The Shark Alley Hobos pay tribute to the Purple One with this sea shanty infused version of When Doves Cry. Stay tuned to the end for the rousing “Purple Danny Boy”…

While making their first (and last) appearance at the Northern California Pirate Festival, the Hobos were missing their fallen leader Mike Lee. Squinty and One Eyed Jack remembered that they had always wanted to form a Prince tribute band called Darling Mikki and the Beautiful Ones. While reminiscing over a Mai Tais and a giant turkey leg, Squinty and One Eyed Jack grew tired of watching the other Hobos watching the belly dancing act—and began to dream big. What if the Hobos did the entire Purple Rain album sea shanty style? Within minutes, the sea shanty version of When Doves Cry was born! Will the dream of Purple Rain sea shanty style--maybe with belly dancers--ever be realized? Probably not, but reality has never stopped the Shark Alley Hobos…

Raise a glass to the Purple One and sing along with the chorus!
