Mark 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.
In 1999, 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. A Cajun/Zydeco rhythm section, reggae keyboardist, country guitarist, R&B sax man, a great percussionist and a steel drummer who actually studied with 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 have performed around the world for our US Military, concerts, corporate events and private parties, all shows are true to the partying Jimmy Buffett Style.
