ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Who is Highway 1?
Based in Florida, Trop-Rock Recording Artists JT and Tea started performing as Highway 1 in 2011. They add additional players when the venue or show calls for it. They play an eclectic mix of music in a style that is called “Trop-Rock” which is defined in Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia as:

“A genre of popular music that incorporates elements and influences of rock and roll, reggae, country music, Caribbean and Zydeco, with themes and musical compositions inspired by an island style that represent a way of life that is relaxing and exotic. Trop-Rock should not be confused with the format of Radio Tropical, which is a generic term for Latin and Caribbean music formats, usually in Spanish.”

Although today Trop-Rock is usually associated with southern Florida and the Gulf Coast of the United States, the roots of Trop-Rock are in the Southern California beach music of the 1960s (where JT comes from) with artists like Jan and Dean, The Beach Boys, The Ventures and many more surf bands.

Highway 1 prides itself on providing a professional, family friendly, fun and enjoyable show wherever they perform. They like to play the songs that people know, want to sing along with, as well as their own original music. Highway 1’s song list is extensive with well over 200 songs and they are always adding new ones to it. They play Jimmy Buffett’s music and apply that style to different musical genres, mixing in other recording artists like Howard Livingston, The Boat Drunks and other Trop-Rock artists, including local legend Pete Harris out of Sebastian, Florida.

They specialize in playing the music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s BUT in their own unique “laid back” style. They play artists such as Neil Diamond, Cat Stevens, Gordon Lightfoot, Beatles, CCR, America, Stones, The Monkees, The Animals, CSN&Y, The Eagles, The Beach Boys, Van Morrison, Johnny Cash and many more.

tropical good time music
Conjuring up images of beaches, sun, sea and rum, Highway 1's music hits all the spots for a good time. Trop Rock is a new genre for me but it describes this stuff perfectly. A great cd to play in the car driving through Florida, or anywhere for that matter. It would even make the grey days just that bit brighter.

tropical fun
Listening to Highway One you just can't help but sing along. Their music is just pure fun! Hearing songs like Key West Way, and Just Came Down For The Weekend; I want to go to the keys! Their music is good for the soul!
