Sail away with Will Dailey

, Staff

On Sunday, Will Dailey will jump aboard the Provincetown II as part of the Boston Rock and Soul Festival. The afternoon cruise, which is part of the Rock and Blues Concert Cruises series, will feature fellow local standouts Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents, Tim Gearan, Dennis Brennan, Jesse Dee, Roy Sludge, Love in Stockholm, Christian McNeill & Sea Monsters and more.

Will Dailey & The Rivals continue to tour in support of the band’s 2011 self-titled album. Released last November, Dailey’s third full-length studio album and first with Universal Republic Records follows 2010’s Torrent, Volumes 1 & 2. It features lead single “Counting on Karma”.

With that in mind, we thought we’d catch up with Will for a fun interview to discuss his appearance on the concert cruise.

Boston Music Spotlight (BMS): Have you ever played on a boat before?

Will Dailey (WD): I have. A couple times. I love it. It takes a few songs to get my balance because I tend to move around a lot on stage. Sometimes when I leave the ground the ground has moved by the time I come back down. That is an adjustment but a wild one I embrace.

BMS: What type of boat would you have and what would it’s name be?

WD: Catamarn. Either “dos pl├ítanos” or “The Costner”.

BMS: Okay, so you are sailor, what’s your go-to sea shanty?

WD: “The Ocean” by Led Zeppelin

BMS: You are stranded at sea with one album – what is it and why?

WD: Damn it! I am so angry with myself for not bringing my ipod and only bringing this copy of After The Goldrush because it’s beautiful and it helps me sleep.

BMS: What can you expect from your set on the upcoming concert cruise?

WD: A harmonious family of some of Boston’s finest. The opposite of mutiny.

Will Dailey will perform at the Boston Rock & Soul festival aboard the Provincetown II on Sunday, July 29 as part of the Rock & Blues Concert Cruises series. The ship boards at 2 p.m. and departs at 3 p.m. from the World Trade Center Pier in the Seaport District. Tickets for the 21+ event are $25 in advance or $30 on the day of the show.
