Jimmy Buffett Performs at Aspen Festival

September 6th, 2021

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed at the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience on Sunday to close out the festival.

The Aspen Times has a great article on Jimmy’s connections to Aspen over the last few decades.

Buffett formed a long-running softball team in the Aspen rec league, called the Downvalley Doughboys, and landed a Corona beer sponsorship for the team. Tim Mooney, a J-Bar bartender at the time, recalled that the Doughboys got a four-case beer allotment per game and that Buffett once flew New York Yankees third baseman Graig Nettles to town to play as a Doughboy for a championship game. Their primary rival was Frey’s team, the Werewolves.

Charleston Rocked for First Time in a Decade

February 3rd, 2012

It had been over a decade since Jimmy Buffett performed in Charleston, but the wait was well worth it as he played a high-energy show that included a couple rare gems.

“Honey Do” was last played January 16, 2010 in Bora Bora and “Prince of Tides” was last played February 5, 2003 in Columbia, SC.

The Margarillas posted the actual set list, noting that “Tin Cup Chalice” was originally planned as the final encore but Jimmy switched it to “He Went to Paris.”

The Charleston Post & Courier has a photo gallery and review of the show:

Unseasonably warm weather made it all the easier for fans to tailgate Thursday in the coliseum’s parking lot, which was awash in rainbow of Hawaiian shirts and tropical drinks. Once inside, the crowd was an impressive variety of demographics: everyone from baby boomers who, like Buffett, now qualify for retirement (Buffett turned 65 Christmas Day), to those folk’s grandchildren, and every age in between. Apparently when it comes to enjoying a “Cheeseburger in Paradise” or discussing the finer points of a pencil-thin mustache, age knows no bounds.

Given the warm reception that he received, it might not take another 15 years for Buffett to return as a performer.

Buffett plays Orlando on Saturday before taking a three weeks off. See the full tour schedule and get your tickets here.

Buffett Performs at Child Mind Gala

December 9th, 2011

Jimmy Buffett was in New York City on Thursday night where he performed at the Child Mind Institute charity gala, hosted by Matt Lauer, and received the 2011 Child Advocacy Award with his wife Jane.

In a video message Amy Poehler and Will Arnett toasted the Buffetts, who were receiving the Child Advocacy Award, saying they’d personally give them an award for “the best fake Southern accents for real New Yorkers, the best collection of flip flops for a CEO,” and for being “the coolest rich people on the planet.” Getting slightly more serious, they noted that “wealth is measured by kindness and generosity,” and on that score the Buffetts richly deserve the evening’s honor.

More from the Wall Street Journal:

The event helped raise over $5 million for the Child Mind Institute, which helps children with mental-health issues.

Every now and again, guests wonder how a boldfaced name got set up with a certain institution, but that wasn’t that case here. Mr. Buffett, whose hits include “Margaritaville” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” seems to have an incredibly pleasant emotional interior and very sound mental health. Also, he’s friends with Harold S. Koplewicz, the institute’s president.

“I’ve never had a stress-related problem the beach couldn’t solve,” Mr. Buffett said, true to form.

New York City residents in particular, he has noticed, seem sort of stressed-out a lot. “They need to remember they’re on an island,” the singer said. “There are beautiful beaches just over the bridge.”
