A1A Buffett Tribute at Amp July 22

The Jimmy Buffett tribute show, A1A, will bring the music and fun of the legendary songwriter and performer to the Amp, Saturday, July 22 at 8pm.

The band was formed in 1991 when lead vocalist and guitarist Jeff Pike asked Atlanta Parrot Head Club founder, drummer and harmonica player, Scott Nickerson to join him in his already successful one-man tribute to Jimmy Buffett. In 1992, the band won a Jimmy Buffett Sound Alike Contest for Margaritaville Records.

A1A repeatedly headlined the annual Jimmy Buffett Meeting of The Minds Parrot Head Convention and took part in Buffett’s video Fruitcakes. In 1995, Pike appeared on stage with Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band in Atlanta, performing Cheeseburger in Paradise for a radio show which still receives regular airplay on Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville Radio. Members of Buffett’s band, Greg “Fingers” Taylor, Mac McAnally, Michael Utley, Robert Greenidge, Peter Mayer, Nadirah Shakoor and Tina Gullickson have all performed with the band over the years.

The band has released five CDs and backed Nadirah Shakoor to help promote her Mailboat Records release, Nod To The Story Teller.  

In 2012, the band appeared in the motion picture, What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Their recording of Jimmy’s classic, Why Don’t We Get Drunk was included in the movie and on the Capitol Records soundtrack. In 2016, A1A backed Buffett and Mac McAnally during a private performance at The Masters Open in Augusta.
