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.

We are pleased to announce that work has begun on our 8th Studio Album. We're not sure what it will be called, but it will feature all new tunes as well as a few fan favorites, and we hope you'll follow along throughout the process!
At Long Last!
The most anticipated Merry Wives album of this year is now digital! Share it with your friends, share it with your family, share it with your kids and you won't have to have "that talk" later!
Act quickly and you could be the first to write a review! But only if you liked it. If you think it stank, we'd prefer you retain judicious silence.
We'd like to thank our producers, Heather Greene and Stu Venable, who spent many long hours in the studio trying not to plot our demise as they took the dross we gave them and spun it into the audio gold you'll hear. Well, silver. Hey, at least bronze.
So thanks to them, and thanks to you our loyal fans. Now where's that margarita mix, this celebratory tequila isn't going to drink itself!
We’ve polished up some new tunes for our gig this weekend at the Mayflower Club! Tickets are $10 and can be purchased directly from the Welsh League of Southern California.
Who: You, The Merry Wives, and your Welsh-enthusiast friends!
What: A night of Welsh music and laughter
When: Saturday, 8/8/15 at 6:30pm
Where: The Mayflower Club in North Hollywood
Why: Why not!
