 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!
Helwig Winery was magic in the making with a sold out crowd, great BBQ, beautiful venue, amazing staff and so much more! The fans there were incredible, reaching deep into their pockets to help victims of the Sand Fire that ravaged the area in July and early August. Thank you so much to the Helwig family, Jim Ashen and his crew for our fabulous stage and lights, Billy Bones BBQ for the wonderful food and the taste tests some of the band got to experience behind the scenes and the incredible staff at Helwig Winery for having us at your beautiful venue!
