This weekend’s concert in Cambridge will pay tribute to Buffett with performances of a trio of holiday songs recorded by the singer: “Merry Christmas Alabama,” “Santa Stole Thanksgiving,” and “Christmas Island.” Peter believes the tunes showcase not only the “humorous side of Buffett” but also his skill as a songwriter. “Jimmy was a deep writer and an amazing lyricist,” said Peter, the lead guitarist for the Coral Reefer Band. “ ‘Santa Stole Thanksgiving’ is one of those songs where you look at the lyrics and you’re like, ‘This is amazing.’ ” ...

Mr. Utley, the music of Jimmy and the coral reefers has helped people through some difficult times in their lives. I know it has helped me escape many times in my mind when I was basically working a full time job, being a full time caregiver in a different town for both of my elderly parents and also trying to maintain a solid marriage. You have all helped me get through tough times for many years. And watching you all in concert, you make us feel like we are all friends. As a result, jimmy’s death hit me very hard.
What a fantastic interview. A must for all Parrotheads. And so much I learned about Michael’s career, priceless.
Mr Utley is from my hometown, Blytheville, AR!!
Hi Paul Leslie❤
That's "Mr. Utley"!!!!❣️
Mr. Utley! Where ya gonna go when that volcano blow!?!

Greg "Fingers" Taylor passed away on November 23, 2023 at the age of 71. He played harmonica for Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band from 1974 until 2000. Fingers and Buffett recorded “A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean” in 1973. It marks the first reference to Buffett’s backup band as “The Coral Reefer Band” and was the first album on which long-time Reefers Michael Utley and Taylor played. In 1974 Buffett called Taylor to ask him to tour with him as part of the Coral Reefer Band. Taylor continued to play in the band until 2000. ... See MoreSee Less
Such a fabulous entertainer! Is up with Jimmy! The band back together! ￼
He was the Soul of The Captain's music 🙏❤🙏
I just loved and listened to his harmonica playing over and over, practicing and learning his style. His beautiful feel for the harmonica made me a way better player than I ever would have been without his influence. Such sad news
Very talented harp player…you & JB have been reunited. Sail on Greg
So sad to hear this. Loved his playing! I also play harmonica and he was one of the best!
