Adventures in Parrotdise - A tribute band
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 Parrot Heads. 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.
Barrie Cunningham (BC) has been performing Jimmy 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 is joined by lead guitarist and the original Jimmy Buffett Coral Reefer Band member, Roger Bartlett. 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 Parrot Heads, Margaritaville. He also performs songs Jimmy covered like Van Morrison’s Brown Eyed Girl, and the C,S & N’s nautical hit Southern Cross as well as more recent hit recordings like his duets with Alan Jackson, It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere and Zac Brown, Knee Deep.
Jimmy Buffett Coral Reefer Band members and alumni MIKE UTLEY, ROBERT GREENIDGE, DOYLE GRISHAM, AMY LEE, FINGERS TAYLOR, TC MITCHELL and others can be featured in the show, depending on their tour schedule with Jimmy, to make this the most credible and authentic Buffett tribute show anywhere. According to the Coral Reefers, “ADVENTURES IN PARROTDISE is the next best thing to being at one of Jimmy Buffett’s concerts.”
Brother Tom Cunningham, CMA award winning fiddle/mandolin/guitar player also performs in many AIP shows.
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.
NOT A PARROT HEAD? YOU WILL BE WHEN THIS CRUISE IS OVER. FINS UP!
