It’s been a busy day and I can barely think. So rather than get all clever, I’ll just post this video of the Musical Blades in concert :)

Musical Blades combine powers with Jolly Rogers…

Posted at 12:25 pm in News

What’s that, you say? Musical Blades AND the Jolly Rogers performing together? Can your pirate brain handle this much awesomeness?

Check their website for full details of the Feb. 13th concert taking place in Kansas City (which strangely, is in Missouri.) Score another one for the poor midwestern pirates this cold winter!

Piratically Incorrect

Posted at 12:50 pm in Music

Rating: ★★★★☆
Buy the CD
Genre: Contemporary Pirate Folk and Alternative.
Rating: PG-13 (with a little bit of R)
Target Audience: 20-somthings and up

Review: A Knife to Remember

Posted at 5:31 pm in Music

Rating: ★★★☆☆
The Musical Blades

Genre: A Capella Festival Songs
Rating: PG-13
Target Audience: Late teens to early retirement

In my humble opinion, traditional-style pirate bands have a unique chanllenge set before them. Being as much of their music is performed live on the festival circuit, they must cater to the live-action, beer-guzzling, turkey-leg-waving-to-the-music crowd. This is what I consider “renny” music – quasi-baudi, slightly goofy, and sometimes requiring audience participation. And this is all fine until this same band enters the recording studio, where much of this live performance just doesn’t translate well to the digital medium… [read more »]
