Raised on a steady diet of folk staples including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Joan Baez, rock and roll music such as The Who, The Beatles, REM, and The Eagles and classic country like Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Eddy Arnold, Sylvia Rose Novak grew up surrounded by music. As a teenager, Novak fell in love with grunge and pop-punk. You can hear subtle hints of bands like Jimmy Eat World and Pearl Jam in her current music.
Novak excelled at any instrument put in front of her, but has always considered herself a bassist above all. She started playing at the age of 12, taking jazz and rock lessons at the local guitar shop, and continued to play in various classes and programs through high school as well as in her friends’ bands. Throughout her adult life, she’s been a go-to-bassist in the Birmingham, AL music scene and fronts her band as her own bass player.
This year marks our 12th annual Concerts on the Dock and it is sure to live up to it’s longevity! As per every proceeding year we will continue to strive to bring our music loving community the freshest sounds available without sacrificing quality for quantity. Our mission is to bring all who attend the best in local, regional, and national acts they simply would not see anywhere else in town and provide those acts with a gracious built in audience hungry for the next big thing.
We can’t make this happen without you so bring friends, picnics, and pets on a leash to Huntsville’s most accessible concert series and join us under the water tower for eight weeks in the Spring and eight weeks in the Fall. Concerts on the Dock are always free to attend though we do charge $5 for parking on property. Please Carpool!
