The Skallywags

Band Bio

The Skallywags are a 3 piece indie, pop/rock group based in Aurora, IN and the greater Cincinnati area. Collectively, the members of the band have an outstanding musical background formed by a diverse upbringing deeply enveloped in music. This diversity shows through in their songwriting. A listener may notice some tastes of classic rock, punk, alternative, progressive rock,… Indie, pop, folk, singer/songwriter, country, blues, metal, hip hop, R&B, show tunes… etc

Although members of the group have achieved individual success in music, The Skallywags formed In October 2009. However, they have quickly grown successful as a regularly gigging music group. Music from the group can be heard on 89.7FM WNKU, 88.9FM Class X, 99.3FM WSCH, and 102.7FM WEBN. They played at events featuring Mark Farner, Blue Oyster Cult, and Willie Nelson, and Lorrie Morgan. The Skallywags were also featured on the morning show Indy Style WISH TV Channel 8, and Bengal Nation and Cadillac Ranch on Channel 12 WKRC. There will be much more to come and we thank everyone who helped along the way.

Recently the group has undergone some lineup changes as well as changes in the general sound of the group. Now down to a three piece group with an all new acoustic, dance, indie, pop, kind of thing that is wonderfully hard to explain until you hear it. They have just finished up a new three song demo of the new sound and are expecting to have a full length album released by Christmas 2011
