Music: Rockin' Ron the Friendly Pirate releases videos

Cap'n Jack Sparrow he ain't. But as marauding swashbucklers go, Jeffersonville's Rockin' Ron the Friendly Pirate does have a certain dashing, if hokey, charm about him. With his debut DVD, Lights ... Camera ... RRR! Music Videos by Rockin' Ron the Friendly Pirate, the local children's entertainer and would-be picaroon offers a video companion to his 2010 CD, Give Me an RRR! The 10 songs here are culled from that rollicking album and, despite egregious overuse of the "RRR!" thing, comprise a genial collection of tunes that should amuse young buccaneers and keep parents from turning to Captain Morgan on repeated — and repeated and repeated — viewings. The DVD's spare production value may seem waterlogged compared to slicker releases from, say, Raffi. But if the eye-patch-wearing, sabre-rattling kids dancing a jig in the crowd are any indication, Rockin' Ron's silly shanties are indeed seaworthy.
