The Orange County Register has a review of Saturday’s Irvine Show: “Smooth sailing for Jimmy Buffett“.
They had this to say about Jimmy: “Clad in an aloha shirt, lime-green shorts and bare feet, the balding entertainer resembled Capt. Stubing of ‘The Love Boat’ after a particularly severe mid-life crisis”.
The article goes on to say: The evening’s attempts at humor fell a bit flat, though the beer-bong contingent seemed to think everything was a hoot.
Sometimes, Buffett can seem like a prisoner in his own party, as when he attempted an “unplugged” mini-set right after intermission .. many in the crowd buzzed restlessly – they’d just fetched fresh beers and were itching to do the “Fins” dance.
