Midnight Champagne and Alligator Jerky!

London Bridge Renaissance Faire, you showed us some amazing hospitality and a kick ass time! Let it be known that we: Resolve to control our F-Bomb Tourettes, get a jigglydance lesson for Uncle and buy Pavel some more appropriate footwear for the weather.


Arizonites, you ams hard core!

And? Voice of Faire, announcer guy whose name we probably should have gotten since we made multiple threats to kidnap you and take you on the road with us?


But we did indeed have a grand time with our extended kumpania: Cutthroat Reef, Colette the Bard and Thomas Wood: The Pyro Juggler, from our arrival at the lovely New Year’s Eve Ball where we got to do a song or three and then enjoy some champagne at the stroke of midnight, right up until tear-down at the end of Sunday’s festivities. I don’t recall when we’ve been better mic’d – even Pavel’s cowbell. NEAT! We’re ams all of the spoiledface and ruinedsauce now!

Also? We even ate Alligator Jerky!

(It was quite interesting and new which is a rare event when you are an undead Gypsy type who has been wandering the world for hundreds of years…so well done, House of Jerky merchant guy and his kid!)

Lake Havasu, London Bridge Renaissance Faire, we look forward to being in you again next year if you’ll have us! ❤

Going all the places, doing all the things!

Despite blog silence, Gallows Humor has been mighty busy lately. Doing what you might ask? Well.

Marian Von Gogu had a spectacular birthday celebration a couple months ago that we are still recovering from. Most notably, Mischa’s hindquarters because, clumsy. Also because Extreme Dancing™ with Mickey Slinger of Cutthroat Reef!

The lovely folks at Café Mermaid also secured our entrance to Koroneburg this year for final weekend where we sang a few songs and made fast friends with the brewing Monks, a brand spanking new guild at KBurg. As Baron Heinrich von Lauffer would say, they ams “WUNDEBAR!” and definitely our kinds of peoples.

We even got to join our good friends, Enchanted Realms, on stage for a few tunes!


About half of Gallows Humor made their way to the Pirate Invasion at Belmont Shore and played a bunch of songs there too. Silly Pirates, invasions are for Gypsies (and maybe the Spanish and our friends the brewing Monks who were also there). Especially at pirate festivals because how can pirates invade their own festivals? The short answer is, THEY CAN’T. (Unless you ams Sea Wolf because they ams magical and trixy)

So there you go.

We are also working on a couple of new CD’s, one recorded live and one recorded in the studio. We hope to have them ready for your voracious consumption at our next scheduled Renaissance Faire, Fall Escondido, along with another surprise or two that I have heard whispers of which may or may not be in the works, BECAUSE INTRIGUE!

So…STAY ALERT, You never know when or where we might show up.
