VELCRO PYGMIES

Join us on Friday, October 2nd as Southern Roots presents

The Velcro Pygmies (9 pm Show)


The World Famous Velcro Pygmies want to take you on a little journey, and they promise it won't hurt. This golden ticket will get you a trip back to a time when music was in its prime. Back when hair was big but rock 'n' roll was bigger … back when a 17-second guitar solo transformed a man and his machine into a Rock God … back when fallen angels swarmed the front row like Aquanet to a feathered bang.

The Velcro Pygmies travel the country year round - from the Gulf Shores to the Great Lakes - to share the sights, sounds and stain-washed denim of the glorious '80s, schooling audiences on the difference between a rock band and a rock show. From start to finish, they command the stage with a prowess uncommon in today's industry, and they leave you begging for more. No gimmicks or tricks, just undiluted rock 'n' roll energy that unites every race, creed, age and gender.

The Velcro Pygmies are more than just a band - they are a way of life. They're a nitro-fueled Trans Am prowling the streets at dusk, looking for some action - satisfaction all night. They ain't looking for nothing but a good time, and it don't get better than this.

Doors open at 9:00 pm Show, 21+ only

A1A - the Jimmy Buffet Tribute Show

Join us on Friday, October 23rd as Southern Roots presents

A1A - the Jimmy Buffet Tribute Show
A1A – The Official and Original Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show was born in 1991 when Lead Vocalist and Guitarist, Jeff Pike asked Atlanta Parrot Head Club and PHIP Founder, 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 and the A1A ball started rolling – a ball that is still rolling 28 years later.

Over the years as the band grew A1A was extremely instrumental in the fundamental building and growth of the International Parrot Head Club community and the Trop Rock Music genre as it is today. They were the first band to repeatedly headline the annual Jimmy Buffett “Meeting of The Minds” Parrot Head Convention and many more landmark national annual Parrot Head Events which formed the building blocks for the Parrot Head Nation as it is today.

In 1994, A1A and The Atlanta Parrot Head Club were invited to take part of Jimmy's new video, 'Fruitcakes', which was filmed at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

In 1995, Jeff won a guitar competition, and that allowed him to appear on stage with Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band in Atlanta, Georgia, performing 'Cheeseburger in Paradise.' The entire show, including Jeff's performance, was recorded for the 'Jimmy Buffett - Barometer Soup Radio Special,' which still receives regular airplay on Jimmy Buffett's 'Radio Margaritaville Radio.'

A1A has released 5 CD’s , played to countless high profile clients around the world and continue to draw record crowds to their public performances. Members from Jimmy 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. In 2009 Nadirah Shakoor chose A1A to be her back up band to help promote her Mailboat Records Release, ‘Nod To The Story Teller.’ In 2012, Jimmy Buffett was instrumental in landing A1A in the Lions Gate Major Motion Picture Release, ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting.’ The band recorded Jimmy’s classic, ‘Why Don’t We Get Drunk,’ which was included in the movie and on the soundtrack released by Capitol Records. Recently in 2016, Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally approached A1A with a request that they be Jimmy’s band during a private performance for The World Surf League at The Masters Open in Augusta, Georgia. Not surprisingly, the band was very proud to be Jimmy’s ‘ Coral Reefer Band’ for a day.

A1A performs as a seven to a ten piece band, complete with audio and light production, bringing to life a colorful and energetic family friendly Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show. For added ambiance and realism, adding the A1A Beachwrecked Pirates is a sure fire way to boost up the enthusiasm and energy to your event.

When attending an A1A performance you can expect to hear all of your Jimmy Buffett favorites. You will also be treated to some classic Reggae as well as some original A1A Trop Rock music. The energy, musicianship, originality, and excitement that have always surrounded an A1A performance is an experience and a driving force that has helped the band remain the first and foremost Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show in history.

Doors open at 6 PM and the performance starts at 9 PM. 21+
