Alchemy Tavern invites patrons to the swashbuckling days when pirates pillaged and partied across the waves, courtesy of a band of “scandalous scallywags from Kentucky” bringing riotous sea chanties from the days of Blackbeard. Drunk & Sailor returns to the Azalea City with their anachronistic rum-soaked pirate tunes.
Drunk & Sailor formed when Phillip McGuinness met Captain Amos at the 2005 Kentucky Renaissance Faire. Ten years later, the duo added Ampers Andrew’s “mandolin and kegs full of musical talent” to their scurvy crew. Since then, they have been entertaining landlubbers with their unique show.
In addition to traditional pirate songs such as “Barnacle Bill” and “All for Me Grog,” Drunk & Sailor will make old into new with original tracks from the group’s three albums. The crowd can expect a raucous musical experience, and are encouraged to wear pirate garb.
