The Rogues survived the Florida heat and humidity and made a big splash with our first appearance at the Boynton Beach Haunted Pirate Festival and Mermaid Splash on October 21-22. Lots of music, dancing and a great cast and crew. What a great bunch of people, and hey, it's Florida. It was wonderful seeing our old friends from when we played the Florida Renaissance Festival and getting to work with some of those same acts again. Bagpipes, sun and humidity don't mix very well, and we didn't have any shade on the stage all weekend, but pipes and pipers managed to pull off great shows despite the sun and heat, and we all came back with sunburns, but we all needed a little color so that's OK. If you're anywhere near Boynton Beach and missed it this year, make sure to catch it next year. We hope to be back, and best of all, it's a free show!
Look for The Rogues next at Dickens on the Strand in Galveston, TX on December 2-3. It's a great Victorian era-themed show with amazing costumes and lots of great entertainment. The parades are exceptional too. When we're not playing stage shows, you'll find us playing inside of Murphy's Pub on 22nd St. (of course) or on the street in front the pub. This is one of our favorite shows of the year, and we've done it almost every year of the band's existence. There are costume contests and discounts for admission if you wear a costume. You can get the pertinent info on our calendar page. Come down and have a pint with us and get the Christmas season started off right!
