The Parrottroupers are a 4 or 5 piece Buffett tribute band , with the Island sound in mind ! when you set sail with us, fun is the destination, heading out on a course to that One particular harbor with the village of Margaritaville on the beach. And with our goofy crew you never know where you just might end up ! All of us in the band are seasoned musicians . in other words, adult 4 year olds !!!!!
We present fun in our whole show, from a 1 1/2 up to 4 hrs, depending on the venue and the services needed. Also at times we get the audience involved in helping out on a few songs, playing some percussion toys and singing along on stage with us .
From limbo contests,to conga lines, and maybe even that hula hoop contest, then we're the band for you. If your hoping to get to Hawaii, or Tahiti one day, then why wait? With us you'll be drinking a margarita in no time !!!
