Mark Wood began listening to and playing Jimmy Buffett tunes in the early 1970’s. The stories that Jimmy told in his songs, along with the great melodies, were always very intriguing to Mark. Songs like Margaritaville, A Pirate looks at 40, Pencil Thin Mustache and Tampico Trauma became staples in his solo career.

Seventeen years ago, a friend in the corporate event planning business, needed a  “Jimmy Style” band for an event. This was a chance for Mark to put together the perfect party band. Mark called longtime friend Doug Legacy, formerly of Oingo Boingo and Paul McCartney fame. Together they assembled an incredible rhythm section, then added a cast of versatile sidemen and all of the pieces of this incredible band were in place. A Cajun/Zydeco rhythm section, reggae keyboardist, country guitarist, R&B sax man, a great percussionist and a steel drummer actually taught by Coral Reefer Band Member, Robert Greenidge. This unbelievable combination is what makes Mark Wood and the Parrot Head Band the next best thing to “Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band.”  

Mark Wood and the Parrot Head Band perform a mixture of Calypso, Reggae, Rock and Roll, Country, R&B and Samba/Salsa all true to the partying Jimmy Buffett Style. This is band is the next best thing to Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band.
