The Crossjacks, Tennessee's premier themed entertainment act, is available to hire for your next entertainment event! Performing at pirate festivals and medieval/Renaissance faires throughout the South Atlantic and Mid South states, this acoustic trio serves up an eclectic variety of sea shanties, Irish/Celtic folk, old time fiddle music, and other festival favorites. The Crossjacks also performs at smaller venues such as pubs and parks, and is available for private parties (corporate events, promotions, birthday parties, etc.).
What to Expect
We perform an eclectic variety of sea shanties, ballads and folk songs from various cultures, including popular festival favorites. Our act incorporates maritime/pirate history, tall tales, ghost stories, and lots of fun and surprises! We make it a point to interact with our audiences, making them a part of the show and transporting them to a bygone era of adventure and romance.
We work with crowds of all ages and sizes, and tailor each show to our particular audience. We can provide appropriate entertainment for a child's themed birthday party as well as the bawdiest tavern in town.
And of course we perform every show in full period costume, and remain in character throughout your entire event!
Additional Booking Notes
As well as performing on-stage, we can also act off-stage as strolling minstrels, providing a more intimate and informal experience to your patrons and guests.
