Main Street in downtown Grand Prairie, Texas. It's going to be an evening of pirate music, swashbuckling fun, and nautical nonsense for the whole family. The evening stars Grand Prairie's own pirate band, the Bilge Pumps, in an event will appeal to everyone's inner buccaneer trying hard to get out. The band will also be joined by their pirate poetry dispensing shipmates, the Seadog Slam, who will be in the lobby pre-show and during intermissions entertaining everyone with salty rhymes to soothe your ears.

Lobby doors will open at 5 p.m., theater doors will open at 5:30 p.m., followed by the rum-drenched music and comedy of the Bilge Pumps starting at 6 p.m. The show will even be recorded for possible inclusion on the band's forthcoming album.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 5-12. Tickets are for general seating and can be purchased in advance by calling the Uptown Box Office at 972-237-UPTN (8786), at the theater on the day of the event, by visiting the theater's online box office, or by visiting thebilgepumps.com.

The Bilge Pumps are a pirate music group who specialize in performances that combine nautical songs, sea shanties, and Celtic music with a huge dose of silly comedy.

The group performs larger than life in their pirate costumes with their variety of instruments backing up their bellowing voices. They have been in demand all over the country for their goofy stage antics as they take everyone's favorite nautical music and add their own particular spin on it.

Their show is crafted to pull each audience member in, encourage them to play along with their high-energy shenanigans, and have them leave with a smile on their face and a story to tell their friends.
