Had a Blast at Buffett!

Buffett was all that I expected and more.  Similar to a football game, the best partying takes place during the tailgate before the main event.

 

Of course, there were landsharks…

…a crazy number of coconut tops and grass skirts.

…and plenty of people wasting away again in Margaritaville.

Before the show, two men livened up an already lit crowd by launching beach balls into the amphitheatre with the aid of a huge slingshot.  Once Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band entered the arena, “Summerzcool” was in session and Professor Buffett educated his captive pupils on all the required topics for his program, such as Chemistry to understand the need for NaCl.

Live renditions of classic Buffett songs sounded like familiar jukebox tunes combined with other classics, like Southern Cross by Crosby, Stills and Nash.  They also surprised the crowd with some new songs, such as A Lot to Drink About.

As beach and sunset images projected on the screen behind the band, night of carefree fun continued.  The party atmosphere of this concert created a love fest for the entire night.  Fans old and young embraced the evening and strangers by hugging and toasting good times.

At the end of the second set, the crowd banged on the backs of chairs begging for an encore.  With another cover classic, the band played Yellow Submarine by The Beatles.  Why Yellow Submarine?  Like Jimmy said, “Why not?”  His carefree, comical way carried through until the end of the show.
