As a native of the Texas Gulf Coast, Jerry Diaz has lived the songs he writes and sings. Drawing on influences such as The Beach Boys, Jerry Jeff Walker Zac Brown, Kenny Chesney, and Jimmy Buffett, he takes listeners on a musical journey to places like New Orleans, Pensacola, Key West, and the Texas beach bars he knows well.
Personal experiences from a life spent in places like Crystal Beach and Galveston Island along with tales handed down from sailors, fishermen and beach lovers all combine to give Diaz a firsthand outlook at a world others only claim to know well.
With Hanna’s Reef, Diaz has released the albums Reef Madness (2002) Deja View (2004) Home on the Gulf Coast (2009) On a Beach in Mexico (2012) and Rum Drinks & Sandy Beaches (2018).
The band performs extensively throughout Texas and the Gulf Coast, at festivals, beach bars, private and corporate parties, and special events of all kinds.
In addition to the hectic live performance and recording schedule that he maintains, Diaz also produces a handful of events every year, including the highly acclaimed Pardi-Gras event in New Orleans. Diaz also is responsible for the creation and founding of the Meeting of the Minds event (a Parrot Head staple) that occurs every year in Key West. The story of the beginnings of the Parrot Head movement, and Diaz’s involvement in it are featured in the Netflix documentary entitled “Parrot Heads”
