Who, What and Where are the Scally Waggers?

Avast! We be Scally Waggers three,
Sometimes four or five or more,
Of Welsch, Irish, and Dutch decent,
We drink and play in old-tyme accent
Mike Maddox on Badhran, an old Celtic drum,
Ed McDermott on his fine upright bass, by gum!
Chad Van Herk tries to both sing and play guitar,
And all together, they can say YEEEARRRRRGH!
With sword and blunderbuss as belt cannon, aye,
Each sport the dress of their ancest-er-aye...
Mike clad in kilt, Ed in scally cap, and
Chad is the sailor, you can call him Cap(tain)!
We hail from Plymouth, IN, county of Marshall
But for any gig we sail, none to big or too small
So bring us together at your next floor-stomp,
Give us beer and rum and we'll make the place ROMP!
