BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Gary Roland & The Landsharks: This Jimmy Buffett Tribute Band has been widely known as one of the most entertaining and interactive party bands in the world, having performed for millions of people all over the globe.
Legend tells the tale of The Landsharks performing at a Key West, Florida concert, when Jimmy Buffett made a surprise visit and asked if he could perform with the band. After performing for the first time with The Landsharks, he liked the band so much that he hired them “on the spot” to be the house band for his brand new Margaritaville Café at Universal Studios, Florida, and had them join him at the grand opening. Afterward, Jimmy Buffett proclaimed, “I like that band, They’re showmen; they’re fun!” In a Radio Margaritaville interview, Buffett also said, “The funny thing was, The Landsharks knew the songs better than I did.”
In addition to Jimmy Buffett, The Landsharks have played concerts with The Beach Boys, Bob Marley’s Wailers, Patti LaBelle, Darius Rucker, Jake Owen, Three Dog Night, War, and many more, always bringing their loyal fans along. They have performed party concerts for Bill Gates of Microsoft, Michael Eisner of Walt Disney, filmmaker George Lucas, the prime minister of Canada, and the Landsharks even played a couple of parties for Jimmy Buffett, himself.
If you’re looking for fun, there is nothing like a Landsharks concert. A Landsharks performance is more than just music… It’s an experience!
