 About the Parrotheads

Beaches, boats, bars and tropical drinks with those colorful little umbrellas. This is what you think of while listening to "Garratt Wilkin & the Parrotheads" performing "A celebration of Jimmy Buffett music."

"Garratt Wilkin & the Parrotheads" are experiencing an expanding popularity while headlining fairs and festivals in not only his own hometown of Placerville, California, but throughout all of the Western United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, and as far away as Florida, Texas, Vermont, Delaware, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Nashville, Tennessee. Garratt and his band have been billed as the #1 Jimmy Buffett tribute band. 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 out of performing for fans that become just as much a part of the show as we are."



Hey Parrotheads!
We had a great time up at the Skagit Valley Casino in Bow, WA! It was great to see some old friends and make some new ones. Their hospitality was amazing as always! We want to send out a special thank you to John Seyler, Valerie Leslie, and Deni Herrmann for their hospitality and all of the fans who came out to the show for making us feel welcome, comfortable and having us back!
