Smorgaschord draws its name from ancient runic inscriptions of abundant food and music, the combination of which may lead to harmonic indigestion. We entertain at events around the Peninsula, including summer festivals, coffee shops, rehab centers, and occasionally, the checkout line of supermarkets. We could be right behind you in line. Look for the shoppers with a wide variety of musical styles and poorly-balanced nutritional choices. Hey, where did you find that bacon-flavored chocolate? Follow us on Facebook or Twitter and get your shopping cart harmonized.

| The Pillage People
Avast, me hearties! We be The Pillage People of Portland, Oregon. We sailed all the way here to sing, fight, talk like pirates, and attempt to steal the Prize they say be here, guarded only by a small team of judges. Be forewarned, for tonight ye'll hear original pirate songs, parody covers, bad jokes, and even worse pirate jokes. Those among ye of a certain respectable age, with a sharp eye (or two, if ye're lucky!), might observe that our crew bears a passing familiarity with a group once known around these parts as Strangers In Harmony. Tis merely a coincidence, I'm sure.
