Album review from the BBC
The Wellington Wailers are a fine upstanding (sometimes) bunch of rogues, who are based in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, UK. We sing sea shanties - songs of the sea - and the odd tale of life onshore. We are known for entertaining audiences at concerts, festivals, village halls and, surprisingly, pubs! Arrrr! We are also known for providing educational and illustrated historical lectures. We can appear as a group of "respectable" uniformed performers or at other times something more outlandish. Then the pirates in us take hold and we dress in all manner of attire, appearing as a crew of "scurvy dawgs". Double arrrr!! We are available for community and corporate engagements, private parties, or any other special occasions.
We perform in pubs, clubs, concerts and festivals! We also perform at private functions, such as parties and corporate events.
Contact us if you wish us to be part of your special event!
