The Bilge Pumps are a pirate music group who specialize in performances that combine nautical songs, sea shanties, and Celtic music with a huge dose of silly comedy.

The group performs larger than life in their pirate outfits with a variety of instruments backing up their bellowing voices. They have been in demand all over the country for their goofy stage antics as they take nautical music and add their own spin on it.

The Pride of Bedlam is Houston’s preeminent pirate band and has been entertaining nautical music lovers since 2007. They were recently awarded “Favorite Band” in the 2016 International Pirate Awards. Their repertoire consists of original pirate music, traditional sea shanties, drinking songs, with a bit of rock sensibilities.
