Annual Fall Event Ahoy, Y’all!
The Arrrk presents our 12th Annual Fall Fundraiser on Saturday, October 18th!
A Hillbilly Pirate Ball - featuring Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams
Of the band, All Music Guide says: “Playing an utterly unique blend of rock & roll, folk, and quirky Americana, Gandalf Murphy & the Slambovian Circus of Dreams have been called "the hillbilly Pink Floyd," which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, the Band, Neil Diamond, and maybe even some Frank Zappa as well. The group developed a quirky, versatile, and good-humored show that worked as well in small folk clubs as it did on large festival stages, and has built a large and loyal fan following.”
We reckon all ye swashbucklers and ‘billies will want to come in full hillbilly-pirate regalia. So start plannin’ yer costumes now, mateys!
