Re: Buffett As a Performer

There was a time (many years ago) when I was a HUGE Springsteen fan. No one put on a better show than Bruce. As an exact opposite performer than Bruce, Jimmy is the most real and honest person you will see on a stage. His band deserves much credit also I can complain, like most of us can about the s...

Re: Who's going to Great Woods Sat 8/10/2019?

Is a 1pm parking lot time firm? Every time I have been here the lots have opened at 10 or 11 am 2 years ago it was 1PM , Last year was Fenway. I think the tickets say , lots open at 1pm. Someone with a ticket could confirm that. I'm going to bet it stays at 1pm. GW usually stands there ground on th...

Re: concert #

One year I wrote in magic marker on sheets of construction paper the city and the year of each show I had been to. I then taped them around the edge of my tent. I honestly don't keep a PRECISE log so it was mostly a good guess. It was cool to do ONCE and I'm glad I did it. But in the end, no one rea...

I think.........

It's time for Jimmy Buffett to rethink his marketing strategy. I totally understand his many years of slowly and sometimes last minutely announcing his concert schedule but I'm not sure if it's still effective. Many bands in his age group (Stones, Kiss, Eagles, Bob Seger, Rod Stewart and others) are...

FWIW

JD Spradlin has said he expects "new tour dates to be added" about 4 or 5 times this week

I don't think he would be allowed to say that if it wasn't true

Who knows

This is pretty embarrassing. As a 20 year parrothead with about 50 or 60 shows under his belt, i have no idea what MOTM is. I know its a few days of 'trop rocking' and living the KW life but..... How do i get involved, can i just show up? Do i need tickets in advance ? Do we just stay anywhere on KW...

Re: Who’s Going to Jones Beach Aug 2 2018?

Great day at Jones Beach. My first time back since 2004 and it was a fantastic day all around. Parking was easy and free. Security and police let fans be fans unlike how it was in 2004. Great weather, better company, great hospitality from BNers, BNer friends, and non-BNers we got to spend the day ...

Jones Beach Tailgating

Let me preference by saying "maybe it was just my location or "maybe I'm getting old" but.........
I feel the Tailgating is becoming less and less about the music/lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett/ being a Parrothead and more about teenagers needing a place to drink.

Re: Kenny Chesney version of Trying to Reason

I'm not really much of a Kenny Chesney fan. I can't say I totally dislike him but every time I hear one of his songs I wind up saying to whoever I'm with "Gee, Jimmy Buffett wrote that same song 25 years ago." I don't know, maybe I'm just old. I don't think there is a lot to read into the change in ...

Re: Who’s Going to Jones Beach Aug 2 2018?

Last I was at Jones Beach was 2004. What is the parking situation like now? Back then it was just like $10 to park We were planning on parking wherever then walk over to where everyone is unless things have changed. 2016....I arrived at 715am and could not get in the main parking lot (4 or 5.

Re: Escape to Margaritaville

I don't think it has anything to do with "snobs" on Broadway, it has to do with being able to appeal to a wide audience in order to be successful. Buffett doesn't appeal to that wide an audience. Too many people seem to think BN is a microcosm of society, it isn't. We may be fans, but the overwhelm...

Re: SOASOAS 2018 TOUR Opening Song?

It would be nice if he would open with Brown Eyed Girl, followed by 5 O’clock Somewhere and then Knee Deep, the Mac – Allman Brothers thing, Take it Easy and finally ‘Cover du Jour’.  This way I can spend an extra hour in the parking lot and walk in when Jimmy Buffett is ready to sing Jimmy Buffett ...

Re: Who's going to Bristow Sat Aug 4th?

Hey All
I hate asking this question but what is the tailgate like in Bristow?
My usual road trip is to Boston but I don't think that will happen this year. Virginia /August 4 work well.

Is it an early parking lot?
Great crowd ??

Re: Alpine Reopening

Maybe Wrigley not selling is a sign of the times. Fenway isn't selling either. When a quarter or more of the set list at almost every show is cover tunes, it could be that people are tired of seeing what's rapidly becoming a lounge act. I became a Jimmy Buffett fan because I like Jimmy Buffett musi...
