The Coral Reefer Band is the touring and recording band of American singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. Originally it was a fictional band consisting of the imaginary members Marvin Gardens, Kay Pasa, Al Vacado and Kitty Litter.

The name "Coral Reefer" alludes to both coral reefs (in line with Buffett's tropical-themed music) and also "reefer," which is slang for marijuana. The term is also related to sailing; a sailor who shortens or "reefs" a sail is a reefer.

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band perform during their Summerzcool Tour in June 2009.
