Beaches, boats, bars & tropical drinks with those little umbrellas. That is what you think of while watching and listening to "Garratt Wilkin & the Parrotheads" performing "A Celebration of Jimmy Buffett's Music".

Garratt Wilkin & The Parrotheads have headlined fairs and festivals throughout Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, Utah, Nashville (Tennessee) and as far away as Anchorage (Alaska), Maui (Hawaii), as well as the Eastern seaboard and as close as his home town of Placerville, CA. Their popularity is expanding throughout North America.

Garratt and his band have been billed as the #1 Jimmy Buffett tribute band in the nation. Garratt says, "Traveling with 'The Parrotheads' is a great way to meet Jimmy Buffett fans and to make new 'Parrothead' friends. We get such a kick performing for fans that become just as much a part of the show as we are."

Since their initial transformation from Garratt Wilkin & The Whiskey Ducks to Garratt Wilkin & The Parrotheads, exclusively performing Jimmy Buffett music, the Parrotheads have performed as a six-piece "core" band and up to as large as a 13 piece band including Steel Drums, Horn Section, Harmonica and Pedal Steel Guitar. Garratt was quoted as saying, "Performing with the big band gives us the closest representation of the Coral Reefers and creates the look, feel and sound of being at a Jimmy Buffett concert."

Hey Parrotheads!
We want to thank everyone who came out to The Findleton Estate and Winery for Mother's Day - a great time was had by all - the rainy weather cleared up just in time for the concert! A very special thank you to all of the staff at the winery complex and our friends and fans who came out!
It is with great and profound sadness that we announce that one of our former members of The Parrotheads and The Whiskey Ducks and longtime friend, Pat (Dusty) Slabaugh, who played drums and harmonica, lost his battle with cancer this past Sunday, May 15th. An avid musician and pool player, Dusty was an extremely funny man, finding the humor in almost any situation and could make you laugh until your sides hurt with his quick wit. Dusty played live music with Garratt for many, many years and the two of them had many funny stories about each other and their adventures. There is a huge void in our hearts as we say goodbye to our dear friend. As he sails on to join other members we've lost, we send our deepest condolences to Dusty's family. Sail On Dusty!
