 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!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! We hope you are all enjoying your winter break and the time you have with friends and family!
Saturday, December 31st, join us at the Embassy Suites for our 7th Annual Rockin' New Year's Eve! We will be in the indoor lobby/courtyard of the Embassy Suites located at 100 Capitol Mall in Sacramento! The show is free to the public, with fireworks shows at 9:00 and midnight to ring in 2017! The rooms are sold out at the hotel for the event, but everyone is welcome to attend our show from 9:00 pm to midnight!
It is with profound sadness that we let you know that our dear friend, Jennifer McClintock, aka Jennifer Foxx, Program Director and On Air Personality from Star 92.9 FM in Burlington, VT, lost her courageous battle with pancreatic cancer on December 10th at the very young age of 50. Jenn was instumental in bringing Garratt Wilkin & The Parrotheads to the East Coast for the Lake Champlain Concert Cruises for several years and never missed a concert, being a noticeable presence on the concert barge, along with her husband. She was an incredibly genuine and fun loving lady who maintained her friendships with all of us long after the concert series ended and was a beloved radio personality in the Burlington, Vermont area. We send our deepest condolences to her husband Brian and 3 young daughters, Holly, Celia and Mary. To honor our late friend, Jennifer, we will be auctioning off an Epiphone guitar, signed by the members of Garratt Wilkin & The Parrotheads at The Embassy Suites, on New Year's Eve in Sacramento, CA or you can make a donation directly into the jar we will have set up for her that night. All proceeds will be sent to Jennifer's family as a heartfelt donation toward her overwhelming medical and final expenses.
We are currently booking our 18th season – stay tuned – we have some exciting new adventures to share and some of our recurring favorites. Always check the calendar we may be coming to a venue near you!
As 2016 comes to a close, we hope that you are having a wonderful Holiday season and, as always, we thank you, our fans, for all the support that you give us throughout the year. We hope you have a great 2017!!
