Welcome Aboard - I'm Rockin' Ron the Friendly Pirate!
Welcome aboard! I perform entertaining and educational Pirate Music for Kids and Kids at Heart (me hearties) on my CDs & DVD, as well as in person. My stylistically diverse songs are full of nautical references and have boatloads of wordplay. Here's a recent review from Kids VT.
As a pirate who tries to be friendly and helpful I have provided you with educational lesson plans, lyrics to my songs, and coloring pages. I am available for pirate appearances at schools, libraries events and paRRRties. If you need any assistance... drop me a message in a bottle.
Now you SEA me!

I'm unbelivably excited about the release of Pirate PaRRRty! - my second album. It contains 20 brand new songs ranging from the pop dance groove of the opener We RRR the Pirate People, to the taken-from-history tale of 1717 (Black Sam Bellamy), to the raucous rock of Rock the Plank, to the surfin' style of FP's Raingiutter Regatta. There are gentle moments in the lullabyes of Magical Mermaid Parade and Safe Harbor. There are songs that can be used for special occaisions such as Pirate Birthday PaRRRty, Buccaneer Bells, Mother of Pearl, and Dad's Alright, He's Pirate - for Birthdays, Yuletide Celebrations, Mother's Day, and Father's Day respectively. As always, there RRR lots of puns and fun with language in Polly Esther Pants, Pirates of the Mayo, and The Word Pirate... and languages in Gator's Gotta Go. The physical CD is currently available at Buttered Noodles, Brown & Jenkins, and Smugglers' Notch Resort, and online through CD Baby. Downloads are available on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and other sites.
It takes alot to make an album: from recording to packaging to inspiration and encouragement. Planks and thanks go to April "me Very First & Only Matey" Tuck, Andre "Fearless Fretmaster" Maquera of West Street Digital, Tracy Wolters of Northern Moon Music, Ashley "Kentucky Corsair" Sikora of Wink & a Smile Design, Wendy "Pearly Polly" Maquera, Mingo "SatRRR... fish" Maquera, Pat and Janice "Pirates of the" Mayo, Will "Buccaneer Bassist" Patton, and all my friends and fans!
Pirate Drinking PaRRRtners!
Pirates get a bad rap sometimes (I wrote a good rap). With all their grog drinking they can get a little cranky. As a friendly pirate my bevvy of choice is Brown & Jenkins Buccaneer Brew. This Toasted Coconut flavored coffee is extraordinarily tasty, and puts a jig in any pirate's step. Order online at www.brownjenkins.com.
The Vermont Liberty Tea Company has cracked open a tea chest full of booty - Pirate Boo Tea! This herbal tea is made with rooibos, pineapple, coconut, spearmint, hibiscus, and natural flavors. Served hot or cold, it ushers in a taste of the islands. As a caffeine-free-tea, it's perfect before Buccaneer Bedtime. Order on the website or email email@example.com.
