New to the Parrot Head Club?What is a Parrot Head?

A Parrot Head is a fan of the singer Jimmy Buffett and the relaxed tropical lifestyle that his music embodies. Parrot Heads gather together to enjoy Jimmy Buffett's music, meet new people, have cold beverages, wear tropical garb, and generally have lots of fun.

More importantly, though: While having fun, we also provide charity and services for the community, through fundraising, ecological work, and other volunteering.

The Calgary Parrot Head Club is a non-profit organization, founded in 1996, and is officially recognized by Parrot Heads in Paradise (PHIP). Internationally, there are over 200 officially recognized Parrot Head clubs.

Becoming a member of a Parrot Head Club is much more than just filling out an application form. Membership is about continuous participation in club events and activities, and interaction with other members of the club.

All Parrot Head Clubs offer a wide variety of events during the course of the year to encourage members, new and old, to get directly involved and get to know many of the other members. Any Parrot Head Club derives its strength and relevance from the direct participation of its members.

How Did We Get Named "Parrot Heads"?

The term "Parrot Head" was originally coined by Timothy B. Schmit, now a member of The Eagles, but formerly a member of the Coral Reefer Band back in 1985. That year, at a Cincinnati concert, Jimmy Buffett had noticed that fans with tropical apparel kept repeatedly coming to his concerts, in the same way that "Deadheads" kept coming to "The Grateful Dead" concerts. Schmit had described those fans as "Parrot Heads". Apparently, the term caught on.
