Buffett Performs at JazzFest

May 8th, 2011

The Times-Picayune has a great writeup of Jimmy Buffett’s performance at JazzFest on Saturday night:

Buffett’s island style lent new significance to typical Jazz Fest sights and smells: the beach balls that bounce through the crowd at the Acura Stage, the beach towels spread throughout the Fair Grounds, the coconut scent of suntan lotion that floats in the air. Typical Jazz Fest attire – the flip-flops, straw hats, bikini tops, tropical shirts – seemed even more appropriate as Buffett made the crowd feel like a beach must be nearby, somewhere just beyond the massive crowd. Maybe the ocean view is blocked by those tall guys with the parrots atop their hats?

But never mind that. Nothing matters when Buffett starts singing about pirates and sailors, cheeseburgers and margaritas. He starts strumming and you can practically smell salt in the air, hear waves sloshing against the shore.
