Jimmy Performs at Key West Wedding

March 22nd, 2011

On Saturday evening Jimmy Buffett performed at a wedding in Key West:

Buffett walked barefooted onto the small stage at the private Sugarloaf Key home of dentist Fred Troxel, who a few hours earlier had exchanged nuptials with Key Wester Rita Brown; Buffett and Brown have long known each other. He then belted out Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” and the Rolling Stones classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” For his finale, Buffett sang his own “Margaritaville,” with some changes in lyrics to cater to the occasion.

Buffett showed no signs of effects from the sudden five-foot fall he took when finishing up a Jan. 26 concert in Australia. He was hospitalized for a brief period before being released Jan. 27, but had to cancel a scheduled concert in New Zealand to recover from injuries.

He mentioned the tumble to the audience of about 300 wedding guests, saying it was the first time he had performed before any group since the incident.
