Mighty drinking songs for fans of Joss Whedon's “Firefly” and “Serenity”.
The perfect sound for hoisting a mug of mudder's milk!
It all began while I was watching an episode of Firefly called “Jaynestown”. In it, one of our antiheroes is drinking in a pub worried he’s gonna be arrested for past crimes he committed in Canton when a musician starts singing a song about him. The song is called the “Hero of Canton“.
It turns out, “Hero of Canton” even inspired me to ask the question, “What other songs might’ve been heard in that pub in Canton?”
You may think that Firefly is just a canceled TV show. But we're here to tell you that it lives on through the imaginations of Browncoats like us and many more.
Marc Gunn plays Celtic music with a Geeky twist. Sing along with the traditional songs of Ireland and Scotland mixed with Science fiction and fantasy inspired by Firefly, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek and even cats.
Mikey Mason explodes on stage with a wit as fast as his mouth, infectiously hilarious original songs, and his completely twisted view. He is not right in the head and he likes it that way.
Check out Bedlam Bards, Marc's partners in rhyme on the original Firefly Drinking Songs album and the first band to ever record a Firefly album.
I don't know about you, but I watch a couple episodes every week. It's like comfort food. I love the lines. I love the interactions. I love my Captain. And I love my fellow Browncoats.
I am not content to let Firefly fade into oblivion. It inspires me as person and musically as well. That's why I started Firefly Drinking Songs. But I can't do it alone.
