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!
Ahoy, Mates! We had a fantastic time shooting our video at Swabbies, a week ago Sunday! It was a little windy at first, but it wound up being a perfect day. The Parrothead Costume Contest was a huge success. Tons of folks came out in costume, and the winners' costumes were very creative. All the costumes were awesome. It must've been really hard to choose the winners. A BIG thank you to all who dressed up and participated in the contest. And, a HUGE thank you to Doug Thomas and Bob Keller of 96.9 FM The Eagle for coming out and emceeing and judging the contest. We'll let everyone know when the video is available.
Well, you can feel it in the air, especially in the morning or evening. Our precious Summer is starting to give way to Fall. So, we're going where it's Summer all year long. That's right, we're heading to Arizona for a quick road trip! We'll be in Lake Havasu this Friday Oct. 13th at the Javelina Cantina 1420 N. McCulloch Blvd. Lake Havasu, AZ from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The high will be 89 degrees. Hello Summer!
Then, Saturday Oct 14th we'll be playing two shows at the Arizona Exposition & State Fair, located at 1826 W. McDowell Rd. Phoenix, AZ, at 5:30 PM and 8:30 PM. You gotta love the State Fair! The exhibits, the rides, the music, and all the different varieties of food! Come out and see your favorite Jimmy Buffett Tribute band, while enjoying a beer and an egg roll on a stick!
Then, on Sunday Oct. 15th we'll be at the Flying X Saloon 2030 McCulloch Blvd. Lake Havasu, AZ. Performing with us will be special Guest Artist Jill Trenholm & the Boyfriends, from 5:00 to 6:00 PM. We'll play after them from 6:30 to 9:00 PM. The high will be 84 degrees. Break out the suntan lotion!
So, all you Southern Nevada, Arizona, and SoCal Parrotheads make plans to come out and see us! We'd sure love to see you there!
