The Caribbean Chillers are Central Florida's Premier Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show Band. A complete Show including Stilt Walkers, Dancers, and Confetti & T-Shirt Canons to warm the crowd up before the show!

Biography

The Caribbean Chillers began with Jason performing a Solo Act as a Jimmy Buffett "sound-alike" sevaral years ago.

After Buffett "jumped" into the mainstream crossing over into the Country Music scene, Jason thought this would be a good time to form a "JB Tribute Band" to play for all of those people who only get to see him in concert every few years.

We've been told that the key to our success lies in the fact that we look, act, and sound just like Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band. People who hear us from a distance, or approach the Bandstand from the rear, swear that it's a Buffet CD playing, until they see us on stage.

That's what we've rehearsed, and what our goal is... to perform the songs of Jimmy Buffett "in concert" format and to give our audience all of the sights, sound, AND FUN, of a real Buffett Show. We specialize in bringing you "the Jimmy Buffett-Parrothead experience", up close and personal.

We've performed at the Tropicanna in Atlantic City, at several large festivals opening for Charlie Daniels, Diamond Rio, Edgar Winter, and Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), and we've even "opened" for Buffett at two concerts in Florida in 2004 and 2005.

We've also performed at several smaller Parrothead Festivals in Palm Harbor, New Port Richey, Melbourne, Orlando, Jacksonville, Palm Coast, and Tampa, and have been invited back to do them again in 2006.

Before one Buffett Concert, Jimmy's dancers came out onstage for a few songs and it was a blast! Heather Perry said, "YOU GUYS ROCK!", then went inside and did her show with Jimmy.

In 2006, we've added the "Warm-Up Crew" to our lineup to bring you the closest thing to a real Buffett Show without hiring Jimmy himself.

As long as people yearn for the setting of a Tropical Paradise, with a little Pirates Adventure thrown in, and, the music Jimmy has written,
the Caribbean Chillers will be bringing you those sights and sounds when Jimmy's not in town!

Discography

Because we are a Jimmy Buffett Tribute Band, we focus on doing his songs just like he does them, and have not produced any songs of our own.
However, we do have a few original fun tunes that you're bound to hear at every show!

Set List

Our typical Set List consists of 35-40 Buffett Tunes presented in a format that allows us to bring the audience a "show" - not just play a bunch of songs.

We try to have a "theme" to our show, much the same way Buffett does at his shows, so the audience can interact and participate just like they would do at a real JB Concert.
Depending on the audience, we usually throw in our originals, and a few "Classic Rock" tunes so everyone gets some of what they like.

We start off with 20-30 minutes of pure "warm-up" fun using Stiltwalkers, Dancers, and "blasting" confetti and t-shirts into the audience. Total audience parcipitation takes place as we pit one section against the other for the "goodies" we're about to send to the winner, all while tropical music fills the air!

Our Show is usually performed "in Concert" format, which means we'll do about 90-120 minutes, take a short break, then come back and do another 90-120 minutes.
