Buffett performs at Andy Roddick Foundation Charity Gala

A review of the show from Cmptrman: I had the pleasure of attending the Buffett show in Austin, TX last night (12/4/2010). For those who were not aware, the Andy Roddick Foundation invited Jimmy to play at their annual gala to raise money for underprivileged and abused children.

Andy Roddick, John Legend, Will Kimbrough, Jimmy and the Coral Reefers took part in what turned out to be a simply amazing evening. I was fortunate enough to be able to meet Jimmy prior to the show. Although I was not able to take my own photos during the meet and greet, Jimmy’s folks took a photo and promised the photo early next week. I was also fortunate enough to grab a spot in the front “row” of the ballroom where the concert took place, directly in front of Jimmy and about 2 feet from the stage.

The set list was as follows (Will Kimbrough played the entire concert with Jimmy and the Reefers):
Piece of Work
License to Chill
Five O’Clock Somewhere
Pencil Thin Mustache
Come Monday
Changes In Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
Son of a Son of a Sailor
Cheeseburger In Paradise
Use Me (with John Legend)
One Particular Harbor
Surfing in a Hurricane
Southern Cross
A Pirate Looks at Forty
Fins (this was originally supposed to be after Margaritaville but the audience requested the song and Jimmy complied)
Encore: Brown Eyed Girl

What a great, great, great evening for a fantastic cause. The memories of this evening will last a lifetime.
