JB plays surprise set in New Orleans

December 5th, 2007

This past weekend, Jimmy Buffett was at the bar d.b.a. on Frenchman Street when he took to the stage and performed a few songs. Jacob Brooks of The Bogalusa Daily News writes about the experience:

Around midnight or so, I was feeling the music, dancing, having a good time. I noticed this guy right in front of me. He was an older gentleman, and I didn’t recognize him at first.

Soon, the band took a little break, but when they came back on, the older gentleman who was right in front of me was on stage playing guitar and singing. It was Jimmy Buffett.

He sung “No woman, no cry,” a Bob Marley song, and a few others before turning the stage over back to the band.

When he was on stage, he said he loved New Orleans, which he called the “Capital of the Caribbean.” When people in the audience realized it was him, the cell phone cameras came out and weren’t put away until Buffett left the bar.
