Alpine Valley Show Postponed Due to Severe Weather

July 24th, 2022


Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band’s show that was to take place last night was postponed by local authorities due to severe weather. Buffett wanted to reschedule for today (Sunday) but that plan was not approved.

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Nobody wants to play for you cheeseheads as much as me and the Coral Reefers,” Buffett wrote in a Facebook post. “But, as a pilot, I understand not fooling with bad weather. I also understand how important this show is to our fans who have waited and weathered this covid crap for us to perform. We asked to play tomorrow, but were not granted permission.”

The band is rescheduling its show though, for Aug. 20 — “rain or shine”, Buffett promises.

“That gives some of you enough time to recover from three Phish shows to be ready for us,” Buffett wrote, referencing a Phish residency at the amphitheater Aug. 12 to 14.

Tickets for last night’s show will be honored on the new date.

Article on Buffett’s Origins in Outlaw Country

July 17th, 2022


Jim Allen at uDiscover Music has a good article on Jimmy Buffett’s origins in Outlaw Country: Before Margaritaville: Jimmy Buffett’s Outlaw Country Underground Years

Before becoming the godfather of yacht rock, Jimmy Buffett released seven mostly unnoticed albums where he came off like a cross between an outlaw country rebel and a character from a late 60s underground comic book, with songs criticizing materialism, religious hypocrisy, and jingoistic politics, and extolling the glories of getting high, having as much sex as possible, and being a thorn in the side of the law. How did Buffet go from fabulous furry freak brother to laid-back pope of the Parrotheads?

Long before “Margaritaville” led to legions of Hawaiian-shirted followers embracing him as their guru, Buffett was a hirsute hippie troubadour struggling to make a name for himself in Nashville. He hit Music City at the right time. A couple of years earlier, a countercultural type like him would’ve been run out of town. But revolution was on the rise, and scruffy songpoets like Kris Kristofferson were bringing folk and rock influences and a new kind of attitude to country music.
