Donny Brewer
“This is who I’ve been all along. Writing and recording island, trop rock, or whatever you wanna call it is natural for me. It’s easy. With other music, I always feel like I could’ve written it better, or done a better production or sang it better. I’m never quite happy with it, ya know. With this music it’s like gravy. I hardly ever do a second vocal take. And it’s like there’s no rules. If I wanna throw in a goofy percussion part or change styles I can do that. It’s my music. It makes me happy. It makes me feel good. And hopefully it’ll do that for other folks too. That would just be the icing on the…or the…lime on the margarita, or something!”

Sunny Jim
"Kick your shoes off, dig your toes in the sand and get into an Island state of mind. You’ve probably heard my music on Jimmy Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville or on one of the online Troprock radio stations across the U.S. With a rockin' guitar, a rhythmic steel drum and backup tracks, I perform my own music and popular covers for events, private parties and house concerts."

Jimmy Parrish & The Waves:

A native Floridian, Jimmy’s one of the Southeast’s most requested headline acts for Parrot Head events. Formed in 2000, Jimmy Parrish & The Waves won northeast Florida’s Next Big Star Competition in 2008. As a result, they were awarded the opportunity to open for Kenny Chesney at the Jacksonville Arena later that year. Representing the Trop Rock genre, you can expect to hear plenty of Buffett tunes, the rockin’ tropical styles of Zac Brown and Chesney, along with three all-original albums influenced by Jimmy’s years of performing on cruise ships, fishing and diving along Florida’s east coast, and traveling the islands of the Bahamas and Caribbean.  Learn More Here

Remembering Jim Morris

"We all are so saddened by the loss of such a fantastic songwriter/musician but more importantly, Jim was a beautiful human being and a dear friend.
He gave so much back to the community. Jim entertained all over the country and had one of the most loyal followings that I have ever seen. No matter where you would go to listen to his awesome music, you would hear hundreds singing along and knowing every word of every song.
God Bless Jim and Sharon Morris for all that they gave to make each one of our lives so much richer.

The Charlotte Harbor Parrot Head Club lost one of our favorites."
