PROGRAMMING NOTES

This licensed version is based on an amalgamation of the 2018 Broadway Production and the US National Tour although the orchestrations have been altered for the licensed version.

This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Piano/Conductor Book. There is programming for this book with around 70 total patches. Although most of the sounds primarily consist of piano and B3 organ, there are several instances of electric pianos (Rhodes and Wurly), honky-tonk and tack piano, and celeste. And what Jimmy Buffet musical would not be complete without an Indian sitar, a low spooky synth pad, and everyone’s favorite patch, a theramin? Although not a technically demanding book to play by most Key 1/PC musical theater standards, it will require a player who is comfortable reading chord charts as many of the songs have very little musical notation all while leading the band and navigating the patches.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

Kick off your flip flops as your theater is transformed into a Caribbean island paradise where love and laughter are the keys to growing older without growing up. Rachel takes best friend Tammy on a bachelorette getaway to Marley’s less than stellar Margaritaville resort, their arrival unexpectedly upending the world of bar headliner Tully and best friend Brick who are used to wining and dining the revolving door of single women arriving on the island each week. It’s a classic case of boy meets girl, girl is unimpressed, and boy does everything he can to win her over, while their two best friends fall for each other. And it’s all told through the music of Jimmy Buffett!
