GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas – The Grand Prairie Airhogs and Ibidis Mortem Productions are proud to announce Pirate Night at QuikTrip Park, taking place on Friday, August 17th against the El Paso Diablos.
It is going to be an evening of baseball and buccaneers as Grand Prairie’s own pirate band, the Bilge Pumps, sail in to make a special appearance and a post-game show. This event will appeal to that inner buccaneer and baseball fan that are trying hard to get out.
The Bilge Pumps will be participating in sideline games and pirate fun throughout the game, including leading the audience in singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”. After the game, the band will perform a short show at the Fieldhouse Bar and Grill in left field as a teaser for their concert the following night at the Uptown Theater in Grand Prairie.
Game time is 7:05 and gates open at 6:05 p.m.
The Bilge Pumps are a pirate music group who specialize in performances that combine nautical songs, sea shanties, and Celtic music with a huge dose of silly comedy. The group performs larger than life in their authentic-feeling pirate-themed costumes and their variety of instruments backing up their bellowing voices. They have been in demand all over the country for their entertainingly goofy stage antics and their musical skill as they take everyone’s favorite nautical music and put their own particular spin on it.
The 2011 American Association Champion Grand Prairie AirHogs continue their four-game series against the Laredo Lemurs at QuikTrip Park on Saturday, August 4, at 7:05 p.m. It is another Fireworks Saturday Night, with a spectacular postgame pyrotechnics display. That night will feature a team card set giveaway, sponsored by Parkland Community Health Plan.
