About Overboard

Founded in the spring of 2006 by current director Nicholas Girard, Overboard is a male a cappella group from Boston, MA. Although Overboard’s repertoire consists primarily of contemporary pop/rock songs, including covers from such artists as Rascall Flatts, Stevie Wonder and The Beatles, the group remains true to its a cappella roots and continues to perform classic selections such as “Blue Moon,” “In The Still of the Night” and “Stand By Me.”

First conceived as a street performance group intent on entertaining audiences around coastal New England during the summer months, Overboard has come a long way in a short time. The group’s first album, Shipwrecked, was recorded in Nick’s living room and was released during that first summer. Shipwrecked was distributed during frequent busking stops in Newburyport, MA; Freeport, ME and Burlington, VT, as well as around the group’s hometown of Boston.

On the heels of that successful first season, Overboard decided to continue performing together on a more permanent basis. In 2007, the group began recording its second album, Stranded, which was released that May. To promote Stranded, the group toured throughout New England, performing at a variety of private, corporate and community events, including at American Idol Camp, a performing arts camp organized by the producers of the popular TV show. Overboard’s strong musicianship, energetic set and enthusiastic attitudes have made the group a popular act for audiences of all ages.
