About the Band
Brothers in Piratical Arms; The Story of the Bawdy Boys
Starting out as 3 hard drinking sailors of fortune, JW, Jeremiah and Doc Jameson found killing time at port while drunk was more lucrative if they put played a few tunes for passerbys. Thus, The Bawdy Boys were made. If you catch them at port, they’ll sing you a song, tell you some filthy stories about life at sea and even lift a pint with you (so long as you’re buying). Stories about the Irish Immigrants journey to the Americas, sea shanties, work songs, drinking songs, and rebel tunes. All with a big helping of ridiculous boozed up comedy. Be sure to check them out at a port near you.
JW Morgan – Boatswain; Vocals, Hamonica, Jembe
Like the other members of The Bawdy Boys, little is known of JW’s past. HIs father set sail after JW’s birth, leaving his mother to fend for herself. Weened on Jameson and Guinness, JW’s appetite for libations caused his accidental enlistment to the British Navy as a privateer on the HMS Gale. After years of shipping supplies across the vast waters, mutiny broke out and HMS Gale landed hard on the Canadian coast. The new captain ordered a new fleet be commissioned and the crew set sail on the Detroit River, raising hell and pirating goods from both sides of the river. JW’s brothers, Jeremiah and Jamison found their way to the crew, were given their own ships. The rest has yet to be written.
