From the New York Post: “Jimmy Buffett surprises Surf Lodge guests with performance”
Summer in the Hamptons is still going for island rocker Jimmy Buffett — who surprised guests at Surf Lodge last weekend by getting onstage during a Wyclef Jean gig.
Buffett performed “Margaritaville,” changing the lyrics to center on Montauk, with Jean on bongos.
Buffett also referenced hotspot owner Jayma Cardoso by shouting, “Those Brazilian women gave me too much tequila!”
Before Wyclef’s performance, rapper Lupe Fiasco also performed and invited a fan in his early teens onstage to rap with him.
Jimmy Buffett played a free get out the vote concert on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2018, at the Hollywood ArtsPark Amphitheater. The set list from the show is now available.
From the Miami Herald: “Coconut bras and politics: Jimmy Buffett hits the campaign trail for Gwen Graham”
Parrot Heads flocked to Hollywood Thursday evening to absorb the booze-soaked sounds of Jimmy Buffett as the singer who brought Key West to the world held a free concert to support Gwen Graham’s campaign for Florida governor.
To the extent they were there for a political event, though, is debatable.
“I am an original Parrot Head,” boasted Susan Best, 58, of Hollywood, who was decked out head to toe in green-and-pink flamingo attire. “I couldn’t believe he is playing a free show in my backyard.”
With Graham seeking the Democratic nomination in a five-way race, Buffett’s gratis appearance in a city that boasts a Margaritaville beach resort — and a county with the most Democratic voters in the state — could help her. The 71-year-old singer resonates with an older, whiter crowd, a demographic with whom Graham, 55, should perform well.
Some of the attendees said they’d already made up their mind — to vote for someone other than Graham.
“We came despite the politics,” said Deanna Bloom, 34. “This [Graham] isn’t even who we are for.”
Any Parrotheads in South Florida looking for a free Jimmy Buffett concert are in luck – as long as you don’t mind putting up with a little politics.
On Thursday August 23rd, the legendary Florida singer/songwriter will host a get-out-the-vote concert and it’s free and open to the public.
The concert is at the ArtsPark at Young Circle Amphitheater in Hollywood. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m.
