‘Joyful Noise with a Side of Jerky’ and ‘The St. Pete Shanties’!

Sunday, September 13, 2015 @ 3:00pm / COST: FREE (Donations Gratefully Appreciated)

JOYFUL NOISE WITH A SIDE OF JERKY: is a recently formed trio from St Pete. Their debut performance was a few months ago at Skipper’s Smokehouse during a benefit concert for Crescendo (The Tampa Bay Women’s Chorus). Suffice it to say that they wer1431098571_JNJ_Gmaile very well received. They brought the house down!

Joyful Noise members, all of whom have great voices, are Carla Eastridge /ukulele, René Carroll/djembe, and Gina Poole/multi-instrumentalist, including mini steel drum. Their musical selections include covers from the 60s-90s from the genres of Folk/Pop/Rock/Whimsy/Island/Reggae. Eclectic, (mostly) familiar songs with an island flair, PLUS sweet harmonies PLUS exquisite instrumentation EQUALS a unique, entertaining, crowd-pleasing performance.


THE ST PETE SHANTIES are Capt. Rick Correa, Laurie Clement, Dennis Devine, Kate Kroupa, Fred Seidl and Bruce Witten (plus an occasional special guest). To say that these singers are a lively and enthusiastic bunch is putting it mildly! They sing Maritime Music; ie, Shanties, Fo’c’le songs, Tavern Ballads and Broadside Ballads. Their special mission is to bring to light the shanstpeteshantiesties sung in the mid 1800s by sailors reaching Florida ports, by the stevedores who loaded and unloaded ships, and by the fishermen who fished the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico from Florida ports. A wee background: In the mid 1800s, Florida was a major participant in the international trade of cotton on a route called the Cotton Triangle. Sailing ships from New York and Liverpool delivered Florida cotton to the U.S. North and to Europe. Sailors’ songs, shanties and songs sung in crews’ quarters were mixed with songs of dockworkers and riverboat deckhands which, in turn, had their origins in spirituals and African-American work songs.

The St Pete Shanties have appeared at Eckerd College, The 100th Anniversary Celebration of the St. Petersburg Parks, Pinellas Folk Festival, Sarasota Folk Club, and elsewhere. .

WHAT THE AUDIENCE CAN EXPECT: An enjoyable afternoon of enthusiastic, eclectic, entertaining, enticing music. Audience interaction is anticipated. A fine time will be had by all!
