Sharky and Bones are the names of the two pirate musicians for the Disney Junior animated series Jake and the Never Land Pirates. The duo (voiced by Loren Hoskins and Kevin Hendrickson with Jeff Bennett providing his animated speaking voice), also known as "The Never Land Pirate Band", were members of a family-oriented "pirate rock" band in Portland, Oregon called "Captain Bogg and Salty".
Their involvement with Disney began in 2009 when Bobs Gallaway, creator and executive producer of the series, was looking for good music to listen to for the pilot. Hoskins and Hendrickson were introduced shortly afterward to Disney Television Animation executive vice president of music Jay Stutler, and they agreed to be the musical directors, writing the theme music as well as additional songs for the series. Hoskins is an actor by trade, while Hendrickson was working in the City of Portland as a web devloper when Disney came in and gave them the chance to perform. Later, it was decided by Gallaway and his team they would work as an animated "Greek Chorus" for Captain Hook and Mr. Smee.
The duo have made promotional appearances for the show, including appearances at Disney's Hollywood Studios and the biannual D23 Expo in Anaheim.
Sharky and Bones also attended the 20th Annual Festival of Lights Parade in Chicago.
Puppet versions of their animated selfs can be seen in Disney Junior Live at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure.
