Live music can set the mood on a cruise and overpower the sound of curse words that whales have incorporated into their songs after centuries of hanging out with sailors. Take in less salty tunes with this GrouponLive deal.

The Waterboys

  • The Waterboys sound: intentionally hard to peg, as founder, singer, and songwriter Mike Scott loves to play with genres, but the word "lovely" suits them fine
  • The number of musicians who have performed live as a Waterboy: over 70
  • The number of years since The Waterboys have toured North America: 6
  • What's changed in that time: they've released the poetry-fueled An Appointment with Mr. Yeats and are planning to drop another album in 2014
  • How Mike Scott and fiddler Steve Wickham tour the States: with an American version of the usually UK-based band
  • Why Scott does that: the American lineup is rock solid, and work visas are expensive and not fun
  • Where you've heard "Fisherman's Blues": in Good Will Hunting, Waking Ned Devine, and every time a maritime man finds the mermaid of his dreams
  • Other tunes you're likely to hear: the rollicking, piano-heavy "A Girl Called Johnny" and the swooning ode to astronomy "The Whole of the Moon"
