Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew is an electronic music group specializing in pirate-themed hip hop music. Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew combines elements from hip hop music genres such as gangsta rap, nerdcore hip hop, and crunk with Baroque and Classical instrumentation, usually achieved through the use of synthesizers and other methods associated with computer music. Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew has performed at venues such as Nerdapalooza.
Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew was formed in 2006 by friends Dan Dolan and Brad Podray as a musical side-project. Other musicians have also contributed to the group's works, including Alex Zakak, Scott Dolan, Brian Kenig, Chris Ortega, ZealouS1, Phil Brainerd, and Shivaame Timbers. Much of the group's music has been the result of collaboration between individuals on the internet. Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew has appeared on a number of radio talk shows, including "The Awful Show", World of Warcraft Radio's [EPIC], "Steppin' to the Bad Side", and KROQ-FM's "Kevin and Bean". The group was also featured in the October 2008 issue of Blender magazine as part of a featurette on Nerdapalooza. In summer 2012 the band auditioned for America's Got Talent, but did not pass on the next round.
