Celebrate at Parrot Party on Thursday in Calabash

-A A +A

It’s a Parrot Party at 6:30 p.m. this Thursday, June 20, at the first summer concert of the season in Calabash.

The concert featuring Jimmy Buffett duo Parrot Party is at 1572 Thomasboro Road at the corner of N.C. 179 in downtown Calabash.

Parrot Party of Carolina Shores is a Jimmy Buffett tribute and impersonation show band performing all of Jimmy’s “songs you know by heart.”

Parrotheads all over North Carolina and South Carolina have been “phlocking” to see this duo since early 2012. The musicians are Buffett impersonator Randy Knight and seasoned pro harmonica player Doug Cayton.

In the early 1980s, Cayton played with the band Mother Lode and in the early ‘90’s with the Soul Daddies, whose band Nantucket was recently inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.

After retiring from over 30 years in business, Randy Knight set out to fulfill a lifelong desire to put this all together. After meeting Cayton in late 2011, the show became reality.

Parrot Party is all about having fun and connecting with your “Island State of Mind.”

Fins up, Parrotheads.
