Sail on Jimmy Buffett

The Palmetto Parrot Head Club is sad to hear of the passing of Jimmy Buffett. Jimmy’s family posted an announcement on Instagram:

Inspired by Jimmy’s story telling the Palmetto Parrot Head Club was founded in 1997. Many of us will shed a tear today over his passing but I believe those tears will be followed by a thousand smiles. Each of us remembering the stories we could tell of the adventures Jimmy’s lyrics have given each us.

If you ever wonder why you ride the carousel
You do it for the stories you can tell – Jimmy Buffett

On behalf of everyone who has ever been a PPHC member, we send our deepest condolences to Jimmy’s family, friends and our fellow Parrotheads across the globe. Sail on Jimmy Buffett.

Our lives change like the weather
But a legend never dies – Jimmy Buffett

Help support our Trop-Rock performers during the pandemic – Buy a Trop Rock Strong T-Shirt

Hello Parrotheads,

Now that the incredible MOTM line up is out…check out the list of great performers coming our (your) way….and register today!!!  BUT…right now, many of them are out of work and the gigs are their only source of income. So while you party at home, how about helping this purpose?  

If you are a Facebook person…a great way to help out is finding Quarantine Concerts (featuring most of our MOTM musical acts and more) and on their websites for private shows.  They almost all have virtual tip jars for their shows. (Peter Mayer is doing a charity show Friday also…check it out!)

Also….if you remember the Hurricane shirts from a few years ago, they were designed by Kristin McFadden for Lone Palm and she is helping again with a new shirt to help the musicians!  You can buy a shirt and after the cost of the shirt and shipping are taken out…every penny will go to the musicians in need (much like Lone Palm!)…OR…you can simply donate and the money will get there also! (I know, many of us don’t need another shirt, but we need our music!)

This is a great way to show some love to our musicians who support us!  Check out the details below if you choose!  Just some options to get you through this thing! Stay in and stay safe my phriends!

Trop Rock Strong t-shirts are now available! 

This is a great way to support our favorite musicians during this trying time!   Proceeds to benefit the TRMA Artist Relief Fund. Please show your support to all the trop rock performers/song-writers who have lost income due to cancelled shows. Mens and Ladies available. $30. Delivery in about a week.

Please follow this link to order and pay through PayPal (at the top or bottom of the order form). 😎

Thank you for your support! 

Fins Up!
