We are pleased to announce the 2018 Tybee Pirate Fest headline act, Quiet Riot! Tickets are on sale now.
The story of QUIET RIOT begins in 1980 when Kevin DuBrow formed a new band under his own name, working with Frankie Banali and a variety of musicians over the next few years before signing with Pasha/CBS Records, reverting back to the QUIET RIOT moniker, and entering the studio with new guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Chuck Wright to start work on a new album. The year was 1982 and, following Randy Rhoads’ well-documented death, former henchman Rudy Sarzo left Ozzy, replacing Chuck Wright who is the bass player on record for both the “Metal Health” and “Don’t Wanna Let You Go” tracks, to complete the lineup and sessions for what would become 1983’s Metal Health. Driven by the irresistible double whammy of the title track’s muscular bass line and a raucous rendition of the old Slade chestnut “Cum on Feel the Noize,” the album stormed up the U.S. charts, duly reaching the number one spot and going platinum five times over in the process at that time. The sales of Metal Health has now exceeded the 10 million mark worldwide to date. READ MORE…
Thomas Claxton and the Myth
Thomas Claxton, an up and coming vocalist / songwriter in the national music scene, is returning to the tradition of rock and roll by doing things his style and going against the norm — as is evidenced by his tight and crowd-pleasing band, “Thomas Claxton and The Myth”, and by the polished and carefully arranged original acoustic rock, which makes up his upcoming, THIRD independently released album, “Age Of Propaganda”.

Sapphire Bullets of Pure Love
The Sapphire Bullets, the legendary rhythm & blues big band, has been rocking Savannah for over 25 years, playing dance and listening favorites from Steely Dan, Toto, Tower of Power, James Brown and more.
The band shines with The Bonaventure Horns, a section of two trumpets, trombone, sax and baritone sax, adding the big band punch to the standards as well as many current songs. You won’t be able to sit still once this group of seasoned professionals kicks it off…all the way through the (inevitable) encore!
Two guitars, bass, a real Hammond Organ, two drummers and a singer promise that you’ll have a great night!
In for a Penny
In For A Penny is a rowdy, four piece, acoustic, Irish Celtic folk punk band. (Whew!) We’re ready to bring our folk punk twist to your favorite traditional Celtic tunes, as well as some rowdy original material to the dirty south, and beyond. Foot stompin’, beer drinkin’ music, with the odd 80’s pop cover thrown in, just because every loves them and nobody else plays them. When In For A Penny cranks it up, it’s like having a St. Paddy’s Day party any night of the week! Get ready Savannah… things are about to get a little bit more rowdy around here!
In For A Penny draws inspiration from band ranging from Celtic Punk giants Dropkick Murphy’s and The Rumjacks to 80’s & 90’s greats Tears for Fears and The Cranberries as well as traditional Irish staples like The Dubliners. The members are equally as diverse, with backgrounds in punk, rap, hardcore and hair metal. Stories will be told, glasses will be raised and good times will be had by all as In For A Penny time and time again draws audiences into the party.
