What we're about

We sing madrigals for the king by day! Pub songs for the hoi polloi by night! Love songs and sailor songs all the day long (with occasional children songs so we avoid the ARRR rating!)

Want to see us perform? Come see one of our shows!

Motley Tones Pirate Singing Meetup

Needs a location

It is PIRATE SEASON! Come have some maritime fun.

This meetup is a fun, interactive opportunity to experience live music on the third Thursday of the month. It is a combination pub sing and show which helps teach pub songs and sea shanties to the multitudes and to hone our performances as we start our 12th season. We will have a songbook again this year. We are outdoors when the weather permits, indoors otherwise. We will be in pirate gear, but you can come as you are!

The pirate sing is loosely run, but typically we have a board for requests, (to sing for the group, lead a song, or have us do something). We treat it as an open rehearsal so we may also work on our numbers for an upcoming festival or try some new songs on an audience. Everyone can listen, join in, offer a song, or just drink one or more of the $5-6 beers fresh out of the brewing tanks.

Our music is a mix of a capella and accompanied music; we sing a mix of madrigals, pub songs, love songs, sing-along pub songs, sailor songs, drinking songs, and even some children's songs, just to balance things out.

Agenda
• Business and News (5-10 min)
• Set Discussion (5 min)
• Make Music (1 hr 15)
• Send String Tone home (5 min)
• Make Music (25 min)

Come join us. We have fun.
