Northern California's BEST and MOST INFAMOUS Celtic Pirate Rock band! Anchored in San Jose, California, O’Craven plunders all along the West Coast, from the sunny shores of southern California, to the cold waters of the pacific north west, and all points in between. Originally conceived in 2006, O'Craven was the first band to combine the genres of traditional Celtic music, Pirate sea shanties and Rock 'n' Roll, under the banner of Celtic, Pirate, Rock. Since then, others have come and gone but none can do it better, or have the reputation and long history of delivering such a exciting, unforgettable, one of a kind show, like no other out there!
Blaggards (no “the”, pronounced BLA’ GUARDS or BLA’ GHERDS, depending on where you’re from) formed July 2004 in Houston, Texas.
We play what we call Stout Irish Rock, traditional Irish music mixed with rock n’ roll, informed by everything from Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley to Thin Lizzy and Black Sabbath. Blaggards maintain a rigorous schedule, playing constantly throughout Texas and touring nationally several times a year. We’ve also toured Ireland every year since 2010.
The Bilge Pumps are a pirate music group based in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area who specialize in performances that combine nautical songs, sea shanties, and Celtic music with a huge (and we mean huge!) dose of silly comedy. These pirates have been in demand all over the country for their entertainingly goofy stage antics, their well blended voices, and their musical skill as they take everyone's favorite nautical and Celtic music and put their own particular spin on each one. Their show is crafted to pull each audience member in, encourage them to play along with their high-energy shenanigans, and have them leave with a smile on their face and a story to tell their friends.
