Parrot Head Weekend in Key West - Jimmy Buffet in Concert


Jimmy Buffett (born James William Buffett on December 25, 1946, in Pascagoula, Mississippi) is a singer, songwriter, author, businessman, and recently a film producer best known for his "island escapism" lifestyle and music including hits such as "Margaritaville" (No. 234 on the list of "Songs of the Century"), and "Come Monday." He has a devoted base of fans known as "Parrotheads." His band is known as the Coral Reefer Band.

Aside from his career in music, Buffett is also a best-selling writer and is involved in two restaurant chains named after some of his best known songs, "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Margaritaville." He owns the Margaritaville Cafe restaurant chain and co-developed the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant concept with OSI Restaurant Partners (parent of Outback Steakhouse), which operates the chain under a licensing agreement with Mr. Buffett.

He and his wife Jane have two daughters, Savannah Jane and Sarah Delaney, and a son, Cameron Marley.

Love Jimmie!
Doesn't he have a big pad out on Marathon or maybe Shark Key?
My fave song...
"Mother Mother Ocean, I have heard you call..."

Awesome!

Thanks for your nice comment, allyn paul.

I'm sure he is giving more than one concert in the Keys. We thought, we have seen him yesterday down here, but we were too far away...not 100% sure of that.:-)

Hi Sue! Terrible week. No chance to drop by, and look what I was missing... The Fantasy Fest, but in particular the Love Sunset, with a wonderful PiƱa Colada, what a treat!
Have a great weekend!

Wow, Susanne now you got famous people on your blog. Don't forget we still like palm trees, brids and everything else you photograph. Just making sure that you were not thinking about the paparzzi job, lol (just kidding). This is very nice photograph. And nice to be back, I kind of fell back on attendance due to my busy afterblog life, lol. Anna :)
