Artist: Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band
Opening Act(s): n/a
In the late 90s, some friends went to a Jimmy Buffett show. The next day they couldn’t stop singing “Fins” and doing the moves that went along with the song. I felt like I had missed something.
My chance to experience a Buffett show came in March 2012. The audience was a mix of older people that do the party bus for every show and groups of frat boys. All of them were equally into the show.
The Coral Reefer Band looked like they were having a great time on stage. Jimmy Buffett cracked jokes and even brought up the incident in Australia where he fell off the stage by walking towards the edge of the stage and saying something like just checking to see how much space I have. I love when artists don’t take themselves too seriously.
Overall, a fun time. If you are a fan this show is a must. If you are lukewarm, you’ll still have a good time.
