COMING UP THREES
Catch CU3 for a high-energy, Celtic-inspired, pint-raising set on the Quarterdeck Stage! Coming Up Threes is a six-piece Irish pub band that formed in Portland, OR in early 2012. The band features Bill Tollner on guitar and lead vocals; multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bauer on penny whistle, banjo, bodhran, percussion, and vocals; Naoyuki Ochiai on fiddle, accordion, and vocals; Chad Marks-Fife on Fiddle, Mandolin, and vocals; Charlie Norris on bass; and David Fender on drums.
BIDDY ON THE BENCH
Portland's own bringing Irish rebel songs & shanties, lively session tunes, and mournful Gaelic ballads. The Biddys are a favorite Belowdecks mainstay!
A SwashBall favorite, Bergamot returns with a troupe of performers and their signature sultry nautical burlesque show. Don't miss their performance on the Quarterdeck Stage!
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 FEISTY FELINES
We're excited to have this troupe return for their second year at SwashBall!
With more entertainment to be announced!
Delve belowdecks and make your way to the swampy confines of The Bayou, but beware of cursed loot in The Treasury. Spend yer hard-earned coin in the Orcs Belly Inn.
There are new bars! Can you find them all? Don't worry, we'll give you a map!
Dance the night away at the Quarterdeck Stage, hoist your tankard in The Treasury, and sip a sultry pint in The Bayou.
Custom cocktails themed from our mates at Cruzan Rum and BG Reynolds especially for the evening. Plus a variety of ale, cider, and more!
An expanded row of piratical merchants!
