#1 Tribute Band Agency on the Planet

Adventures in Parrotdise  a tribute to  
Band Bio

Jimmy Buffett is the world’s most famous beach bum. He has marketed his love of Beaches,
Bars, Boats and Ballads into a billion-dollar business. He has sold more albums and filled more
concert venues than most singers. He has written best seller list books and has a string of
successful Margaritaville store/cafes. Buffett’s fans are affectionately known as Parrotheads. They
are found in every demographic and walk of life and are among the most loyal fans in the world.
The tropical appeal and “state of mind” known as Margaritaville exists in all of us. It may be the
lure of the tropics or some other “parrotdise”, wherever, Jimmy’s music can take you there, and so
can this show.

BC has been performing Buffett’s music for almost as long as Buffett himself. He has also traveled
many of the same roads and even played some of the same places Jimmy played on his road to
fortune and fame. He takes the show goer on a musical tour. It’s like an ‘ALL YOU CAN EAT
BUFFETT”. BC sings all the “songs you know by heart” like Come Monday, Cheeseburger in
Paradise, Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, and the national anthem of all Parrotheads,
Margaritaville. He also performs songs Jimmy recorded like Van Morrison’s Brown Eyed Girl, and
the C,S,N&Y’s nautical hit Southern Cross as well as recent hit recordings like his duet with Alan
Jackson, It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere. Jimmy Buffett Coral Reefer Band members and alumni
MITCHELL and ROGER BARTLETT, can be featured in the show, their schedule with Jimmy
permitting, to make this the most credible and authentic Buffett tribute show anywhere. Other
Coral Reefer Band members may appear depending on their tour schedule. According to the
Coral Reefers, “ADVENTURES IN PARROTDISE is the next best thing to being at one of
Jimmy Buffett’s concerts.”
This is the only Jimmy Buffett tribute show to play an indefinite engagement in a main showroom at
a major Las Vegas Hotel/Casino. It is also the first choice for major corporate events at Jimmy
Buffett’s Margaritaville-Las Vegas.

He has spent most of his life entertaining in clubs, lounges, showrooms, concert halls and on cruise ships around the world. He performs as a solo act or with full accompaniment. He began performing in coffeehouses singing folk music when he was 15 in California, Maryland, Florida and New York. He later made his mark in Southern California with the popular rock-a-billy group Black Slacks. He has received many awards including Entertainer of the Year in San Diego, California and was a principal act in a show voted Show of the Year in Reno, NV for 3 years. In 2008, he performed a concert for the opening of the new American Embassy at the historic Brandenburg Gate-Berlin, Germany. He has also performed for The National Governor’s Convention in Biloxi, MS and for many large corporate events.
Since 1990, Barrie performed about 300 dates per year, 2 shows per day, and entertained more than 3 million show-goers. His shows perform in theaters and main casino showrooms and at major corporate events. He is a popular guest on TV talk shows and receives a great deal of news press in the cities where he performs. Although best known for his live performances, he is also a recording artist with several releases. Barrie performs original material as well as songs composed by other artists. Barrie also has extensive experience in entertainment booking, production and showroom/theater operations.
Barrie is probably best known for his incredible tributes to the legendary Neil Diamond and Jimmy Buffett.
