What are the Merry Wives up to in September and October?

Contests and New York in the Fall!

The Merry Wives have two important updates.

1.) We will be performing for the first time at the New York Renaissance Faire for it's closing weekend of October 5 and 6th, 2019! That weekend's theme is "Celtic Weekend", so we'll fit right in with our Celtic music style. The faire is located at 600 Route 17A, Tuxedo, NY 10987. You can get your tickets at the following link: Ticket prices and coupons

2.) We are competing in a contest to perform at the famous Hollywood Bowl in October as well. Thanks to all of our fans for getting us through round one of the contest! It would be amazing to open for someone at the Hollywood Bowl. We would appreciate very much if you continue to vote daily through the second round (and longer if we make it further). The contest works as follows:

1.) Round 1 (Over, we made it! Thank you), August 27-September 5 public voting.
2.) Round 2 (About halfway through - Keep voting), September 6 - September 12. First place from each group moves on. We are currently in second place so could use your help to move up!).
3.) Round 3 - Semi-finals (Begins September 13 - September 19 (Fingers crossed - help us get there!).
4.) Finals - Battle rounds. Top 16 will be winnowed to top 8 on September 23 and 24. Top 8 will be winnowed to top 4 on September 25 and September 26. Top 4 will be winnowed to top 2 on September 30 and October 1. Top 2 will compete and winner will be decided on October 2 with winner announced October 3.

So, we hope to move through each round, and with your help, we might. Please keep voting once per day. We'll try not to pester, but we'd love to see how far we can go! Vote here for The Merry Wives of Windsor every day! . We are having fun with this contest, and with the help of our fans, we will go as far as we can.

Current MWOW Show Schedule

Here comes the New Year: MWOW style!

Thank you for a fantastic 2017!

We have had such a busy and wonderful 2017, and we cannot thank our fans enough for all of your support. This past year we have performed at numerous festivals including The Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire, The Northern California Renaissance Faire, The Nottingham Renaissance Festival, The Central Coast Renaissance Faire, The Two Rivers Renaissance Faire, Riverside Dickens Festival, and the The Northern California Pirate Festival. We have also enjoyed playing at other venues such as the Coffee Gallery in Altadena, CA; The Musical Women of Fullerton, The Concern Foundation for Cancer Research's Block Party on the Paramount Backlot, and a joint performance for St. Patrick's day with some of our fellow bands, the Poxy Boggards and Sportive Tricks. We had a blast online, at Geek and Sundry's, "Gather Your Party", and we have also been in the studio recording our 8th CD!!!!

In 2017 we have experienced highs and lows and momentous occasions. Band members have gotten married, engaged, bought homes, sold homes, moved, gotten new jobs, traveled the world and published books. Through it all, our fans have supported us and continued to appreciate our quirky company. We thank you so much!

Our “Thank you” in a sing-a-long

To thank you for a wonderful year, we live-streamed our Second Annual Christmas Sing-A-Long and just in case you didn't get a chance to see it, we've saved the video to our facebook page, just for you.
