Maybe it's the power of friendship. Maybe there's something in the water over in Newton and Boone Counties. Maybe it has to do with an unnamed intra-dimensional being bathed in the light of 1,000 stars and something about the space time continuum, and the threat of worlds colliding. (They'll explain later).
Whatever it is, something magical happens when Matt Smith, Jake Weeden, Barry Moore, and Jeff Kearney get together and play music together as The Flipoff Pirates.
The musicians, who have been performing together in the band while also anchoring other interesting music projects in and around Fayetteville for more than 25 years, are set to release a brand new Flipoff Pirates album titled Bones of the Past this weekend at George's.
