A1A is proud to present to you their first all original CD.-- "Ship Happens!!" A LONG awaited and anticipated CD by A1A fans nationwide, "Ship Happens!" is getting excellent reviews, selling well and will hopefully be a large steppingstone for the band!
"Ship Happens!!" is the perfect example of the kind of CD you want to pop into your CD player when you just want to get away from it all.

Well, pour yourself a nice cool drink, close your eyes and let the mood of the new music by A1A take you away.
"Ship Happens!!" was originally written and recorded as a limited edition concept album for "The Parrothead Cruise of 2003" by Carnival Cruiselines. As it turned out, response was so overwhelming that the band decided to release it officially as their first all original CD.
A1A has gained national recognition over the past 13 years as The Official and Original Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show-Brought to you in part by Corona Beer and Margaritaville Tequila. 2003 marked a new chapter in A1A's history as they continued their tradition of making sun baked tropical rock with the release of their first all original CD, "Ship Happens!!
In 1992, after winning a Jimmy Buffett Sound Alike Contest for Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Records, Jeff Pike and A1A became The Official and Original Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show, now internationally renowned. As the first band ever to showcase a high-energy 4-hour concert composed of nothing except Buffett's best songs, spanning every era of his career, A1A became the only band personally sanctioned by Jimmy Buffett himself. While other bands have followed in A1A's wake and even cited them as their main inspiration, A1A remains the first and foremost Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show.
A1A has played many respected venues and shows across the country, including The MGM Grand and The Key Largo Hotel Casinos in Las Vegas; The Gulfport Grand Casino Event Center in Gulfport, Mississippi; The Summit in Houston, Texas; two very special July 4 and July 5 performances for our country at the largest American Naval Base in Yokosuka, Japan; Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Cafes in Key West and New Orleans; Sloppy Joe's in Miami, Orlando, Key West, Atlanta and Jacksonville; daily shows in Atlanta at the 1996 Olympics; Foxy's on Jost van Dyke; Carlos 'n' Charlie's in Cozumel; Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; The Green House in St. Martin; The Boatyard in Barbados; The Hotel Milan in Panama; The Maui Ocean Center in Maui, Hawaii; 7 years as the headline act at the now-legendary MOTM Annual Parrot Head Conventions in New Orleans and Key West, a variety of annual Caribbean Parrot Head Cruises dating back to 1995; The Roxy Theater and The Cotton Club in Atlanta, Georgia; plus a long resume of concerts, corporate, festival and pro sporting events. (An added treat included here is that Jeff sings an astounding version of the National Anthem).
Over the years A1A has been joined onstage by several members of Jimmy Buffett's own Coral Reefer Band: harmonica master and now member of A1A, Greg "Fingers" Taylor; saxophonist & horn section leader, Amy Lee; guitarist, Peter Mayer; Music Director and keyboardist, Michael Utley and steel drum virtuoso, Robert Greenidge. Fingers and Amy Lee have both lent their talents to A1A's first two live CD's, the first CD produced by long time Coral Reefer Jim Mayer. Michael and Robert performed with A1A in front of the throngs of "parrot heads" at their annual convention in New Orleans and in Key West. A1A appeared in Jimmy's MTV Video "Fruitcakes" and Jeff's performance with Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band in Atlanta in 1995 was used as a limited edition radio promotion for Jimmy's tour that year.
