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'd like to thank Steve Mammett and the Embassy Suites for having us back for another great New Year's celebration. It's become a tradition and we always have a fun crowd full of partying Parrotheads. If you'd like to stay the night in one of their beautiful suites next New Year's Eve, you probably ought to make your reservation now! They always sell out, usually by July or August.
This month marks the beginning of our 19th season as The Parrotheads. It's been a wonderful ride so far, and would like to thank all of our friends for all their support over the years. We're looking forward to a wonderful 19th season and many years beyond.
Tuesday February 6th, Garratt, Jim Leslie and Rick Turnage have the extreme pleasure of opening the show for Peter Mayer and his son Brendan Mayer at Harlow's in downtown Sacramento. Peter Mayer has been Jimmy Buffett's lead guitarist for the past 28 years. This will be a wonderful show in an intimate setting. Doors open at 6:00PM. We go on at approximately 6:45 PM. Peter and Brendan will go on immediately after us. If you're a Buffett fan, you're very familiar with this man's guitar playing. He is extremely talented and so is his son. This will be a really good show you won't want to miss.
Plus, remember to come up the hill to Powell's Steamer at 425 Main St. in Placerville, by the Bell Tower, for a solo performance with Garratt on Thursday, March 29th at 6:00PM. And, back by popular demand, The Swamp Honkeys on Saturday, March 31st at 9:00PM. Then, The Naked Parrots on Sunday, April 1st at 1:00PM. All three shows have No Cover charge.
