The Land Sharks

The Landsharks have opened up for Jimmy Buffett, The Beach Boys, and have played at The Super Bowl. Buffett hired them on the spot, to be the House band at Margaritaville, where they were the house band, every night, for two years. The Landsharks still play at Margaritaville, most recently at The Margaritaville Cafe, in Key West! We can't wait for them to play at Alliance 2019 next!
