ABOUT THE SAIL BUMS
More than a lifestyle
We're Allison and Gaylen, and we've been a couple and playing music together more than 20 years. We live on our 37 foot sailboat, Mollynogger, and we travel performing music and enjoying life on the water.
We've done it all--weddings, pub gigs, private clubs, boating events, corporate open houses, employee appreciation parties, and festivals. We also do private house parties focused on our original music.
Our set lists features songs about island living, the cruising lifestyle, enjoying being on the water, and the sense of freedom that comes with living on a boat. We do a lot of everyone's favorite songs and ones that make people want to sing along with us. Plus, we write and perform our own original music.
We're flexible in styles, too, to make sure we can create the atmosphere you want for your occasion.
We tend to focus on popular music and the island feel, but we've got a long history of doing jazz, rock, folk, and country together. We have a large repertoire to draw upon to make your event a success and fun for your patrons, and we're good at reading the crowd.
Want something specific? Just ask! We can probably deliver.
"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!"
“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."
WHAT DO WE SOUND LIKE?
"The Sail Bums made my birthday party so very fun. They surprised me by learning a song that has special meaning to me, and it helped make the celebration extremely meaningful and memorable."
