As a much-anticipated part of the Georgia’s Island Stage Concert Series – hosted by music legends Banks & Shane – A1A’s tropical beach songs coupled with the beauty of the newly redesigned lakeside Peachtree Point Amphitheater brings an authentic Caribbean experience to the heart of North Georgia.

Not only is A1A the only tribute band sanctioned by Jimmy Buffet; they have also had the distinct honor of sharing the stage with the legend himself.
