The Parrot Island Band
The Parrot Island Band consists of Kevin Garrelts (congas), Linda Harris (steel drum), Bry Harris (ukulele/guitar/vocals) and can add bass player if needed for bigger events. The band has been together for ten years and has had the opportunity to play all around Atlanta and throughout the southeast region. We play music by Jimmy Buffett, Zac Brown, Kenney Chesney and many others. We also play from over 30 original “tropical songs” that have been very well received and are played on numerous Internet radio stations.
Parrot Island Band Members
Band leader, Bry Harris, has been a huge Jimmy Buffett fan since the mid-70’s. He was named “most likely to open for Jimmy Buffett” by his high school graduating class. Although he took a long break from the music business, Bry is making up for lost time and enjoys meeting new friends at the numerous gigs that the band plays for.
Linda Harris is the beauty of the band and plays the steel pan. While many people only get to hear the steel pan on cruises or the Carribean, Linda brings the Island sound to the Parrot Island Band. Linda decided it was a good idea to pick up the steel pan when Bry “accidentally” won a bid for one on Ebay (and had no idea how to play it himself).
Kevin Garrelts adds the sound of congas to the band, rounding out the tropical feel to the music we play. Originally from Kearney, Nebraska – “Key West” Kev currently resides in Acworth, GA. While Kevin is currently playing percussion/conga with the band, he is also an excellent rhythm guitar player.
