Celebrate the 10th anniversary of Portland's Pirate Prom!
Hold fast and make ready, the Swashbuckler's Ball returns for a glorious 10th year! Join us for a grand night out for pirates, buccaneers and nautical miscreants of all stripes!
Featuring live entertainment from:
The Dread Crew of Oddwood
Folk metal band known for its pirate-themed music played exclusively on acoustic instruments. The band has dubbed this unique style as "Heavy Mahogany" by infusing the raw energy of heavy metal with Celtic folk music.
Coming Up Threes
CU3 plays much of the traditional Irish pub repertoire, filtered through rock and roll, Americana and country sensibilities, to give many of these tunes a fresh, new sound. The music tactfully varies from melodic, orchestral instrumentals to stylized acapella arrangements, mixed with up-tempo, fist raising Celtic pub tunes.
Biddy on the Bench
Portland's own bringing high-energy Irish rebel songs & shanties, lively session tunes, and mournful gaelic ballads.
A SwashBall favorite, Bergamot returns with a troupe of performers and their signature sultry nautical burlesque show.
Bilgerats & Pyrettes
Music to plunder by!!! This hot Portland based band re-invents the classic sea shanty with twists of genre and brilliant harmonies, capturing Blues, Celtic, Nordic, Latin, Calypso, Country and even a few forced men! The Bilgerats & Pyrettes will be playing exclusively during our VIP feast!
