About Rockin’ Ron The Friendly Pirate

The Flying Pirate Circus

THE FLYING PIRATE CIRCUS was considered for a 2017 Best Children’s Album GRAMMY™!

Featured tracks:

“Shark in the Dark” is the monster hit on this this album – a song requested by kids and adults alike.
“Eight Pieces of Eight” has more than eight references to the number itself, with a bit of math added in.
“Without the R” shows what happens to some words when they lose the letter R.
“Oona Uni-hook” is about a pirate unicorn that realizes it is OK to be different.

Rockin’ Ron’s Message in Bottle

Spring 2019

Ahoy me Hearties! I have recently released a new video for Shark in the Dark featuring a skiing and flyboarding shark and pirate, check it out below.  Recording sessions continue for my fourth album – titled “Talk Like a Pirate” – at West Street Digital with Andre Maquera.

Meanwhile, Carrie Cook and I have been planning the album’s cover art. Late spring and summer bookings are starting to come in. So far, I have shows lined up in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Virginia, Connecticut and of course Vermont.

With my songs (most of them original), I encourage audience participation. This includes singing, cheering, body motions, and guessing games. Related historical and cultural subjects often come up. Schools, Libraries, and Festivals are my best venues. My strongest demographic is 3 – 7 year old girls and boys, but I also appeal to their older siblings, parents, and grandparents. I gear each performance to the composition of the audience. I pepper my patter with jokes for adults as well as kids. In fact, Seven Days (Vermont’s Arts & Entertainment Weekly) compared my approach to that of Shrek and Toy Story.

I sing to my own guitar accompaniment and to tracks from my stylistically diverse albums Give Me an RRR, Pirate PaRRRty, and The Flying Pirate Circus. I need access to electrical power and an area designated for the performance. I bring a speaker(s), a microphone, stands, a guitar, a banner, and pirate props (as space allows).  My average show is 45 minutes long – that length can be modified. I have coloring pages and other promotional materials. Me rates RRR reasonable.
