Mix the music of Jimmy Buffett with the Marshall Tucker Band and put it all down by the waterside, and you have the CoastRiders.

Based in North County San Diego, the band features picker Gerry “Dog” Walker with longtime Jimmy Buffett tribute-entertainer Gary Seiler.

The CoastRiders call their music Country/Buffett. In 2011, guitarist/singer Jim Dougherty split from the band.
