EARL EYE & THE DRUNKEN SAILORS PIRATE BAND exist to entertain, educate and enlighten as we preserve the legacy of ordinary people, whose circumstances pressed them to lead extraordinary lives. We hope that the songs we sing and the stories we tell will inspire audiences of all ages to explore the past and find adventure in their own lives.
And we don't believe in "Just Playing Music."
We think that the show should be fun and theatrical!
Seafaring music is fun - and that's how it should be played! We are proud that among our number of skilled vocalists are several instruments associated with sailing (and even some that aren't) Our music features: Button-Accordion, Concertina, Guitar,
Ukulele, Flute, Whistles, Drums, Spoons, Wabash Washboard, Washtub Bass & More!
Our shows are perfect for any age range, including a wide range of music from old world work shanties performed in the traditional style, to upbeat interpretations of classic sea-songs, to modern & original seafaring music with a huge dose of silly comedy.
You’re all pirates headed out to sea and we have the music ye’ be needin’ to fly your Roger and revel in the free life. Welcome aboard!
