Kristin Reimer will be on board to capture all the jubilation of the Pirate Ball

image004We are so pleased to have Kristin Reimer on board as our official photographer for the Pirate Ball. Kristin is the founder of Photomuse, a fine art and documentary style wedding and portrait studio based in Brooklyn. A graduate of Pratt Institute and member of several photojournalism guilds and associations, she has blended her artistic background with her love of photojournalism to create award-winning imagery worldwide.

Here is how Kristin describes her approach to photography:

“When shooting I am sensitive, empathetic, determined, and playful. I find myself utilizing textures, layers, and whimsy not to just document, but to tell a visual tale filled with hope, magic, and passion.”

We are excited that Kristin will be there to capture the excitement and community spirit of 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.
