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."
