Buffett Performs second show in Tahiti

Stanton passed along to us a report on the Saturday night’s show in Tahiti: Jimmy Buffett played a second show at Bloody Mary’s on Bora Bora on Saturday night January 16. Though the show was sold out to capacity, the club swelled to twice it’s normal occupancy. The kids are gonna get their playground! Tahitian music legend John Gabilou introduced Jimmy for a second night and moved the crowd at mid-break with a love song of Bora Bora. The Tahitian choir made a repeat appearance on “One Partucular Harbour” and rocked the house. This will go in the books as one of Jimmy’s best club performances.

Buffett Performs in Bora Bora Tahiti

Jimmy Buffett played to a sold out crowd at Bloody Mary’s on the island of Bora Bora, Tahiti last night. With him were Reefers Mac McAnally, and Robert Greenidge. It had been 28 years since Jimmy last played the club, when he was in Tahiti recording the album One Particular Harbour. To commemorate that history a Tahitian choir joined Jimmy onstage for the title track. It was magic. The club’s capacity was about 88. Jimmy will play a second show at Bloody’s on Saturday night. The shows are a fundraiser to build a playground for local school. (thanks to Stanton for passing this along to us)

Some of the songs played:
Chanson Pour Les Petites Enfants
California Promises
Why You Wanna Hurt My Heart
I Used To Have Money One Time
Cowboy In The Jungle
I’m Growing Older But Not Up
Some Enchanted Evening (From South Pacific)

Martin introduces LX Buffett guitar


MusicRadar.com reports that Martin introduces the LX Jimmy Buffett guitar:

Jimmy Buffett has played Martin guitars for decades – and it’s been some party. C.F. Martin & Co. has acknowledged his loyalty twice: in 1998 with the Martin HD-18JB Jimmy Buffett Signature Edition, a classic stage/studio guitar offered in an edition of 424 that sold out immediately, and in 2003 with the Martin 000-JBS Jimmy Buffett Shellback and 000-JBP Jimmy Buffett Pollywog Signature Editions, “off-shore” (as in sailboat-ready) guitars that totaled 168 and 305, respectively.

As Buffett recently pointed out, the one namesake guitar Martin hadn’t yet built for him was a “beach” guitar; a small, sturdy guitar to play at beach with friends and one that would bring that fun, carefree “beach” spirit wherever it went. So under Jimmy’s guidance – Martin Guitar is pleased to introduce the LX Jimmy Buffett.

The Martin LX Jimmy Buffett guitar features the same “go everywhere” design and materials as the popular and fine sounding LXM “Little Martin;” a modified 0 14-fret shape and short 23-inch scale, with an HPL body matched to Sitka spruce top bracing, a modified low oval Stratabond neck, tropical hardwood fingerboard, and Micarta belly bridge.
