In June 2017, Bone & String played for the Mid-Atlantic Nordic Tug Owners Association (MANTOA) at an outdoor venue at the Herrington Harbour South marina. There were forty members of MANTOA present who thoroughly enjoyed over two hours of the band's pirate music and costume. Bone & String was very generous with their time and played several encores for us that evening. In addition, the band often interacted with us, and included us in the singing of refrains and verse. Bone & String is more than a band. They are a professional group of talented performers and singers who entertain their audiences with song and period-time character. MANTOA highly recommends Bone & String and can't wait to be entertained by them again.

Bone and String is a group of engaging young chantey singers who are as entertaining as they are colorful. Outfitted like a band of regrade pirates, they sing unaccompanied songs that are by turn hauntingly beautiful and rollicking. They have performed at First Free Friday and the Solomons Maritime Festival. Appropriate for anyone who enjoys a good chantey song.

We were lucky enough to have Bone & String as our featured act at Herrington Harbour South's First Annual Pirate Party. This incredibly fun and talented group of young musicians engaged and entertained our spirited crowd of over 400 for nearly 3 hours. We felt so lucky to have them play this party, and we can not wait to have them back again!

F*cking Delightful!
