Sharks Come Crusin

One Saturday in November of 2002, in a three family tenement on Jewett Street in Providence, RI, I heard the song Spanish Ladies for the first time while watching the film “Jaws” on television. At that moment, I discovered a musical history that was a genuine to New England—something I had been in search of for years.

In December of 2003 Seth Forden joined in on bass guitar and vocal harmony. In the fall of 2004, Ed Wenzl came aboard as drummer. Paul Dube began playing accordion in 2006 shortly before we recorded “Live at Jake’s” at Jake’s Bar and Grill on Richmond Street in Providence, RI. In late summer of 2007, Eric Wohgemuth joined in on banjo and Jonathan Cannon on fiddle. In 2008 we released Four Years Before the Mast, our first studio recording.

The mission of Sharks Come Cruisin is to shed light on these forgotten songs, to remind us of a day when music and work went hand and hand, and most importantly, to bring people together to holler, shout, and sing along to songs of drinking and sinking.
