Live Daily Review: Margaritaville Mohegan Sun Show

Live Daily has a review of the Mohegan Sun Show: “Live Review: Jimmy Buffett at Margaritaville, Uncasville, CT

After thrilling tens of thousands of “parrotheads” at venues across the globe this year, Buffett repaired to the shore of the Thames River, bringing an hour or so of tropical sunshine into an otherwise gray and dreary fall afternoon in Eastern Connecticut.

With Boston Red Sox power hitter David “Big Papi” Ortiz looking on beaming, Cape Verde’s own Ilo Ferreira was invited to share the spotlight during “Volcano.”

The encore would not have been complete without two of Buffett’s biggest hits and most popular concert staples: “Fins,” and of course, “Margaritaville.” And just when everyone thought the show was over, Buffett strapped on “one more guitar” and took a few moments to remember Anthony “Tony” Tarracino, a former mayor of Key West and legendary bar owner of “Captain Tony’s Saloon”–whose life was memorialized in a Buffett song–who died a few days earlier at the age of 92.

“He had 14 kids by eight wives,” Buffett recalled, “so canonization, maybe not–but still very cool!”
Then the audience got one more chance to sing along, memorializing “Captain Tony” as the notes of “Last Mango in Paris” danced across the bar to wrap up this one-of-a-kind concert experience that most Jimmy Buffett fans only dream about.
