This year, we’re celebrating the Parrothead’s Annual Meeting of the Minds festivities a little differently. In years past we’ve had special guests performers. This year, our very own house band The Cory Heydon Band will be rockin’ and rollin’ to headline a very special Commotion on the Ocean. Cory, Tom, and Terry have become such a popular trio that our Commotion on the Ocean runs the risk of selling out almost every night.

I had some time to sit down with Cory and chit chat about tonight’s show. Here’s a brief excerpt from the interview. Enjoy!

FG: How will the Parrotheads Commotion be special?

CH: We’re going to do exactly what we do all the time, but I plan to throw in some obscure Jimmy Buffett and other Parrotheads-style songs. We’ll play “Margaritaville” if someone asks.

FG: What’s your favorite Jimmy Buffet song?

CH: “Death of an Unpopular Poet” and “Come Monday,” which has the word Montana in the lyrics. [Note: Cory hails from the great state of Montana!]

FG: Tell me about your new original song “Out on the Fury.”

CH: Terry and I decided to collaborate and write a few songs. It’s the first one that we did, but there’s more to come. Our fans can look forward to more trop-rock songs like “Out on the Fury” on an album in the future.

FG: What’s unique about performing aboard a boat?

CH: It’s just the most beautiful place ever. It’s a really cool environment. It’s your own dance club in the middle of the water and you get to watch the sunset. The added feature is there’s a band on board.

FG: What do you think of the Fury crew?

CH: The Fury crew rocks, man!

The Cory Heydon Band Meeting of the Minds Commotion on the Ocean sets sail tonight at 5:30pm departing from the Historic Seaport. See you there!
