Q Thru Z
After being introduced to each other during the creation of the band St. Somewhere, Paul and Quincy developed a musical and personal friendship that bore fruit with songs like ‘Driftin’ and ‘Deep in my Heart’. With both musicians eager for something new and exciting they have developed Ramajay Intercoastal, a blending of two unlikely but similar worlds. Their Island/Rock approach contains infectious grooves and catchy melodies balanced by intriguing lyrics.
I grew up on the beach so I guess you could describe my music as mellow, folk-style beach ballads and stories with little bit of jazz.
I spent most of my youth moving back and forth from Encinitas (North County San Diego) to Waikiki (Hawaii) and back again ... so surfing, traveling to surf, and, maybe especially, surfing really warm waters for most of my life has influenced my music.
I play guitar and ukelele and, as I mentioned, having spent a good deal of my life under the banyan trees in Waikiki, I do tend to "talk story" between songs ... sometimes even between verses!
Roger is also infamous as the singer and writer of the song Fool for a Blonde from the classic horror movie "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," and from the many incarnations of his own bands, including his newest band Scratch 'n' Sniff, the now defunct blues band, Hell's Kitchen, and as lead guitarist for cult favorite David Ippolito - That Guitarman from Central Park.

Like a cross between Justin Wilson
and Robert Johnson,
He sings the blues
He cooks the gumbo
He plays the guitar
He writes the tunes
He feeds the masses
He makes his very own hot sauce
That’s why they call him …
THE SAUCE BOSS
JIMMY BUFFETT SINGS ABOUT THE SAUCE BOSS in his "I Will Play for Gumbo" song. Parrotheads are now phlocking from all over the country and are also bringing the Sauce Boss to "play' and a' sway' with the gumbo" at their events. Festivals and performing arts centers throughout the US, Canada, and Europe are featuring the Sauce Boss and his gumbo. His songs "Let the Big Dog Eat" and "Great Big Fanny" appeared on the Jimmy Buffett compilation album "Margaritaville Café Late Night Menu". NPR's "All Things Considered" and "Morning Edition" have both covered the Sauce Boss. CNN and EXTRA sent film crews to New York City Sauce Boss extravaganzas in 2000, The Food Network's series "Extreme Cuisine" visited the Sauce Boss on location in New York, and another Food Network series "Keith Famie's Adventures" filmed a Sauce Boss show in Miami. The Sauce Boss is the only personality that’s been featured in “Living Blues”, “GQ”, AND "Gourmet Magazine".
“It was a crazy time to be a kid,” recalls Bryan, “trying to make sense of the Kennedy assassination and all the other things that were happening in the world. But then I heard the Beatles sing ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ and all those other great tunes that featured simple, direct lyrics and great vocals. It inspired me then… and it still inspires me now.”
Although the comparison to Jimmy Buffett is natural because of Kirby's coastal life ranging from his grandparents' roots in Newfoundland, to his years on the coast of New England, to his current home in Key West, his storytelling style of songwriting and often humorous live performances are also reminiscent of folks like Harry Chapin, Jerry Jeff Walker and Steve Goodman with a dash of James Taylor thrown in.

Stars on the Water
Jerry Gontang and Stars On The Water are one of the most requested bands within the Parrot Head community. They really know how to get the crowd dancin'. From their own versions of Buffett to the great rock 'n roll of the 70's & 80's, these talented musicians are true entertainment.
Steel Mill with Vini
I hope that as time goes on more of you will get to hear our band. We do it like the old days. The music of STEEL MILL, written by Bruce Springsteen, is timeless. It works now just as it worked in the late 60s and early 70s. We have a great time playing this great music and I know that you will have a great time listening and dancing along with our band. We made this band so you could hear a live band play this music the way it was supposed to be played.
The four-piece act rode on the driving rhythms of Trinidad & Tobago native Quincy Yeates' steel drums, complemented by guitarist and high-spirited front man, Matt Hall, working within the framework of the collective groove engineered by drummer Kevin Wiley and bassist Aram Takvoryan; all seamlessly sailing along the shores of Island-infected sounds and a variety of musical genres, including reggae, calypso, pop and rock'n'roll; accentuated by the collective vocal offerings of all four members.

The Mango Men
Following their success winning Kenny Chesney's "Next Big Star" competition in Philadelphia (opening for Kenny's Poets & Pirates tour stops in Philadelphia & Holmdel, NJ), The Mango Men celebrated the release of their first, all original CD in May, 2009, entitled, Everyday's a Saturday. Songs from the new CD can be heard on several internet radio stations.
The band takes pride in their energetic and interactive shows, appealing to a wide variety of audiences and their loyal fans. The Mango Men's #1 priority is always their audience, for whom they give 200% every single show.
Their most successful song "Who's The Man?" is about kicking people's asses. Come on! The Massacoustics together hardly break 300 pounds. Unlikely as one would be to catch them, whose asses are they really going to kick?

Troy left us on November, 11th, 2010 and left a big holein all of our hearts. His zest for life and his will to keep going while he sturggled with cancer has touched the entire Trop Rock World. From his website- "It is a great honor for so many of us to call Troy Allan our friend. So it is with great sadness that we bid farewell to our friend in this earthly existence. He touched so many people and his story will always be remembered. He was a truly wonderful and inspiring individual and we are all blessed to have been a part of his journey." We can't say it any better. Sail on, Troy.
