More than a lifestyle

The Sail Bums came about from our love of sailing combined with our passion for making music. For the past 20 years, we have been performing together at events, weddings, and concerts throughout New England.  Although our set lists feature many songs that fit into the sailing and cruising lifestyle, our repertoire of music includes collections of popular songs and an extensive selection of covers and original music perfect for any and every occasion. We’re flexible in the songs and styles we perform and will work with you to suit your event. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information.


"We love having the Sail Bums at Happy Endings Martini, Tapas, and Dessert Bar, and we hire them on a regular basis. They're so interactive with our crowd. Gaylen and Allison frequently learn new songs requested by our clientele, and they just make the environment fun. But beyond that, they're seasoned professionals.  I can count on them, and they're willing to go go above and beyond to accommodate our needs. Everyone has a blast when the Sail Bums are playing!"

Corey Butterfield

“We have known Allison and Gaylen for a number of years and when we were planning our wedding we could not think of anyone else we would want to hire as our wedding singers. As our wedding and reception  planning continued we decided to also hire them as our  cocktail hour entertainers.  From the first meeting a year before the wedding followed by multiple other meetings, email and messages both Allison and Gaylen were most gracious and helpful. 
We changed our direction with the wedding multiple times and they were more than willing to accommodate all of our changes.  They learned music they didn't know that we requested specifically for the wedding and they even adapted to the last minute changes during rehearsal.  We would highly recommend this most talented duo for any function."
