MN Jack Sparrow

Why book MN Jack Sparrow?

Ahoy mates. So, looking for some pirate fun with dear ol' Captain Jack eh? Well you've come to the right place then! I've had over 8 years as Minnesota Captain Jack Sparrow...partying, celebrating, and helping many "crews" capture that special moment. Be it a Pirate themed birthday for your Lil' Powder Monkey, a celebration, maybe a festival or perhaps trying to catch the crowds attention, I can create smiles and memories that will be cherished for years. I also know more than me fare share of pirate history and facts (not to mention my collection of artifacts) that I use to educate . Be sure to get your message in a bottle asap so as I can put in a heading to your port... savvy?!?

Ahoy! Me 50th Pirate Party at Psycho Suzi's-Mpls, MN

Aye me Hearty Mateys! Never had such an awesome adventure with the Captain Jack and Wench Nicky! Made me Party one that all will never forget and will be talking about for years to come! All me crew mates-he made feel so special and entertained with such pure talent and enthusiasm! All talked like a Pirate-Arrr-and made me Party a blast of history! The Place I chose was the pure atsmophere of a Pirate-with Tiki torches lit-waterfall inside, and Huge stone Moji Heads, out on the Deck overlooking the Grand Mississippi River! The Captain made sure all got wonderful attention, pictures, and poses of grand delight! All should have an ADULT PARTY-as I had planned! Made me feel so young at heart-and a Special Pirate inside! Thanks-me Hearty Matey-for making me 50th so GRAND!

Outstanding Performers--Highly Recommended!!

We hired Capt. Jack & Wench Nicky for an in-store appearance/camera op On Dec. 17, '11 in our Gull Island Store, Hutchinson Mall. Their appearances drove traffic (customers!) to our store in droves and added another level of excitement during the Christmas season. We highly recommend both 'Jack' & 'Nicky' to add an element of fun and excitement to your get-together (business or personal). We're still receiving positive feedback from our customers!!

Best kids birthday party ever!

Everyone at the party had a fantastic time. The parents that helped said MN Jack was the best they had seen. The parents that didn't get to experience the party heard about it from their children for days after. MN Jack made sure to include everyone and did a fabulous job making every child (and adult) feel at ease and have a great time during all the activities. He was very adaptable to different things that came up, you could tell everything was improvised with the children/adults involved.

We love Captain Jack Sparrow

Yesterday was the best birthday party we have attended ever. MN Jack Sparrow involved everyone in the fun, even the little little ones. Interactive, funny and entertaining! I would definitely have him back for another party! His assistant, Nicky is very kind and considerate as well :)

20 Kids (4-15 yr. olds) + Captain Jack = Amazing fun!

Captain Jack and his crew entertained and thrilled the kids, and parents both. He looks exactly like Captain Jack but his ability to captivate even the most timid guest was a thrill to watch. The crew members were very helpful, professional and took great pics.

All around great entertainer for all ages.

MN Jack Sparrow was the highlight of our party. His looks and manners as Jack Sparrow are wonderful. He as well as his crew, were very professional and approperiate for all ages. They were able to keep everyone entertained for the entire evening. The games, pirate history, and fun photo opportunities throughout the evening made this 50th birthday party for my husband the best ever. Everyone just can't stop talking about the captain and his crew, and how much they all enjoyed the party. The Halloween Pirate adventure in Northfield that he hosts and is open to the public is awesome, a must see for families, and kids of all ages.

He's Hollywood Quality!!!

We hired him for our daughter's 5th birthday and I have to tell you that he is so amazing that the kids are still talking about it AND have become such fans of Captain Jack Sparrow in life. He handled the crew of 22 plus kids so well. He is amazing with the kids and pays great attention to the guest pirate of honor. He is quite the charmer and his beautiful "wench" makes sure you get the memories to keep and that you don't miss out on the fun. They provide so much education to the kids as well. It's amazing the fun and learning involved. They also made every aspect of the party became a pirate way of life. The cake was cut with a sword, who would have even thought of that.....Captain Jack did. We hit a treasure getting him. Worth every gold debloom we paid and then some. Before you know it he will be as famous at that Johnny Depp person. Better book him now!!!!
