From Champaign, Illinois and now entering their 18th year as a group and still going strong, The Boat Drunks have performed from coast to coast with nearly every member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band and have opened shows for Jimmy Buffett, The Beach Boys and Little Feat. Other notable shows include playing outside of Wrigley Field in July 2011 prior to a Cubs-White Sox game, performing in 2015 at a Stanley Cup party for Coach Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks and playing “Margaritaville” Theme Nights for the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium from 2016-18. Their set includes many fan-favorite as well as lesser-known Buffett hits, original music from their five studio albums and other covers ranging from Little Feat to Johnny Cash to The Beatles and more. The Boat Drunks perform at many “Parrothead” fundraising festivals across the country and their originals have been heard on Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville, Sirius/XM Channel 24. Their 2018 album release, “Together We Fly”, was produced by R. Scott Bryan (Sheryl Crow, Devon Allman) and features eight new original recordings by The Boat Drunks. The first single from the album, titled “Beer, Buffett and Baseball” and penned by lead singer Mike Miller, has proven to be a hit with Parrotheads and baseball fans alike with its homage to America’s pastime. Their music can be found on CD Baby, iTunes, at www.boatdrunks.com, YouTube and on Facebook.
