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."

This will be our huge End of Season bash at Swabbies on the River. It's always a party to remember (if you can), but this year will be especially memorable, because we're shooting our first band video and having a Parrothead Costume Contest for cash prizes!  Be there for this once-in-a-lifetime event!!!

Well, it's August and it's hot... BUT, just like in the islands when the beautiful trade winds blow, we've been cooled off almost every evening by a gorgeous delta breeze!!! It's been awesome to kick off the half-melted flip-flops, relax in the hammock with a margarita and let the night breeze wash over us!
If you love gumbo (and, who doesn't right?) mark your calendar for September 9th! We'll be playing at the Crawfish & Catfish Food & Music Festival at the Yolo County Fairgrounds in Woodland, CA! We're on the Bourbon Street Stage for 2 shows at 4:30 and 6:30! You'll find all things Louisiana when you come. Jambalaya, Alligator, Crawfish and Catfish are just a few of the edible wonders you'll find here. Adult beverages, dance lessons, face painting and tons of fun stuff for the kids, too. You really don't want to miss this one!!!
September 15th we're on the road to beautiful Laguna Beach for a private event.
Then, we jump on a plane and come back home on Saturday September 16th to play a free "Concert on the Green" at Lennar Heritage park in El Dorado Hills at 4:00 PM! This family friendly event will be our second one there. The nice folks at Lennar put on a great event with treats, tours of gorgeous model homes and community amenities, and your favorite Jimmy Buffett tribute band... The Parrotheads!!!!
In October, all you Arizona Parrotheads polish up your dressy flip flops and join us at the Arizona State Fair on October 14th. We'll have more details as we get a little closer to the date.
