ABOUT BLUFFETT
Ever since he can remember, Larry Pearson has been a Parrothead! That is to say he has been a dedicated fan of the one and only Jimmy Buffett! Larry was so infatuated with the music and persona of Jimmy Buffett that he became a musician. For years he toured and was told by so many fans how much he sounded and looked like Jimmy Buffett! This eventually led to an amazing transformation in Larry's life. Since it was so natural and fulfilling, he started performing only the music of his idol, which fills volumes, and eventually added the authentic costuming and stage props. He then found a dedicated troupe of musicians who also were in awe of the legend! This formed BLUFFETT featuring Larry Pearson & The Son Of A Sailor Band... the most incredible re-creation and tribute to the "beach-master" himself....Jimmy Buffett!!

The music of Jimmy Buffett has covered several decades and his concerts sell out in a matter of minutes due to the popularity of this entertainer and the wide age group and cross section of fans who love the man and the music!! So break out the Hawaiian Shirts, the Beach Sandals and let BLUFFETT take you to the barefoot sand-land of "Margaritaville"!

BLUFFETT has played MANY Theaters, Festivals and Special Events since that formation and has toured and played consistently for the past 15 years, due to their tremendous demand!
