The Jumbo Shrimp Band


The Jumbo Shrimp Band

The Jumbo Shrimp Band is a premier Trop Rock band from St. Louis, MO, playing Gumbo Rock and Caribbean Soul – a tropical mix of Jimmy Buffett, Reggae, Zydeco, Mardi Gras and Beach music.

If you’re a Parrot Head, you will have no problem understanding The Jumbo Shrimp Band. It’s the Margaritaville experience from New Orleans to Key West to Jamaica.

If you’re not a Parrot Head or don’t even know what one is, that’s OK too. There’s still hope for you and we can help!

Just think of it this way – it’s a musical adventure centered on the beaches of Key West, with excursions to New Orleans at northern edge of the Caribbean and southward to the islands of Jamaica, Cuba and Trinidad. Songs about Mardi Gras and gumbo, sailboats and rum, and beaches and beer!



I just wanted to thank you so much for creating a wonderful and fun time at our recent employee Holiday Party! All of the members of your band were very nice and so much fun, and our song requests were met with enthusiasm. Our employees were very happy and upbeat about your song list and performance. I look forward to seeing you guys again!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Wow, you were amazing! It was an absolute blast "wasting away in Margari-TaTa-ville" with all of you. You were the perfect fit for our big bash and you lifted all our hearts with your happy, laid back style. We can't wait to make Margari-TaTa-ville an annual event and to "waste away" again with the awesome Jumbo Shrimp Band.

Thank you so much for being a special part of a night that was so dear to our hearts.

I can say with a great deal of enthusiasm that The Jumbo Shrimp Band was a huge part of the Jimmy Buffett Live At The Drive In concert event. The audience was partying from the minute you started to play. Your playlist was perfect for the audience and created a truly festive mood for everyone, including my employees.  I would highly recommend you as an organization that is professional in every way.

Let me start with – WOW! I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun we had at our Annual Victory Celebration because of YOU! You all were amazing. I loved how you got everyone dancing, playing instruments and interacting with the band on stage. It was great. Everyone stayed for the duration of the event just to hear you. By the end of the evening, we had people ready to buy tickets for next year’s event! This year was the most successful Victory Celebration that we have hosted. From an event coordinator’s perspective, it was an honor to work with such an organized, yet laid back crew.

Thanks for everything.

We perform in several formats and will work with you to customize the performance to meet your budget, venue size and musical tastes.

Whether your need is a solo acoustic performance for a quiet dining atmosphere, a small Tiki Bar combo for a pool party, or the full Jumbo Shrimp Band when things really need to rock, the Jumbo Shrimp can handle it!

We can customize our set list for your event, making us a perfect choice for a themed event such as a Mardi Gras Party, Hawaiian Luau, Cajun Shrimp Boil, Beach Party or a Jimmy Buffett / Margaritaville themed event. And we always throw in some party favorites to keep the dancers moving.

Not in the St. Louis area? No problem – we are happy to bring the party anywhere!

For large corporate events or festivals we can further customize our group by adding musicians to meet your needs, and to provide full sound and lighting services.
