Buffett Playing Show for NFL Owners’ Private Party

February 5th, 2010

According to the Indy Star, Jimmy Buffett will play a private show for an NFL owners’ party this weekend:

Indianapolis’ Tom Battista is making his way to South Florida this week, but not to watch the Super Bowl.

Battista, who has been Jimmy Buffett’s stage manager for 17 years, is organizing a small 60- to 90-minute show for an NFL owners’ private party. Some of the owners apparently are Parrotheads.

Saturday’s show and soiree, which includes Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, is to take place at the luxury resort Viceroy Miami, which is located in a spot billed as “Miami’s Wall Street of the Americas.”

“It’s a really swank hotel,” said Battista, who couldn’t say which songs Buffett would perform before today’s sound check. “Until we do sound check, we won’t really know.”

About 300 people are expected.

Jimmy will be at the Viceroy Hotel on Saturday for a charity event.
