Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed on the Today Show this morning. They played “Margaritaville”, “Fins”, “Something About a Boat”, and “Too Drunk to Karaoke”.

The Today Show has an article and videos on there website: “Jimmy Buffett, wastin’ away again at the TODAY Plaza

It just isn’t summer without Jimmy Buffett — that’s something both his loyal Parrothead fans and casual listeners who mainly know his big hit “Margaritaville” can agree on.


Barefoot, Buffett popped up on the TODAY plaza Thursday to promote his new studio record, “Songs from St. Somewhere” and sing a few tunes, including classics “Margaritaville” and “Fins” and new songs “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Boat” and “Too Drunk to Karaoke.” And he took a few minutes out from playing to explain that last title a bit more.

“I have been in that predicament myself,” Buffett said about “Too Drunk,” adding, “and it was my own song!”

He mentioned that he’s been “on vacation” for a while, but is now hitting the road again, and noted that he’s producing a Broadway show, “Big Fish,” based on the 2003 movie.

And it turns out, he runs into Matt Lauer every so often when he’s not on the road: “I see you in your boat occasionally,” he told him, but made sure to add, “My boat’s bigger than his boat.”

Jimmy Buffett performed on Wednesday July 3rd for the opening of the new Margaritaville Resort Casino in Bossier City, LA.

Duck Dynasty (Willie Robertson) joined Jimmy on stage to sing ‎Margaritaville at the Margaritaville Resort Casino in Bossier City, LA concert on Wednesday! Thanks to the Margarillas for the pic.

From the Shreveporttimes.com: The Big Show: Jimmy Buffett’s sold out show at Margaritaville’s Paradise Theater drew crowds from across the region and even well outside the state. No matter the cost, people were looking for fun.

Buffett appeared from backstage with a casual gait, dressed in a bright blue T-shirt and yellow shorts. He kicked off his flip-flops almost as soon as he was on stage.

He began by remembering a show he played in Monroe in 1982, which cost his fans a whole $8 to see. “Tonight is free,” Buffett said.

Buffett kicked off his show with “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes,” the title track from his breakthrough 1977 record, which remains the best selling of his career. It was just the mellow kind of tune to warm up an audience eager for the hits.

I watched Buffett peel off a green-yellow-and-red wristband and hand it directly to a baby being thrust up at the stage. That’s some souvenir for a child who, like I did out on my grandparents’ boats, will likely grow up with the man’s songs.

“Thank you for raising your children on this music,” Buffett said. “That makes my job easier.”

From the PressOfAtlanticCity.com: “Buffett concert draws 50,000 to Atlantic City beach

Perfect weather, a new attraction, a big name and a free show combined to give Atlantic City its second biggest beach concert ever Saturday, including performances by Jimmy Buffett and Wilson Phillips.

Tom Foley, chief of emergency services and director of emergency management services for Atlantic City, estimated that more than 30,000 people were on the LandShark Beach in front of Resorts Casino Hotel. They were joined by another 20,000 people on the Boardwalk and at the LandShark Bar in the new $35 million, Buffett-backed, Margaritaville complex, which brought the singer-songwriter to the resort.

With more than 50,000 attendees, the Buffett and Wilson Phillips concert trails only the 250,000 people who attended a Beach Boys concert in 1983 as the largest beach concert in the city’s history.

Buffett came out at 4:11 p.m. Saturday, after McAnally started doing a song he wrote that was a hit for Kenny Chesney called “Back Where I Come From.”

Buffett was appropriately attired for the sunny day in the 80s, with a white T-shirt and rainbow-colored striped shorts.

“Hello, shore people. Good afternoon. Built it, and he will come. Look at this view,” Buffett said about the beach and ocean to his right from the stage. “The best thing we did was build this place in Atlantic City… This is pretty cool. I’m glad it worked out this way.”

From the PressOfAtlanticCity.com: “Jimmy Buffett to play at Resorts’ free beach concert Saturday

Singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett will christen his Margaritaville complex this Saturday at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City after all.

Buffett will be the special guest during the previously announced free and open-to-the-public beach concert that features 1990s hitmakers Wilson Phillips, Andy Grammer and Mac McAnally at Resorts. McAnally is signed to Buffett’s Mailboat record label and has long been a partner of Buffett’s as a songwriter, musician and producer. The concert starts at 1 p.m.

The concert was announced last month, but Buffett’s appearance was not confirmed by Resorts until Wednesday. As of Wednesday night, it could not be determined when Buffett would take the stage.

Buffett’s appearance means there will be a greater percentage of Parrotheads, the nickname given to Buffett’s fans, in the beach concert crowd.

From ResortsAC.com: Buffett will make a special appearance sometime during McAnally’s set, which begins at 4 p.m.

From “Willie Nelson Takes Over The Surf Lodge In Montauk For A Free Concert, Jimmy Buffett Joins In!


Mama don’t let your babies grow up to be surfers… Willie Nelson, The Original Outlaw took his biodiesel tour bus all the way out to Montauk and delivered a FREE show to those lucky enough to score entrance inside of The Surf Lodge last night.

It was a “once in a lifetime” experience as a crowd of young and old Montauk locals and hipsters gathered around the Surf Lodge’s deck, sand pit, and even in boats to watch the 80 year old singer belt out songs like “Good hear-ted woman,” and “Mama don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.” Then, just when we thought it couldn’t get any better than Willie at sunset, local resident Jimmy Buffett took the stage – barefoot – to end out the show with Nelson, and even through in a “Happy Birthday” song for Willie to honor his recent 80th birthday milestone.

From 27east.com: “Willie Nelson Concert In Montauk Draws Listeners By Land And Sea, Few Problems

Legendary country singer Willie Nelson drew an appreciative crowd by land and sea—well, pond—to the Surf Lodge in Montauk Sunday evening for a concert in which Jimmy Buffett joined him for a couple of songs.

Mr. Nelson, who recently celebrated a birthday, played straight through, noting at one point that he was “studying being 80” and that it was looking pretty great.

The concert was free, with 100 reserved admission tickets going for $100 and raising money for the Montauk Playhouse Foundation, whose community center, a work in progress as well as already in use, is right down the road. Those who hadn’t snagged a guaranteed spot at the Surf Lodge used their own ingenuity, plying Fort Pond on paddleboards and in kayaks and sailboats and forming a flotilla right next to the restaurant. Mr. Nelson turned and acknowledged them at least once, inspiring toots and the raising of paddles in salute from the pond.
