One of the most loyal and dedicated fan bases in music history are the fans of Jimmy Bu!ett, a!ectionately known as the Parrot Heads . The legendary history of how this amazing sub- culture came to be will now be told in the original 90-minute documentary Parrot Heads.
Directed by Bryce Wagoner, the "lm chronicles the birth of the movement when a young musician named Scott Nickerson, a big fan of Bu!ett s music, decided to put an ad in a local paper to corral any Bu!ett fans in the Atlanta area for a get together. What began as a small group of friends that would hang out on weekends has now grown into a worldwide organization known as Parrot Heads In Paradise, which promotes the message party with a purpose and has raised more than 40 million dollars in charity donations.
Traversing the globe from Key West to Paris, Costa Rica to California, the international phenomenon is greater than ever and has even sparked its own genre of music, Trop Rock (short for Tropical Rock). Featuring never before seen interviews with Jimmy Buffett himself.

Jeff Pike's new CD "Back To Basics" is the culmination of a late blooming dream and a brand new start. "Back To Basics" also stands as testimony to the fact that no matter what happens in life or how old you are it is never too late to get back up and follow another dream.
Best known as the lead singer and founder of A1A - The Official and Original Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show, (www.a1a-live.com) Jeff has wrestled for over 20 years to reconcile his long lasting success, and excess in A1A with his inner struggle of true self and heart. In January of 2010 Jeff entered into a recovery program. The years since have been filled with emotional and physical pain, self-awareness, and much spiritual and personal growth. However there was always a guiding light and Jeff now has a different story to tell. Well into his 4th year of sobriety, Jeff is happy, healthy and has returned to what motivated him so many years ago before he got swept away into Margaritaville - playing his own music, his way, with just his guitar, voice and piano.
Released on October 13, 2013 and entitled, "Back To Basics," it is just that. Jeff has stripped away everything that clouded his musical creativity and offers you his musical soul as it is today. The music offered here is intensely personal, yet also filled with some humor, reflection, happiness and hope for the future.
