Songs of daring-do with nary a hey nonny nonny. The Boogie Knights have parodied everything from commercial jingles to TV and movie themes, from golden oldies to the latest top-40 songs.
The Boogie Knights is a group of performers who create and sing
history- and fantasy-inspired parodies of modern songs. The group
was created at the science fiction convention Shore Leave (near
Baltimore, MD) in 1982 and they've been performing at science fiction
conventions and the occasional renaissance festival ever since.
Their first two CDs ("Cavalier Attitude"
and "Oh the Horror!") are out of print, and three of their CDs ("Many
a Sleepless Knight", "Hysterically
and "Many a
Sleepless Knight") are in short supply, but their newest CD ("Wasted Days and Wasted Knights") is readily available via CD Baby. (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/boogieknights1)

16 OCT 2012 - The Boogie Knights were one of the topics discussed in the Pros & Cons Podcast (#4) Interview with Chris Addotta and Ame Morris who run Marscon's incomparable Con Suite.
"Pros and Cons is a new podcast from musicians Mikey Mason and Jonah Knight. The show explores the soundtrack to geek music and scifi convention culture with discussions, interviews, and the music itself. What geek music and musicians need to be heard? What science fiction and fantasy conventions need to be experienced? How do the worlds of film, TV, tabletop RPGs, and every other awesome thing get explored in the music of fandom?"
