Bring the Pirate Guys to your gig

With the recent relocation of the Chumbucket clan to St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, the Pirate Guys' availability for free appearance is, shall we say, limited. Day jobs permitting, the guys are available for a limited number of paid gigs, assuming travel and lodging are covered. Contact Mad Sally with inquiries.

For local (Oregon/Washington) events, contact Cap'n Slappy.

The closer it gets to September 19th each year, the faster the calendar fills up, so contact us early!
