Berserk Bastards 01

Prepare to be invaded by the only real Viking pirate band in the world! The Berserk Band was established in Cuba 2007 under the name “Cuban Bohemian Refugee Orchestra” during the Berserk-sailing expedition through the Northwest Passage.

“Berserk” met the US sailboat “FUBAR” and the music adventure begun. The first tunes was jammed into shape through early mornings in the Caribbean sunsets and a whole lot of rum. The tunes later became singalong songs on deck, and the lyrics were written as the expedition went along.

Back in Norway, after successfully completing the arctic expedition, the Berserk Bastards was born. The songs have been recorded in different studios around the world with local heroes and bastards. Key West’s Stephen LaPierre produced the album, and arranged for them to come here for a couple of weeks.

Joining them will be some local musicians whose names you should recognize. Along with Stephen LaPierre, there will be Dave Hoffman on guitar, Steve Gibson on mandolin, and Rob Cook on drums.

They’ll be at Cowboy Bill’s Friday and Saturday 10 PM-2 AM, brave the light of day at the Key West Artisan Market at Eaton and White Streets Sunday 1-2 PM, and hold forth at Schooner Wharf next Monday at 9 PM.


You’re listening to Into the Sun, fromThe Berserk Bastards’ album “Sailing Away.”
