The Shipwrecked Castaways
Roving Minstrel available for hire, based in Victoria
The Shipwreck Castaways: A luxury cruise ship is shipwrecked in the Pacific Ocean, the only survivors are a band of the ships musicians.
After many months a drift at sea, these “Ship Wreck Castaways” are so overjoyed to have found land at last, that they celebrate with song, merriment & infectious nautical humour.
The performance is an audience interactive, roving, costumed, musical trio playing Banjo, Ukulele, & Percussion (on a tea chest). The same tea chest that they used as a life raft allowing whilst using the Ukuleles as paddles. Three grown men in a tea chest, they will accurately demonstrate how they fitted in the tea chest using it as a raft, fending off shark attacks, whilst keeping a watchful eye out for mermaids (rescuers).
The Shipwreck Castaways play & sing a wide range of "cruise ship" classics like: TEQUILA, SWAY, TICO TICO, THAT'S AMORE, GIRL FROM IPANEMA, HERNANDO’S HIDEAWAY, PERFIDIA, QUANDO QUANDO, STIR UP, BLAME IT ON THE BOSSA NOVA just to name a few..
