Jimmy Buffett Performs at Aspen Festival

September 6th, 2021

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed at the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience on Sunday to close out the festival.

The Aspen Times has a great article on Jimmy’s connections to Aspen over the last few decades.

Buffett formed a long-running softball team in the Aspen rec league, called the Downvalley Doughboys, and landed a Corona beer sponsorship for the team. Tim Mooney, a J-Bar bartender at the time, recalled that the Doughboys got a four-case beer allotment per game and that Buffett once flew New York Yankees third baseman Graig Nettles to town to play as a Doughboy for a championship game. Their primary rival was Frey’s team, the Werewolves.

Buffett to Perform at Aspen Labor Day Festival

August 11th, 2021

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will replace Stevie Nicks as the closing act of the 2021 Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience.

From the Aspen Times:

The announcement comes one day after Nicks, citing concerns about rising coronavirus cases, canceled of all her scheduled concerts including a headlining performance at the Labor Day festival.

“These are challenging times with challenging decisions that have to be made,” Nicks wrote in a statement released Tuesday afternoon on social media. “I want everyone to be safe and healthy and the rising Covid cases should be of concern to all of us.

Buffett, 74, has performed regularly in the Aspen area as far back as the 1970s in local bars, clubs and festivals and recorded at Mad Dog Studios in Old Snowmass, but has never before played a Jazz Aspen event. The “Margaritaville” singer most recently gave a virtual performance for the Aspen High School graduating class of 2020 during the stay-home period early in the pandemic.
