Cliff for 45 Years!

While Cliff has been performing for FAR longer than that, he has been playing the Griswold Inn for 45 years!  A steady gig for a folk performer is the envy of all of us in this genre, but that long!  We, the Jovial Crew, are lucky and grateful to have been a large part of this!

Pirate Monday

I had completely forgotten about this, but…

This coming Monday the 18th… Is our Pirate Monday!  Come sing songs of the sea with us and be attired in piratical garb or bar wench as you wish!  Sort of a pre-Halloween costumed event!


Hawaiian Shirt Night!

This coming Monday the 28th will be our annual Hawaiian Shirt Night!  SO many reasons but mostly that it’s usually hot and who doesn’t love exotic drinks and girls in grass skirts!  Break out your favourite Hawaiian shirt, Bermuda shorts, grass skirt, grab a lei and come on down for drinks and song!  Pass the word; come and get leid!


Happy Birthday Tim!

To our favourite pissed upon horse’s ass… Happy birthday, ol’ man!


Although there will be another alert as we get closer, now’s the time to mark your calendars… And get your tickets!  On Friday 28 July we’re playing aboard the Becky Thatcher, leaving the dock in Deep River for a little river cruise between 6p and 9p, singing all the way!  Tickets are 45$ and you should either call 800.377.3987 or visit the website  Your ticket gets you a train ride from the station in Essex up to rendezvous with the riverboat, time with us, and the return trip via the train to your vehicles back in Essex!  Perfect date night!

International Mariners

Monday – 10th July – we’ll be in the Covered Bridge Room (the back room) for a command performance for the combined groups of the Swiss Mariners (Basel) and the Ancient Mariners (Guilford).  We expect that the chantey group from both groups and maybe even the formidable Marc Bernier will get up to sing!  You might inquire for table space – dinner.  Like our St-Pat’s night/Survivor’s Night we’ll have a speaker in the tap room for your listening pleasure.

Let The Good Times Ring!
