Tickets on sale now! On Saturday July 27th, warm tropical breezes will find their way into the Melting Point when Sons Of Sailors blow in for another Jimmy Buffett Show. "Jimmy Buffett could sue these guys for identity theft," some people have said. So, come out and toss a few boat drinks back while listening to songs you know by heart. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for food and drinks! Sons of Sailors is a Jimmy Buffett Cover Band (affectionately called Bluffett Bands by the Supreme Parrothead himself). Sons Of Sailors is Tony Pritchett, Tim Pritchett, Tony Cason, Kenny Head, David Gould, Tim Newman & Askia Bakari. This group of musicians has been playing music together since the early 1980's. It all started in Athens, GA, where they could play every night in a different club. In its various incarnations, they have opened concerts for Leon Russell, David Allan Coe, John Hartford, Diamond Rio, John Anderson and many more. They have performed on concert stages, cruise liners in the Caribbean, honky tonks in Georgia, North & South Carolinas, Alabama and panhandle palaces in Florida. They have been reverently playing Jimmy Buffett music, mixed with other artists' material and originals, for decades.
Their new CD has that Jimmy Buffett flair. Check it out at their site's Swag Shoppe: http://www.sonsofsailors.com/swagshope.htm
Seasoned with age and a little salt, they continue to deliver great saltwater music. With so many great Buffett songs in their treasure chest, they will give you the best of Parrothead favorites. Tony and his crew will satisfy your appetite with their “All You Can Party Buffett.” The ship sails at 8:30 pm sharp! Visit the band at www.sonsofsailors.com more >>>
