The Coconut Boat Band


The Coconut Boat Band grew from an idea that started with the escapism theme that is so prevalent in Jimmy Buffett’s catalogue of Caribbean music-lore. When Scott Ellis and Scott Kirkpatrick crossed paths in the San Francisco Bay Area in the early 90’s, they discovered that they shared a common spirit of adventure and wonder for the ocean and things tropical. Ellis, a veteran water man, has scuba dived on many of the great shipwrecks in several oceans around the world including the famed Atocha and Flor do Mar galleons. Read more on Last.fm

Ellis, a veteran water man, has scuba dived on many of the great shipwrecks in several oceans around the world including the famed Atocha and Flor do Mar galleons. It wasn’t until Ellis found out that Kirkpatrick was a musician did they decide to collaborate on writing tunes that captured the essence of the beachcomber lifestyle.

Chuck’s stellar career includes playing guitar and singing with such luminaries as The Bee Gees, Firefall, Eric Clapton, America, Eddie Money, Peter Frampton, Meat Loaf, Harry Chapin, Dion, Coco Montoya and others too numerous to mention. He also engineered Derek and the Dominoes classic “Layla”. Scott’s notable history includes touring as drummer and vocalist with artists such as McGuinn, Clark & Hillman (The Byrds), Firefall, Jaco Pastorius, Chuck Berry, Lou Christie, Coco Montoya, Beach Boys and Shirley Caesar, to name a few.
