The first night of this year’s Sunset Series is less than a month away and we are thrilled to share what we have in store. In honor of the life and legacy of Jimmy Buffett, we thought it would only be fitting to kick off this summer-time series off with a tribute to the “Margaritaville” singer with Mark Wood and the Parrot Head Band on June 20.

Mark Wood has been playing Jimmy Buffett’s music since 1976, with the Parrot Head Band playing together since 1999. They opened for Buffett at the Verizon Amphitheater and have played with Coral Reefer Band members. When asked about the band’s performance at Sunset Series, Mark Wood shared: 

“It’s a wonderful way to begin to come to grips with Jimmy’s passing; all of us together, singing and reliving Jimmy’s stories. What I have come to realize is that even though Jimmy’s not here with us in body, his spirit lives on in the legacy of his stories, his songs and in each and every one of us who have loved, lived and experienced them in our own personal way!” 

Jimmy Buffett’s music is filled with lyrics about enjoying the best parts of life. Mark Wood and Parrot Head Band plans to finish their set with an encore of Jimmy’s “Lovely Cruise,” the perfect send-off.  

Start summer with a drink in our Garden paradise and a tribute to Jimmy Buffett. The night will also include specialty food and drink items to fit the theme including Margaritas and Come Thursday Jerk Chicken Tacos.
