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!
Last Saturday at High Hill Ranch was a really fun time!!! Thank you to all who came out to the Opening Day there. We want to send a special thank you to Jerry and Michelle Visman, and Stephenie Tillman for having us and we hope to be back next year. High Hill Ranch in Camino is officially open and Apple Hill Season has now started!
September 5th, we will be back at The Embassy Suites at 100 Capitol Mall in Sacramento, CA with special guest Jim Morris! Jim is from Punta Gorda, Florida and has a style that "mixes a whimsical island sound with a splash of Texas to produce a sound that is uniquely Gulf and Western. " He tours with the Big Bamboo Band and continues to write songs that tell stories. We met him last year when he performed and sat in with us and is down to earth and very entertaining. Showtime is 7:00 pm and is free to the public. Come join us on the patio at Tower Bistro located at Embassy Suites in Old Sacramento for the Labor Day Weekend Show as we celebrate the end of summer!
Sunday, September 6th, we will be up at Findleton Winery at 3500 Carson Road in Camino! Showtime is 2:30 pm. There will be lots to do up there and great food for sale as well! Bring your lawn chair and get your spot early! It looks like all the wineries in the complex will be open that day for you to wander into!
Saturday, September 19th, we will be at a fundraiser in Porterville, CA. Stay tuned for more details on this event!
