Jimmy Buffett stopped by BAZ Bar in St. Barts after midnight on New Years Eve and played a few of our favorites. The set list included, “Electric Avenue”, “Autour du Rocher”, “Volcano”, and “Margaritaville” (thanks to Ryan for sending that along to us)
Native son Jimmy Buffett came home Tuesday and opened Margaritaville Casino & Restaurant in Biloxi, the town where his career began.
Buffett reminisced with the crowd of about 4,000 invited guests who danced at the foot of the outdoor stage and watched the hour-long concert from the casino balconies overlooking Back Bay.
Those who didn’t have VIP tickets formed an impromptu Parrothead yacht club near the marina and listened from their kayaks and party boats.
His sister Lulu Buffett and New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis were spotted in the crowd, along with Buffett’s longtime Biloxi friends.
