Jimmy Buffett is the worldâs 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. Buffettâs 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 âstate of mindâ known as Margaritaville exists in all of us. It may be the
lure of the tropics or some other âparrotdiseâ, wherever, Jimmyâs music can take you there, and so
can this show.
BC has been performing Buffettâs 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. Itâs like an âALL YOU CAN EAT
BUFFETTâ. BC sings all the âsongs you know by heartâ 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 Morrisonâs Brown Eyed Girl, and
the C,S,N&Yâs nautical hit Southern Cross as well as recent hit recordings like his duet with Alan
Jackson, Itâs 5 Oâclock Somewhere. Jimmy Buffett Coral Reefer Band members and alumni
MIKE UTLEY, ROBERT GREENIDGE, DOYLE GRISHAM, AMY LEE, FINGERS TAYLOR, TC
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, âADVENTURES IN PARROTDISE is the next best thing to being at one of
Jimmy Buffettâs concerts.â
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
Buffettâs Margaritaville-Las Vegas.
NOT A PARROTHEAD? YOU WILL BE WHEN THIS CRUISE IS OVER. FINS UP!
