A1A – The Official and Original Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show was formed in 1991 when lead vocalist/guitarist Jeff Pike invited Scott Nickerson, founder of the first Jimmy Buffett Parrot Head Club, to join his already successful one-man tribute to Jimmy Buffett. In 1992, the band won a Jimmy Buffett Sound Alike Contest for Margaritaville Records, bringing them to the attention of Buffett and his organization. Starting in 1992, A1A was the first band to perform at and repeatedly headline the annual Jimmy Buffett 'Meeting of The Minds' Parrot Head Convention and many other national landmark yearly Parrot Head Events, which laid the foundation for the fundamental building and growth of the National Jimmy Buffett fan base, Parrot Head Club community and the Trop Rock and Coastal Americana Music genres as they are today.

In 1993, A1A was invited to appear in Jimmy Buffett's MTV Video, 'Fruitcakes.' In 1995, Jeff Pike performed with Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band at Lakewood Amphitheater in Atlanta, Georgia. The show was recorded and released as "Jimmy Buffett's Barometer Soup Radio Special." This show still receives regular rotation on "Radio Margaritaville" on SiriusXM Radio.

In 2016, A1A was honored to perform with Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally as their band in a private performance for State Dignitaries and some of Jimmy's personal friends at The Masters in Augusta, Georgia.

The energy, musicianship, excitement, and continuous honest dedication to preserving Jimmy Buffett's legacy that has always surrounded a Jeff Pike and A1A performance are an experience and driving force that has helped the band remain the first, foremost, and longest-running Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show.

Derrick Dove from South Georgia will open the evening: “Everybody has a rough time. Everybody has their own struggles, and sometimes it’s just not that easy to get over ‘em. The past few years have been rough. My father's death, covid, and everything going on in the world right now. I was struggling for a long time and writing this new album helped me get thru it.” "Rough Time" released in 2023 & went #1 on the Blues Charts! It produced 4 #1 blues singles in 9 countries, and has 4 million streams since its release!
