For the first time in 25 years, the summer concert season in Noblesville will be free of fins, volcanoes and cheeseburgers.
Jimmy Buffett, whose perennial summer tours have been a tradition in Noblesville for decades, is skipping Indianapolis on his 2015 “Workin’ and Playin'” tour, sources in Buffett’s camp confirm. Buffett has played Indy at least once every summer since 1990 (and, we should note for political purposes, generally announces his tour dates in January or February).
Dustin Duncan, membership director of the PHIndy Parrothead Club, says his group traditionally schedules a charity event prior to Buffett’s local stop. “We haven’t made any solid plans this year, since we’ve been in limbo hoping Jimmy would announce a show,” he said. Duncan said his group would head to Cincinnati this summer instead.
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band played on Thursday night at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. The show was a continuation of last years “This One’s For You Tour”. The set list from the show is now available. Some changes included “Migration”, “Cuban Crime of Passion”, “Growing Older But Not Up”, “Floridays”, and “Oldest Surfer On The Beach”.
Keith Sykes, former Coral Reefer, writer of “The Coast Of Marseilles” and co-writer with Buffett of “Volcano”, is currently in the middle of a Kickstarter Campaign. As you may know, Kickstarter is one of several “crowd funding” platforms on the web that allows independent artists to reach out to fans for funding everything from full CD projects, videos, promotional campaigns, to songbooks and handmade instruments, to almost anything you can imagine.
Kickstarter asks the creators to set a minimum goal amount and a time limit. If the goal isn’t reached in the amount of time stated, then the creators don’t receive any of the pledged money and, of course the backers are not billed for their pledges. Sykes has 21 days (as of April 9th) to reach his stated goal of $25,000.
Sykes will be recording songs he’s written with the Trop Rock audience in mind. “Little Beach Town”, along with three others, are the top contenders for singles. Go to Kickstarter.com to check out Sykes’ page. Whether it’s making a pledge or spreading the word, Sykes says any help will be greatly appreciated.

With musician Jimmy Buffett singing about “changes in latitudes” Tuesday outside Florida’s Capitol, proponents of buying Everglades land from U.S. Sugar Corp. hope in the next few weeks to change the attitudes of lawmakers opposed to the deal.
Introduced by Miami Herald columnist and novelist Carl Hiaasen, Buffett played a 25-minute mid-day acoustic set as part of an Everglades Day rally that attracted more than 500 people to the Capitol courtyard.
“What would Skink do?” Buffett asked the crowd in reference to the fictional former Florida Gov. Clinton Tyree, who appears as a wild hermit known as Skink in a number Hiaasen’s novels.
“He’d do the right thing,” Buffett answered his own question. “Governor. Legislature. Do the right thing. … We want to preserve our water. We want to save our swamp. And we want to have a future for our children in Florida.”
A video is available on Youtube
Songs that Buffett played: “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes”, “Migration”, “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, “Growing Older But Not Up”, “Floridays”, and “Margaritaville”
