All five members of the Jolly Rogers are on the show today! We delve into the long running band’s epic pirate music career.
In this episode:
- The song that Disney stole from them
- The insanely cool gig in Krakow, Poland and the hidden history of sea chanteys in Poland.
- What it’s like to have written songs that are standards in the pirate genre
- Their “goofy” ethos and where it came from

Since I totally spaced out on putting a Jolly Rogers song in the episode… Sorry. Been traveling and sleep deprived… Here’s one of their more well known tracks, “Curvy Girls”.
Here’s their version of “The Derelict” that accidentally became “traditional” and was co-opted by Disney for Pirates of the Caribbean. (I wasn’t able to find a clip of its use in the film.)
Here’s a cool vintage clip of The Clancy Brothers as mentioned by the guys as an influence on their music and stage show.
And since they mentioned Bounding Main, here’s a tune from them too!
