About us

The Northeast Buccaneers come prepared to entertain "kids" of all ages.

The Northeast Buccaneers are a pirate entertainment group. We bridge the gap between movie style pirates and historical reenactors. Our focus is non-profit and community based events, with a passion for helping small businesses grow and entertaining the public. We are also available for private functions, campground themed entertainment, family based carnivals and fairs, as well as other types of events. Complete with many styles of pirates, live birds, and a historical edge of storytelling and teaching.



Captain Jay Tucci

Captain Jay Tucci has a passion for piracy and the history behind it.  He has a talent for energizing the stories and histories of pirate lore into his conversation, and a passion to teach those young and old about how the life of a pirate was. 

An amputee at age 16, he can be seen sporting his authentic wooden peg leg, along with his fine feathered friend, Sky, on his shoulder.  Captain Jay will challenge the young and old to sword training, create colorful balloon swords, and throw parents into the Pillory on a whim.


Quartermaster nick

Quartermaster Nick is right hand to the Captain and the voice of the crew.  The Quartermaster and the Captain have been a crew long before any other, and Nick has been loyal to the mission since day one. 

His large stature and strong arms have kept the crew safe, and his wild eye for creative thinking has helped to keep the crew happy and the treasure aboard safe.  The Quartermaster has the ability to make the ladies sway like the waves of the ocean, all while keeping a stern command on deck and ensuring the course is set.  As quartermaster’s come, he is as important to the Northeast Buccaneers as the Captain himself, and without him the group would fall  to mutiny.



Tiki is a macaw from the southern isles, and the most faithful feathered friends to the crew of the Northeast Buccaneers.  This Blue and Gold Macaw can be temperamental, but is overly friendly on most days.  Many days she can be seen on the shoulders of the crew, and occasionally visit with patrons to sit on their shoulders or arms for pictures.  She is very well behaved and loves to be pet and talked to.


Cabin Boy Riley

Cabin Boy Riley became a pirate at the mere age of 10 and has been one since.  He can be seen roaming events, helping to gather supplies for the crew, or manning the table of pirate goods! 

Riley is brave and honorable, and can hold his own in a sword fight.  He once saved the Captains life and since has been rewarded many treasures for his efforts.  A little shy at times, Riley will converse with younger pirates and help get them excited for joining the pirate crew.

Mermaid Fay

The mermaid is a legendary creature of the sea.  Known to swim up to ships and lure sailors off into the waters where they take them to the depths of the ocean to keep them as their own.  Mermaids are told in many variations, both as tricksters of the sea, and as omens and signs of things to come.  Some legends tell that mermaids would warn the sailors of impending storms or rocks to avoid, while other stories tell how they guarded treasure or entrance pirates with their beauty.  Which story do you believe? 


Mate mysty

On a large ship there was usually more than one Mate aboard. The Mate served as apprentice to the Ship's Master, Boatswain, Carpenter and Gunner. They took care of the fitting out of the vessel, and examined whether it was sufficiently provided with ropes, pulleys, sails, and all the other rigging that was necessary for the voyage. The Mate took care of hoisting the anchor, and during a voyage they checked the tackle once a day. If they observed anything amiss, they would report it to the ship's Master. Arriving at a port, the mate caused the cables and anchors to be repaired, and took care of the management of the sails, yards and mooring of the ship. 



I would recommend the troop of pirates form Northeast Buccaneers in a heart beat - have worked with them here at the iHeartMedia radio stations as well as for non-profit events like Sail Portsmouth. This team is top notch, reliable and professional. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

I can’t begin to tell you how cool it was to have you and your crew on deck for this year’s party. Everyone LOVED what you did and how you did it and it was definitely one of our best parties in no small part because of you guys (and gals). We sold more than twice as many day-of-show tickets than usual, which has to have something to do with your efforts to round folks up and keep them around. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

One of a kind is all I can say! I have hired many different character companies over the years and the Northeast Buccaneers are by far the best.

You guys did an amazing job and definitely made Silas’ Wish.
— Denise, NH Make-A-Wish
Yo, pirates! I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your presence at the Portland Tall Ships event. I think that between the stilt-walkers, the pirates, and the chantey singers, we really set the atmosphere for the event. Apart from that, we got a huge kick out of singing with you, and we look forward to working, and singing, with you again.
— Norris, Roll & Go
You guys were amazing!!! Thank you for your hard work and making the day a huge success!
— Kim, Exeter PTO
They added a big dimension to Sail Portsmouth this year, and my kids had a blast interacting with them. From the “Pirate Princess Jewelry” my daughter loved to wooden (or balloon swords) swordplay for my son!
