Jimmy Buffett tribute band Parrots of the Caribbean will give two performances, at 6 and 9 p.m., Friday, Aug. 28, at the Rehoboth Beach Theatre of the Arts, 20 Baltimore Ave. in Rehoboth Beach. The popular Dayton, Ohio band is known as the No. 1 Buffett tribute band throughout the United States and Canada.
Lead singer Dave Albrecht has developed an uncanny likeness to Buffett in both looks and sound. Albrecht also does a mean Elwood Blues impersonation. About 20 years ago he and a nine-piece band were signed with Legends in Concert in Las Vegas. He fashioned his harmonica style after Greg “Fingers” Taylor, formerly of Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band.
Jeff Cline plays lead and rhythm guitars, as well as providing lead and backing vocals. Jeff has played with bands such as Renegade, Midnight Highway and J.D. Cline. He has opened for such acts as Eddie Rabbit, John Conley, David Alan Coe and Hank Williams III.ĺŽźĺ¸–ĺś°ĺť€: Jimmy Buffett Info http://www.buffettinfo.com/delaware-phlockers/519-jimmy-buffett-tribute-band-appear-aug-28-rehoboth.html#post607
Throughout his career, he has played rock, blues, fusion, funk, country and pop.
Keyboard player Kenny Rice has been playing music since he was 8 years old, and he was trained classically. He was a member and music director of Up With People, a founding member of the progressive rock band Flyweil and performed with the Dayton, Ohio-based rock band The Hathaways for 15 years. He has appeared on “The Tonight Show” and HBO, and has opened for such artists as Edgar Winter, Cheap Trick, Tower of Power, Eddie Money, Rich Little, George Carlin, Michael Bolton and Willlie Nelson.
Gary Rigmaiden is a seasoned bassist, guitarist and songwriter who has been playing professionally for 25 years. He was born in Lake Charles, La., and spent a portion of his youth living in Spain and Brazil.
He says that living there made it easy to understand the philosophy and musical approach of Buffett. The island songs of the sea, bayou themes and beachcomber blues make him feel right at home. Rigmaiden was a founding member of the progressive rock band Arch Rival, which has five albums to its credit.
Greg Martin, drums and vocals, has been playing professionally for 34 years. He was also a founding member of Arch Rival. He has performed with The Menus, Jake and Elwood’s Blues Review, Groove Therapy, Voodoo Stew and Eric Hilgaford.
Tickets for Parrots of the Caribbean are $30, and $54 for the dinner show. Along with timeless Buffett tunes, the band will perform songs from its newly released CD, “Cool Bayou.” To read more about the band, visit Parrots of the Caribbean Band
