The Barstool Sailors

Great music, good laughs, and quality entertainment are only a few words that describe the kind of show the Barstool Sailors put on night after night. Formed in the winter of 2006, the combination of music and spirits brought two talented performers together in what’s being called by many locals “a can’t miss” evening of entertainment.

The original sailor, Islamorada local singer/songwriter Micah Gardner, has relentlessly toured and played throughout the Keys for the last ten years. His warm and eclectic style, compelling original songs, and his skill to play both popular and obscure cover tunes has earned him a strong local following in the Keys. Micah wins over locals and tourists alike with his original material, reflecting on famous fishing captains, hurricanes, and the forgotten way of life in and around the islands. His songs engage the listener on a musical journey with woven messages encouraging thought, reflection, and hope. The second sailor embarked on a long voyage from the rocky coasts of Maine to Islamorada in 2006, and quickly found a home playing music in the local scene. For the last decade, singer/songwriter Nick Kimball has been entertaining audiences young and old with a combination of humor and personal acoustic performances. Mixing such genres as blues, rock, country, bluegrass, and reggae. Nick delves into a unique merging of soul and acoustic expression.

This season, Micah and Nick are teaming up as the acoustic duo “The Barstool Sailors”, and would love to bring their collection of songs, humor, and overall good vibes to your stage. Together they blend the essence of island music with the fast picking of bluegrass into something they like to call “Islandgrass.” Covering such artists, as Johnny Cash, Jack Johnson, Tom Petty, The Beatles, Jimmy Buffett, Sublime, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, John Prine, Dave Mathews, and The Grateful Dead, the Barstool Sailors connect with all lovers of music. We hope you will consider The Barstool Sailors for your lineup of talented local musicians at your establishment this 2007-2008 season. Thank you for supporting local musicians and the island arts community.
