Bedfordshire’s favourite Sea Shanty Crew!

We are the Sloop Groggy Dogs

We are a male voice group singing songs of the sea, folk and drinking songs, and of course lively shanties. We are based in Bedfordshire  and are all seasoned singers in various other choirs and ensembles. Our regular gatherings and performances give us opportunity to indulge our male fascination with tales of the high seas bringing you Adventure, Peril and Regret, from whence, in our humble opinion, all song is born!

Please contact us on the email above, if you think we can add a bit of daring-do to your event!

We love to sing for charity events!
