We are excited to create a truly unique front row experience for our fans to watch our stellar headliners up-close,” says Huka Entertainment Chairman and CXO A.J.

We have seen massive demand in our VIP sales and always attempt to break the mold with additional and new types of amenity offerings. The Reef is another way for our fans to get to experience Tortuga like a rockstar.”

The “Tortuga Tailgate Series” will encompass Huka promoted shows throughout the Southeast with Tortuga artists leading up to the festival and will continue expanding until the three-day event. Each show is open to the general public to purchase tickets.

Cody Jinks Prepares For Late Night & Releases Pink Floyd Cover

Cody Jinks will make his late-night TV debut on Conan on Thursday, January 26th, performing his hit “I’m Not The Devil” from his recently released new album of the same name. The performance will take place one night before his sold-out show at LA’s Troubadour.

But first Cody has a treat for fans with a cover of Pink Floyd’s 1975 classic, “Wish You Were Here”. The faithful cover sees Cody trading in some of the song’s more technicolor psychedelica for slide guitar and Cody‘s signature twang.

Check it out here:

2016 was a banner year for Jinks, selling over 80k independent albums and releasing his latest effort “I’m Not The Devil” which debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart, the highest and most impressive standing of his career.

Cody toured extensively following the album’s release, including a sold-out, three-night run at Nashville’s Third and Lindlsey in December.  Fans can expect to see a great deal of new music from Jinks in 2017 in addition to his cover of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”, as well as a new album towards the end of the year.

For a complete list of tour dates and more information on Cody Jinks, visit his website and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
