Introduction
Playing together since 2003, Kevin & David have put together an acoustic mixture of oldies and new songs, with influences from folk, country, R&B, and rock. We have tight, smooth harmonies and an easy, acoustic sound. We play small-to-medium size venues, including restaurants/pubs, wedding receptions, birthday and other parties, fundraisers, and outdoor venues. We enjoy having fun with our listeners, often inviting them to come up and sing with us... and many have received the eye patches we award to 'honorary Pirates' at various venues. We play an occasional original, but mostly we like watching the looks of recognition and seeing & hearing people singing along to familiar favorites. Email us for booking info!

The Time Pirates were a fantastic addition to my Mom’s birthday party! They sounded great! They allowed my singing family to join in with them and everyone had such a nice time!. The guests were still taking about how much they liked them days later. They played lots of different kinds of music to suit everyone’s taste. They were excellent! We all had so much fun! Great for any occasion!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For private parties we charge 150 dollars an hour with a 2 hour minimum charge. Call for corporate and business rates. These vary depending on how many bookings and or days are required. Travel over one hour from our home base in Columbia SC will require an additional fee to the base cost. All fees are discussed up front and agreed upon before booking is final. Cancellation within 30 days of the booking will result in a charge of the base rate excluding travel expenses.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We like to know what kinds of music that you and your guests like. We can tailor a setlist to suit. We also let you know that we get patrons involved by setting up an extra microphone so that everyone can get involved. We love to have the crowd sing along with us!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    David and Kevin have been playing together and honing their skills for 18 years. David sang during his time at Wofford College and has directed chorus and choir groups. Kevin has also performed in choral groups and choirs. We began playing shows over 3 years ago and have consider ourselves fortunate to have found success doing what we love to do. We currently play 3 to 5 shows every week.
