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!

When I started planning in March to celebrate a 30th anniversary in June I contacted Time Pirates. They replied every time within 24 hours. That was what impressed me the most in the beginning They did not pressure me but just said let us know if you need more info and I continued to chat with them and finally set the date. When they arrived they wanted it to be our party / celebration! It was incredible. My brother in law and sister-in-law were thrilled as well as the entire family! It was so much fun. We sang, we danced, we laughed and spent a quality night of fun together. Thanks again Time Pirates it was a blast! Mary Ann H

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.
