|NEWS FLASH: Queen Victoria and her singing Equerry's comeback!
Once more, after an absence of many years, starting with a special event for the Pasadena Playhouse, Janna portrayed Her Royal Majesty. So, if you are hoping to be knighted or make a friend a Dame, plus hear some songs enjoyed by Her Majesty, this is a unique opportunity. In honor of the late Prince Albert, who helped teach her singing while he played his organ, the Queen will pump her own organ while her Equerry sings.*
Click on the image of Her Majesty to see one of her current photographs, taken by her Equerry himself!
* The Queen is not as young as she was. Her reign is long and gives her great pleasure. But a recent knee operation has made playing her old pump organ difficult, So, Her Majesty now plays on a new-fangled electronic keyboard. Ah, how wonderful the work of science. She is amazed but hopes to be back pumping her old, dear organ in the near future!
This is to introduce you to what is designed to be a fun, helpful and informative website based on the adventures of Mallory & McCall (she's Janna McCall, he's Mallory), vintage costumed musical entertainers in the Irish, Pirate, Civil War, Wild West, Victorian, Gay '90s, Holiday, Dickens and loads of other fun and inventive historic and imaginative veins. Some of the photos are especially "vintage," so just add a few lines and grey the hair a bit. We're the same folk, only a bit older. Just a bit!
In addition to who we are and what we do and did, you will find pages here with all kinds of things to enjoy. From vintage art to new works, from poetry to humorous lyrics, from fanstasy to horror--there's a bit of a lot of things to explore. Our site is an omnium-gatherum of things that we like and hope you will, too.
|MEET THE HOME PAGE GOONIES!
These Albatrosses have volunteered to see that you always get back to the Mallory & McCall HOME PAGE, no matter how far into the wilds of the site you venture. Just CLICK on them and you're back!
|CLICK BY CLICK!|
|Mallory & McCall have performed mostly in the Southern California/Greater Los Angeles area at Sea and Tall Ships Festivals, Renaissance, Pirate, Irish, Fantasy and historical gatherings, movie premieres and promotions, private parties from birthdays to banquets, receptions, teas, ice cream socials, pubs, cocktail parties, concerts, weddings, arts and crafts fairs, retirement communities and homes, schools--just about everywhere entertainment can be found. You may well have seen us at the Holidays: Christmas, Fourth of July, Easter Parade, Hallowe'en, President's Day--you name it. We've been performing together 40 years now!
If you are planning an event sometime in the future, we are be back in action after a hiatus do to heath issues. So, we can provide music in the garbed characters you need. All the characters on this site are waiting in the wings to appear for you with a musical act, as greeters or almost anything you might imagine. Hopefully, theses pages will give you an idea of who we are and what we do, and entertain you as well.
This site, and our endevours, are evolving. Now, you can click on, say, "Pirates" (or a Pirate Logo) and see photos of dastardly pirate music from singing buccaneers, read our bios, hear our music (via a link) and get free sheet music and lyrics for our songs. We have made it as easy as we could by including links both as text and via thumbnails throughout the site. Just CLICK and ye shall find!
We've had fun stiring up what has become a Mulligan Stew using what's available in Page Builder, the program offered by our web host. There are bits and pieces remaining from the very first attempts we made just to get online. And then there's what you are seeing now (which still looks a lot like the first attempts--oh well!). At least we're here!
NEW: We are offering a showcase on these pages for artists, poets, cartoonists, lyricists, songwriters (in leadsheet format) and other creative folk who would like to present their work in a new format. You can share your talents and maybe (we have no contacts, but who knows who reads this) you might get a whopping comission ;>}' At least you'll delight people with your work. If you would like a page on our site featurning your creations, email us.
The CD KINGS OF THE SEA, our all Pirate album, is once again available -but a ROUGH DRAFT SAMPLER CD consisting of six fun songs (almost a half hour of music--just like the old LPs) is out and ready for you to make it your own. As very few are being "burned," it's sure to be a collector's item you can't pass up. Only $10 and we pay the shipping. See more under "Books and CDs."
And Then We Wrote...and Re-Wrote...,The Book, is sadly now out of print. Those who bought if fournd all sorts of things we have written and/or adapted, including songs of Pirates, Werewolves, Mummies, Ren-fairies, Spacemen and women, sorcery, more Pirates, and all sorts of other droll, eclectic folks. It is an ideal source of unique material for the Musical Entertainer, but non-musical folks will enjoy it as well for its 40 years of images, poems by Mallory and loads of off-the-wall commentary. Read all about it under BOOKS. You won't find another book like it unless we write a sequel! CURRENTLY OUT OF PRINT, but you will find some of the music on these pages..
So go ahead--CLICK ON SOMETHING! Most of the buttons, titles, pictures and thumbnails actually work! And as you explore, you'll find some surprises, like vintage sheet music covers, fantasy art and loads of photos from past and present.
