Postmodern Pirates will play their first show on Groundhogs Day (Feb 2) at Secret Society Ballroom in Portland.
I’ve finally gathered all of the forces for a new band! It’s not a pirate band — but it’s also not not a pirate band. Postmodern Pirates will feature a two-piece horn section performing originals and a few covers in a ska-ish format.
Ever since Captain Bogg & Salty wound down about 8 years ago I’ve been itching to get out and play live again. The final nudge was performing a set of Oingo Boingo covers last fall with Boingo bassist John Avila and a talented group of Portland musicians. I was inspired by John’s energy and graciousness. At 59 he rocked harder than anyone I know, and he’s incredibly humble and nice. It made me want to get out there and play again, and to treat others with the same generosity he showed me and my band.
