ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Jumbo Shrimp Band is a premier Trop Rock band from St. Louis, MO, playing Gumbo Rock and Caribbean Soul – a tropical mix of Jimmy Buffett, Reggae, Zydeco, Mardi Gras and Beach music.

If you’re a Parrot Head, you will have no problem understanding The Jumbo Shrimp Band. It’s the Margaritaville experience from New Orleans to Key West to Jamaica.

If you’re not a Parrot Head or don’t even know what one is, that’s OK too. There’s still hope for you and we can help!

Just think of it this way – it’s a musical adventure centered on the beaches of Key West, with excursions to New Orleans at northern edge of the Caribbean and southward to the islands of Jamaica, Cuba and Trinidad. Songs about Mardi Gras and gumbo, sailboats and rum, and beaches and beer!

Band History

The Jumbo Shrimp Band’s musical style was developed in 2009 while this group of friends were lost at sea for over six months. It’s the usual story, something about a three-hour tour, the weather started getting rough, blah, blah, blah……

Good fortune was on their side, because there happened to be three CDs on the boat: the greatest hits collections of Jimmy Buffett, Buckwheat Zydeco and Bob Marley. (Actually there were four, but thankfully Abba’s Greatest Hits was scratched and could not be played.) Once Gonzo rigged up some solar panels from palm leaves, gum wrappers and a shoe string, the band fired up the boom box and jammed on those CDs 24/7. Then, miraculously, a crate of musical instruments washed up on the beach. With nothing else to do, the gang all learned to play an instrument, became musical geniuses and formed a band – which they dutifully named after their boat, the S.S. Jumbo Shrimp.

After fending off local headhunters, Japanese submarines and Russian cosmonauts for several more months, they were finally rescued by the US Coast Guard.

Within days of their return to civilization, world famous promoter Hugh Jass read their story in Time magazine and signed them to a massive contract to continue to record and perform their mix of Gumbo Rock and Caribbean Soul.

The rest, as they say, is history…………
