Who Are The Musical Blades?

Since the turn of the century, a fearless band of misfit rogues has been terrorizing and delighting the Midwest with a unique blend of hilarity and harmonies. Since 2000, The Musical Blades have brought their unique brand of “renaissance rock show” to countless renaissance festivals and clubs across the United States.

 

Renaissance Rock Show!

With soaring harmonies, rocking mug-bangers, and side-splitting comedy, the Musical Blades have bring something for everyone. Offering a range of musical styles from pub chant-alongs, to rowdy folk-rock favorites and tear-jerking sea ballads, this pirate crew plunders the hearts of audiences wherever they go. The Blades are equally at home with acoustics and hand drums as they are with electric guitars and a full drum kit.

 

Bladed Beginnings

The Musical Blades began humbly as a two-man sword fighting act with hardly a note between them. After more than a decade of refining and evolving, their music has now been enjoyed across the country and abroad.

 

Award-Winning Pirates

The Musical Blades have recorded a dozen full-length studio albums showcasing their unique approach to folk, celtic, and straight-up hard rock. Three recent albums have been honored with national awards:

  • Live at VooDoo Lounge - 2016 Renaissance Magazine Album of the Year
  • Pieces of Eight & Treasures of Old - 2014 Renaissance Podast Best New CD / 2nd Place Best New CD, 2014 Renaissance Magazine
  • Up The Ante - 2013 Renaissance Magazine Best New CD

The Musical Blades’s stage show has also been nationally recognized several times over. Renaissance Magazine names The Musical Blades Best Comedy Musical Show each year from 2013-2016.

 

Pirates Of Legend

In 2015, The Musical Blades were given a truly unique honor. They were named one of Renaissance Magazine’s Top 100 Faire Acts of All Time!

 

A Pirate's Journey Continues

The Musical Blades continue onward. Growing into new fairs, new club performances, and even new continents, the Blades are constantly on the hunt for new locations to spread their unique brand of piracy.
