Yep, I heard that same song yesterday on a radio station out of Johnson, SC.  They did not identify the band, but the song is killer.  Still looking, maybe I'll call them....

The answer is the PM band, an offshoot of Jimmy Buffet's Coral Reefers, and simply called "Piece of Paradise." PM is Peter and Jim Mayer.  The CD may be a tough find but copies of the 45 are available on the GEMM website and a live version by Jim Mayer is aviable as a download on amazon.  Happy hunting.  Norman Taylor
