Michael Palms (DJ Mikey Palms), a native New Yorker from Brooklyn, has been a constant figure in the NYC music scene for the past 10 years. He was the owner of two major music venues: Southpaw & Public Assembly, and is also the producer for many outdoor events in NYC, including the Jelly NYC Pool Parties & the Brooklyn Night Bazaar.

Palms has provided soundtracks for a huge range of events — everything from house parties, social events, and weddings, to nightclubs and corporate events. He is well known on Internet radio and is the founder and creator of Chances with Wolves, on East Village Radio. Mikey is looking forward to creating a fantastic shanty musical vibe that will rock the Pirate Ball.

Bliss Blood & Al Street, Local Musicians featured at the Pirate Ball


We’re excited to feature Bliss Blood and Al Street as performers at the Pirate Ball!

Bliss Blood began her career as vocalist and songwriter in the band Pain Teens in Houston and continued to write music and perform with guitarist Al Street, and bands The Moonlighters and Delta Dreambox, in New York City since 1996.  Al Street is a master of style and of the guitar itself. Bliss & Al play regularly in New York City area, including Wednesday nights at The Flatiron Room in Manhattan. Their songs are erotic, sensual, stripped-down rhapsodies to longing, love, and secret desires, and tap into musical styles from across the sound spectrum, from flamenco to jazz to punk rock to North African music, anchored by Al Street’s lyrical, virtuosic guitar, and Bliss Blood’s dreamy, cinematic, and deeply amorous lyrics. Bliss and Al are thrilled to participate and support the Barge & Waterfront Museum.
