A Parrot Head is a fan of Jimmy Buffett, Trop Rock music, and the tropical lifestyle and laid-back attitude! The typical Parrot Head is pictured to wear a Hawaiian shirt, flip-flops, and other tropical attire, and to enjoy drinking tropical drinks on the beach, or anywhere else for that matter. Parrot Heads often decorate their homes in tropical decor. In general the life of a Parrot Head is one of relaxation and being on a permanent mental vacation even while at work.

The term “Parrot Head” began in 1985 at a Jimmy Buffett concert at the Timberwolf Amphitheater in Cincinnati, OH. Buffett has said numerous times that he attributes much of his fame to this area. At the show, Jimmy commented about everyone wearing Hawaiian shirts and parrot hats and how they kept coming back to see his shows, just like Deadheads. Timothy B. Schmit, then a member of the Coral Reefer Band, coined the term “Parrot Head” to describe each of those fans.
