The roving Scallywags


What do you get when you combine Irish folk music, sea shanties, electric guitars, and a pinch of attitude?  You get The Roving Scallywags.  The Band formed in the late summer of 2014 in Wisconsin's Fox Valley and has hit the ground running to bring their high energy live show to the world.  From the fast punk feel of "Drunken Sailor," to the beautiful atmosphere of "The Fisherman's Song" there truly a little something for everyone.  So if you are looking for good sing along, dance along, beer drinking music; You have come to the right place my friends.

About Me:

I have spent over half of my life playing music, writing songs, and entertaining people. Besides founding and performing with The Roving Scallywags I quite regularly play solo acoustic shows. These shows consist of songs I have written over the years (including songs from the Roving Scallywags), Irish songs, Sea Shanties, and popular songs from different generations of musicians. I love performing for people and hope to give every show it's very unique feel and breath of life. So if you are looking for some music for your establishment or special event but don't have the space for a full band, maybe a singer/songwriter is a good way to go.
