Green To Go by John H. Cunningham is FREE on Amazon
The parrotheads, treasure hunters, adventures seekers, island hoppers, rum drinkers, seaplane devotees and conchs have all come to love John H. Cunningham and his Buck Reilly Adventure Series. Currently GREEN TO GO, the second book in the series, is free on Amazon through November 22. You can download it here: http://amzn.to/1cZ2DeG
In GREEN TO GO, good news turns bad fast, and the bad just keeps coming…The unexpected contents of his parent’s Swiss bank account offers Buck Reilly a chance to dig himself out of the hole he’s been in since the recession hit, but first he must recover the treasure maps and clues he lost at sea. Those plans get put on hold when a friend is accused of orchestrating the biggest theft in Key West’s sordid history, and the FBI uses Buck’s past against him to demand that he search for the thieves who fled aboard a hundred year-old schooner.
No good deed goes unpunished, and Buck’s dogged by greed and double-crosses from Key West to the Bahamas and points south. His hunt for the missing treasure pits him against a crazed mercenary, Peruvian rebels, rogue Cuban Secret Police and a beautiful woman torn between turning Buck over to the authorities or succumbing to his easy charm.

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band brought their “Songs From St. Somewhere” tour to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night. The set list from the show is now available. They played the song “Colour Of The Sun” from the album “Songs from St. Somewhere” (it was also performed on Thursday in Phoenix). For the final encore Jimmy performed the song “You Never Can Tell” (Chuck Berry cover), which he also did for the two recent shows in Paris.
The tour will resume on November 30th with a show at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, KY. Followed by stops in St. Paul MN, Tulsa OK, Little Rock AR, and Honolulu HI.
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band Performed at the Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA on Thursday night. The set list from the show is now available.
From the Orange County Register: “Jimmy Buffett steers tight ship into Belly Up”
En route to their next Vegas bash, the perennial favorite and his Coral Reefer Band sailed into Solana Beach for a unique warm-up, their first nearby club date in decades.
“It’s only been 32 years since we’ve been here,” Jimmy Buffett pointed out at the start of Thursday’s rarest of rarities: a Southern California club gig from the party captain and his Coral Reefer Band. “Last time I played here I think there was no Internet.”
Nor were there smartphones capable of capturing his entire performance, as so many did here – back then you’d have been tossed out for such blatant bootlegging. It was a technologically simpler time in 1981, when the compact disc and Atari videogames were just coming into existence.
“After doing this for 40 years,” he mentioned, dating an even lengthier career back to his first major album, 1973’s A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean, “it still feels good to sell out in two minutes.”
What set this show apart from all others, though, was not only its small scale – who knew you could fit a dozen people on that stage? – but also the night’s prevailing mood. Buffett, whose movements are fairly minimal even at larger places, was noticeably animated and keen to involve devotees, grabbing a cheeseburger hat from one, donning a lampshade creation from another. The cramped space also tightened an already unerring band, to the point that you could feel them push the feel of well-worn tunes into fresh grooves.
