Love the Bay episodes and our busy editing episodes 4 and 5! You can see the YouTube playlist here: bit.ly/ltb2019video
Based in Alameda, California, we founded Bay Station Band in 2014 to record and perform our original Americana music. Together, we’ve since released three CDs of original music, toured the country, received radio airplay and music placements and perform regularly with our full band throughout California.
In 2019, our monthly series is based on and around the Alameda/Oakland Estuary. Each sail culminates with an onboard performance recorded for a video log. 
  You can see our first episode here:

Twice a year, during the spring and fall, we'll present a multi-day Love the Bay Tour, sailing to ports of call around the San Francisco Bay, over-nighting at guest berths, and hosting 3-5 guest artists at each stop for onboard concerts and conversation. Each performance will be filmed and recorded for the vlog. You can see what we did in 2018 here:
