The Coconut Island Band performs lively 'Key West style' tropical rock. The band consists of rock and jazz musicians with years of performance experience who never fail to bring the crowd on a musical vacation to the tropics!
The music takes you to the gulf-coast & Florida keys. From there, it's an easy jump to the Caribbean. Run up the jib sail and cruise over the magnificent 'margarita green' waters with the Coconut Island Band. Well sail, well hit the beach and the bars. Well head to Havana, Jamaica, Mexico and all points between. You'll hear stories of corporate drop-outs on "island time", the people you'll meet in faraway places and the vacationers who fall in love with it all and just don't want to go home.
Lead vocalist and rhythm guitar player Jeff Parra, with Linda Maria on percussion and background vocals, has performed in the Portland area as the Broken Neck Pirate since early 2005. Wanting a bigger sound, Jeff launched the Coconut Island Band in early 2006. Rick Johnson on drums brings that island spice and rhythm to the music. Jon Lessig on Bass guitar and background vocals adds that driving bass beat that meshes so well with the drums you'll want to get up and dance. Dave Webber on Lead guitar also adds background vocals and lets his fingers fly on adventurous riffs that add flourish to the tunes.
Make your event a trip to the tropics! You'll be dancing and listening to the excellent music and lyrics that will totally hook you on warm beaches and fun in the sun. Enjoy The Coconut Island Band with a margarita, rum punch or mohito and plenty of friends you will quickly be sailing away to the little latitudes!
The group heads for the studio in April, 2007 to record their 1st cd. YouÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½ll soon be able to take home that tropical feeling!
