"This band is the finest collection of reprobates, raconteurs, rapscallions and rakes it has been my pleasure to know. Their music will have you singing and drinking along in no time, their live performances will inspire you to MORE singing and drinking, and you can cozy up with them in bed for a rollicking good time (albeit in book form)."
"Before Jack Sparrow, there were the Pyrates Royale."
Laurie DeWitt, The Gazette
"From their zany beginnings as an improv comedy troupe to their unerring ability to keep audiences hooting in laughter, don't let the Pyrates Royale fool you! This merry band with their superb harmonies deliver top-notch musical entertainment with traditional music, sea shanties and English pub songs. A treat for the ears and the funny bones."
First Night Annapolis
"The Pyrates Royale are the kings and queens of innuendo and insinuation."
Christine Markel Lampe, No Quarter Given
"The singing is great, the presentation is awesome and the package is a hell of a lot of fun."
Tom Knapp, Rambles Magazine
"Just listened to the entire album. It’s fantastic! I felt like I was there. The downside was that is sounded so realistic, I could almost smell you guys. Other than that, nice work!"
"I catch myself singing their songs decades after I last saw them. This group is fun to work along side and are quick witted and professional performers."
"The best Pyrate show ever. I've never laughed so hard in my life."
"My wife Jennifer and I went to Ireland for our honeymoon. There were many times that your music came to mind as we were looking at different areas. (Mist Covered Mountains of Home came to mind as we were looking at the Cliffs of Mohrer.) We thought you'd like to know that your music never goes away."
Sean and Jennifer Doherty
"This is amazing. Kick ass CD. I'm pretty sure my neighbors are not appreciating the fact that I've gotten it, but they can deal with a bit of 'Mist Covered Mountains' each night."
-- Regan Avery
"Singing along with you at the White Hart brought the joy of singing back to me. I joined a Navy choir at Ft. Meade and took over as director shortly after, but that wasn't quite what I was after, so I joined the Bach Society of Baltimore and helped to put on the Madrigal Feast last winter. As fun as that was, nothing compares to singing along with Pyrates."
Aric A. M. Albone
"We really enjoyed ourselves at the Maryland fest the opening weekend, and even though my husband, never a pub type, was reluctant, he enjoyed your onstage antics."
Maria and Opie Duvall
"My mom asked me to write to you and send you a great big YAY!!!!!! for the new cd. She got it today and I think she's already started to wear it out! : ) She has been playing it at a high volume on repeat ever since she got it."
"Chrissy and I wanted to tell you all what a blast we thought the album release party was! We have not had that much fun in a long, long time."
