The Conch Republic Band

Posted in Trop Rock Artists, Trop Rock Happenings | Comments Off on The Conch Republic Band

  Conch Republic
A little bit Rock and Roll…
A little bit Sand and Soul!  

 

CONCH REPUBLIC is a “Trop Rock” or beach band (often referred to as a Jimmy Buffett tribute band)  and the recipient of  the 2010 and 2011 Rising Star Award for Top Beach Band by GigMasters.com, the number one online booking venue for world-class performers. . The CONCH REPUBLIC show is high-energy and focuses on crowd participation.  Since 2006, this “band of pirates” has been “bringing the beach” to  fans  across the mid-west and southern states including venues such as Margaritaville Key West, Cheeseburger In Paradise in OH; parrot head events in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina,  and Illinois;  festivals, winerys, and  corporate events across Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Virginia and Ohio; ; and casinos in Mississippi where we had the honor of opening for the Beach Boys.  And now CONCH REPUBLIC is ready  to travel any distance to bring  the beach party to YOU!

We offer two primary options when booking the band. We do our best to tailer  each show to fit your event and budget. Please contact us to discuss your event and allow us to work with you on what we can do to customize a show that will make your event a HUGE success!

 

CONCH REPUBLIC:

This is the party you want! Not just a band, we make it a party! First, we set the stage with a colorful  back-drop, tons of beachy decorations, and up to 10 musicians (including vocals, electric guitar, keyboards, acoustic guitar, ukulele, steel drums, congass,  bongos, full drum kit,  all kinds of other fun percussion instruments,   bass, vocals and dancers/backup singers) for a very FULL sound and exciting performance. Next, we add lots of fun and games with conga lines, hula hoops, a limbo set, beach balls and more! Our set list includes all your tropical and beach  favorites to bring the island feel to your event! ! We even slip in a few other “party” favorites to keep everyone singing along and out on the dance floor!
CONCH ON THE HALF SHELL:

“Conch On The Half Shell” is a lively, acoustic show made up of four or five  musicians of the band CONCH REPUBLIC. Their music includes a blend of congas, steel drums, other percussion, vocals, ukulele and acoustic guitar, which instantly takes you down to the islands!   Whether it be a Hawaiian luau or Caribbean beach party, “Conch On The Half Shell” has the tropical sounds and high energy sto bring the party to life! With island music from Jamaica to Tahiti – from Jimmy Buffett to the Beach Boys – they have the perfect blend for Trop Rock fun!  Still the fun, beachy songs you love, but unplugged and without the beach back-drop,  lights, and beachie props. This show works great for smaller clubs or venues where there is not much space. This show is performed with a smaller sound system that is suitable for  smaller venues or events on a smaller budget.

Aloha!!   

The Conch Republic Annual Publication is our attempt at an informative (and humorous)   communication to let our fans and potential clients know a bit more about whom we are, what we are up to, and a little bit about why we do what we do.   OK, so we HOPE to get one out to you more often than “annually”, but in case our schedule gets so busy that we can’t keep up, we have only promised once a year!

Tequila and SUN-ora

 We promise not to over-load your in-box with tons of repetitive information and boring updates. We don’t “check-in” every time we run to the store or stop for a drink…  (That could get us in TROUBLE!)  Our preference is not to focus on US, but on our community, our clients and our fans.  We hope this and all editions of “The Latest C.R.A.P.” bring a smile to your face and a bit of joy to your day.

 

Sincerely,
Conch Republic Band                           

 

International Talk like a Pirate Day – September 19th, 2012!
Avast, ye maties! A fine day be approachin’ and ye had better keep a weathered eye! 
If ye scallywags be searchin’ for a port (for supplies and pillage and plunder) the pirates of the Conch Republic will be plunderin’ at one of their favorite port o’ call – The Boat House at the Regatta. 5pm be the time! Capt’n Tommy Tsunami, Scallywag SUNora, and Pirate Panama be searchin’ for the rum barrels  Yo, Ho haul  together, hoist the colors high!  Yo Yo – Yo Ho A Pirate’s Life For Me!  Savvy!?!
Talk Like a Pirate: (From the web)
Pirate lingo is rich and complicated, sort of like a good stew. But if you just want a quick fix, a surface gloss, a “pirate patina,” if you will, here are the five basic words that you cannot live without. Master them, and you can face Talk Like a Pirate Day with a smile on your face and a parrot on your shoulder, if that’s your thing.
Ahoy! – “Hello!”
Avast! – Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, “Whoa! Get a load of that!” which today makes it more of a “Check it out” or “No way!” or “Get off!”
Aye! – “Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did.”
Aye aye! – “I’ll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over.”
Arrr! – This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. “Arrr!” can mean, variously, “yes,” “I agree,” “I’m happy,” “I’m enjoying this beer,” “My team is going to win it all,” “I saw that television show, it sucked!” and “That was a clever remark you or I just made.” And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!
Arrrgh! – “I’m VERY miffed.”
