No upcoming shows.
It all started in the sleepy village of Hawkwood sometime around the summer of 1999 - or 1699 if you refuse to surrender the fantasy. It was a hodgepodge of people: some friends, some mere acquaintances, and some simply blocked from memory. Some days there were 10 people, others three or four, but the group always found sometime during the weekend to walk around and torture the five people that paid to get in that day. From these humble roots the Bilge Pumps were born. It wasn't until a trip to the renaissance faire later that year that the idea of solidifying into a band was kicked around.
The band has had more than a dozen members, closed down three Irish pubs in the Dallas area and performed hundreds of shows.
