Why Join?

Congratulations, you have found the website for Latitude 38 Parrot Head Club. We are one of nearly 250 recognized chapters of Parrot Heads in Paradise (, spread throughout the USA, Canada, and Australia. We are a not-for-profit organization of people interested in the music and tropical spirit of Jimmy Buffett. Lat38PHC represents the Greater San Francisco Bay Area from Marin County to South of San Jose, the whole of the East Bay and much of the Central Valley. We have sister clubs in Petaluma and Sacramento.

We are a devoted group that participates in community projects and fundraising to help preserve and improve the environment, aid our fellow man, look out for our animal friends, and any other project our members deem worthy. We do things like a beach clean-up, a day working for Habitat for Humanity, a crew day at the Marine Mammal Center, a soup kitchen day, an American River Charity party, etc. You pick and choose the events in which you wish to participate. Every year we make cash donations to charities recommended by our members. In the last eleven years, the Parrot Head Clubs have collectively raised nearly $30,000,000 and donated over 3,000,000 volunteer hours to worthy causes.

Of course it's not all work. Our annual social calendar typically includes 3 or 4 house concerts where a club member opens their home to a Trop Rock musician or group and we have a Parrot Head party. Many of our members attend Regional Parrot Head get-togethers in Puget Sound, Laughlin, Orange County, San Diego, etc. The biggie of the year is the annual Parrot Head “convention,” called Meeting of the Minds, held in Key West, FL. And, when Jimmy comes to town, we set sail: tailgate and club seats. And, those hard to get limited attendance concerts he has done at the Fillmore? Yep, we get tickets to those, too.

I hope you'll decide to join us in the phun and phestivities by being a part of the Parrot Head nation. It's a great bunch of people who enjoy partying together while helping our community and environment.
