"If you have never had a chance to see the Blades perform, you don't know what you're missing. Was well worth the five hour drive from Oklahoma. High energy from start to finish played for almost 3 hours non stop. Crowd was on their feet dancing and singing along from start to finish. Vocals and harmonies are great" / "The band shined and exploded their talents all evening. Fantastic music and incredible energy. All the performers are wonderful, fun, kind and amazing people" / The Musical Blades concert totally was awesome. It was the party of the year and these guys put together a great set list." / "I have seen the Musical Blades perform several times and am never disappointed. This time around they were even better! The energy was just amazing!! New songs, a chance to mingle with the guys before and after the show, everything a fan could wish for!! Can't wait for their next show!" You can never beat a concert by the Musical Blades. It was well worth the money and the trip to Kansas City and would do it again in a heartbeat." / "Musical Blades were amazing. First time seeing them in a venue setting, but will definitely make the trip again" / "What an unforgettable night. Musical Blades are one of the most down to earth and friendly bands ever, and boy do they love their fans. The shows are packed with humor and jokes, as well as dynamics and beautiful music."

"I love the Musical Blades. I caught two of your shows at the KCRF
yesterday and was awestruck.
-Fan Club Member

One of, if not the best pirate bands! The Blades have a following that packs the house everywhere they appear. Not your typical Pirate band by any means!
-Brownville Renaissance Festival and Pirate Cruise

"I got to actually see the Musical Blades here at the OKRF in Muskogee, OK for the first time ever... We were lucky to have them even if it was only the first two weekends of our five weekend festival. We even got to preview one of the new songs, fabulous, you can't help but sing it out loud. They were so good we bought two CDs the first time we heard them..."

"Without a doubt, what you come to the Renaissance Festival for! The finest group of Pirates, featuring some of the best music you can find. The Blades are destined to be a legend in the Renaissance circle."
-Joplin, MO Renaissance Festival
