Five distinct personalities, five aesthetic inputs, five pirates with WAY too much time on their hands have worked together to create an original experience in piratical entertainment!
This, our third CD, is presently getting rave reviews. "We couldn't be happier with the outcome of this Fall 2008 release. Even non-pirate fans are giving kudo's to this CD".
The official lineup for the Musical Blades include...
Captain Patch: Albert Hall is a veteran of the sound stage and studio and has performed in venues throughout the Midwest for over 20 years. Albert began the Musical Blades show Fall 2000 and is the writer of nearly all Musical Blades songs and material.
Cutthroat Cookie: Jason Longberg has done work on both stage and television and has been doing medieval reenactment for over 12 years. Became a pirate Winter 2005. Besides helping out with the comedic writing Jason has become our quintessential bad boy.
Chuey: David Levin is a strong member of the group. David has more than pulled his own weight when he's around helping with comedic writing, impromptu situations, and musical feedback. David's strong voice and chaotic demeanor add much depth to the group. David's other entertainment obligation have included being the host of pub sing to KCRF and STLRF. He is also versed in stage combat.
Salty Peter Johnson: George Hunt. A published songwriter (BMI) and recording engineer. (Cypher Sound, KC). He tells us he’s very talented! He seems to like telling us how talented he is… He keeps dropping his guitar pick & making a big to-do over picking it up again. Can’t say that we quite get what his point is. But, he Rrr pretty Ok; so we think we’ll keep ‘im.
Panama: Clint Glidewell is the newest member, and a welcome addition to the Blades. A well established pirate in his own right, Clint, a veteran of stage and studio, brings to the group a unique song writing style and high harmonies.
