Inspired by the likes of Madness, the Toy Dolls, and Pirates — Postmodern Pirates is a punky horn-driven rock band playing originals and a handful of 80s covers reworked in a ska format. Portland songwriter Kevin Hendrickson is best known as the pirate-core pioneer behind 90s glam rockers Pirate Jenny and the buccaneer band for all ages, Captain Bogg & Salty.

"Ever since Captain Bogg & Salty wound down about 8 years ago I’ve been itching to get out and play live again. The final nudge was playing an entire show of Oingo Boingo covers last fall with Boingo bassist John Avila and a talented group of Portland musicians. I was inspired by John’s energy and graciousness. At 59 he rocked harder than anyone I know, and he’s incredibly humble and nice. It made me want to get out there and play again, and to treat others with the same generosity he showed me and my band. Stay tuned!"

— Kevin Hendrickson
