It’s almost summer time and nothing more evocatively describes this season than the music of Jimmy Buffett. Bring out your multi-hued Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, palm tree topped sombreros, lawn flamingoes and join us on our lawn for care-free “Lounge at the Lagoon” atmosphere. The music is guaranteed to be electrifying. Self-indulge and allow for a late evening sunset to evade all life’s obligations. Let the rhythmical beats remind you of pounding waves under a cerulean sky. Grab your lawn chairs and blankets or reserve tables up front and personal; bring picnics and beverages of choice, cut up some limes and ENJOY this high energy musical extravaganza. Celebrate with the intensity of a Parrot Head and you will find no stranger in sight. It will be an evening to remember. Bring your pineapple and Caribbean state of mind!

A1A was first formed in 1991 by band member Jeff Pike, who had already developed an enormous following in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, with his one man, first of its kind tribute to Jimmy Buffett. In 1992 Jeff and A1A won a Margaritaville Records-sponsored Jimmy Buffett Sound Alike Contest. As the first band ever to showcase a high-energy 4-hour concert composed of nothing except Buffett’s best songs spanning every era of his career, A1A became the only Tribute Band personally sanctioned by Jimmy Buffett. While countless other bands have followed in A1A’s wake and cited them as their main inspiration, A1A remains the first and foremost Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show. Period!
