Louder than a broadside volley of Cannon Fire, Captain Dan & The Scurvy Crew have hit the nation like a hurricane. Never before has the Golden Age of Piracy and Hip-Hop been blended so seamlessly. Their debut album, “Authentic Pirate Hip Hop” was released in 2006, satisfying a growing need for pirate rap in the nerdcore and pirate communities. Their second release, “Rimes of the Hip Hop Mariners,” met and exceeded many fan expectations, proving that the group was more than a simple novelty act. Their albums are currently the #1 and #2 best selling nerdcore albums on the critically lauded indie musician site, cdbaby.com. Their next album, “From the Seas to the Streets” was release January 2009 and is the most epic collection of pirate hip hop ever produced!
The group has been featured on radio shows such as Los Angeles’ KROQ Kevin & Bean show, Bubba the Love Sponge, and WZZR’s Real Radio Nights & The Love Docs. The crew’s music and videos have shown up on the front pages of Comedy websites such as Drew Curtis’s Fark.com, Albinoblacksheep.com, somethingawful.com, and on the wired.com blogs. The group was also featured in Blender magazine in 2008!
The Scurvy Crew boasts the most notorious group of rapping pirates on earth! Led by their swashbuckling leader Captain Dan, the crew includes Quartermaster Sea Dawg, Gunner Scott Free, Navigator MC Treasure, Beat Master Azis, Boatswain Zealous1, and Captain Dan’s own arch nemesis Fred ‘Admirality’ Crawley!
