Tropical rock (or Trop-Rock) is a genre of popular music that incorporates elements and influences of rock and roll, reggae, country music, caribbean and zydeco, with themes and musical compositions inspired by an island style that represent a way of life that is relaxing and exotic. Trop-Rock should not be confused with the format of Radio Tropical, which is a generic term for Latin and Caribbean music formats, usually in Spanish.

Although today tropical rock is usually associated with southern Florida and the Gulf Coast of the United States, the roots of tropical rock are in the Southern California beach music of the 1960s with artists like Jan and Dean and The Beach Boys.

Jimmy Buffett has been credited[citation needed] with the origin of the genre "Trop-Rock". It is also called California Beach Sound. There are now many singers and composers within the genre of Trop-Rock throughout the United States. Some of the most popular bands in Trop-Rock genre include: A1A, The Barefoot Man, Blind Manifest, Boat Drunks, Captain Quint, E.C. Davis, Michael Sea and Island Fever, Jimmy Parrish and the Ocean Waves Band[1],Jerry Diaz & Hanna's Reef, Conch Republic, Jake and the Half Conched Band, Jim Morris, Jack Mosley, Jimmy & The Parrots, John Friday, The Landsharks, Latitude, Northern Harbor, Danny Taddei, Mile Marker 24 Band, Leo Dean, Sunny Jim (James White), Troy Allan, PHINS, Jimi Pappas, Joe Bennett, Swampabbean, Calypso Nuts, Jim Lanier, The Tsunami Wave Riders and Young Rebel Goombas. Mainstream artists like Jack Johnson and Kenny Chesney have songs in the trop rock genre.

In 2006, Lewis University's radio station, WLRA-FM, began programming this format on the air in Chicago and streaming world wide all day Saturday. Many of the Trop-Rock artist are regulars on "THE ISLAND" radio show. [2] Conch Republic Radio [3] streams Trop Rock music from The Florida Keys and Key West. Radio Margaritaville, available on Sirius XM Radio, also plays much of the genre, with a particular focus on Buffett.
