The Dukes of Dodge formed to play St. Patrick’s day at the Waverley three years ago and have been playing with impunity ever since.

The Dukes of Dodge formed to play St. Patrick’s day at the Waverley three years ago and have been playing with impunity ever since.

To get them all fired up for this years St. Patty’s Party at the Wave on March 17, they are going to warm up with a set at Jilli Martini’s Showcase on Tuesday at the Avalanche Bar & Grill.

If you want to be entertained and want a sneak preview of these crazy guys before their St. Patty’s Party, then check it out.

The Dukes of Dodge are Cumberland’s own hillbilly pirate swamp orchestra.

Trashy, Gooey, Squeaky, Pinky and Sweetie Duke might all be cousins, but nobody knows for certain.

What if Johnny Cash, Bob Marley and Judas Priest were trapped on a sinking ship surrounded by cannibal pirate zombies? What music would they play on their last night as a blood red moon rose over the howling swamp?

Come and find out March 13 at the Avalanche. Music is from 8 to 11 p.m.

— Jilli Martini
