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."
The weather is turning colder and the holidays are fast approaching. Garratt Wilkin & The Parrotheads hope you have a great Thanksgiving filled with great food, family and friends!

" They're closin' down the hangout
The air is turnin' cool
They're shuttin' off the superslide
The kids are back in school
The tourist traps are empty
Almost like it used to be
Before the circus came to town
That's when it always happens
Same time every year
I come down to talk to me
When the coast is clear"
