Buffett was Workin’ and Playin’ in Houston!

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band perform last night at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, TX. It was the first large venue show for the 2015 Workin’ n’ Playin’ Tour.

The set list from the show is now available. Buffett and the band played 28 songs including “Ragtop Day”, “The Great Filling Station Holdup”, “Off To See The Lizard”, “Stars On The Water”, “If I Had A Boat”, “Pascagoula Run”, “Jolly Mon Sing”, “Last Man Standing”, “Island”, and “Window on the World”.

The show included the debut of a new song that Buffett and Mac McAnally wrote called “Workin’ n’ Playin’”. Buffett ended the show with the song “Defying Gravity”.

Robert Greenidge performed an instrumental medley on the steel pan drums that included “King of Somewhere Hot”, “Hot Hot Hot”, and “Lage Nom Ai”.

The Houston Chronicle has a review of the show: “Surf’s up, way up, at Jimmy Buffett concert

Jimmy Buffett widened his audience Thursday night at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Not horizontally past the back fence of the lawn. Vertically into space.

Buffett’s latest stop on his “Workin’ and Playin’ 2015″ tour was beamed to the International Space Station, where U.S. astronaut and admitted Parrothead Terry Virts has been spending the past six months doing experiments and racking up frequent flier miles.

Virts appeared on a big screen behind Buffett during the show — urging concert fans to get involved in science and read up on the U.S. space program.

Buffett wore a plain yellow T-shirt, lavender wristbands and purple shorts. No shoes, no socks. Percentage of his tour’s production budget spent on wardrobe – $17.95.

This week’s historic flood spared the Pavilion. Buffett walked onstage and shouted, “The land is dry, let’s have a party!”

From cmptrman: “Jimmy put on a great show tonight at Stubb’s BBQ in Austin, TX. He played for about 90 minutes with the full band and no break, followed by a group encore and then a solo encore after everyone else left the stage. The crowd was very much into the show, and you could tell Jimmy and the Coral Reefers were getting energy from the crowd as well. On top of the amazing show, he also told the audience he was “leaving all the money from this show” to help victims of the recent floods in Austin and Central Texas. Truly a class act through and through.”

The Workin’ and Playin’ Tour kicks of on Thursday May 28th at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, TX

St Thomas Margaritaville Vacation Club

From PRLog: “A Preview of the new St Thomas Margaritaville

Behind the laid-back theme of island tunes and lazy afternoons are a team of perfectionists that are working around the clock to finish the St Thomas Margaritaville Vacation Club, a partnership between Wyndham St Thomas Development LLC and Jimmy Buffett.

Formerly the Renaissance Grand Beach Palace, Wyndham has been engaged in a more than $100M renovation and modernization program that reinvents the resort as a 262 unit Margaritaville themed resort. While guests will experience a relaxed and carefree atmosphere, behind the scenes architects and builders take the task of shaping the experience very seriously.

Archiform 3D, an international company that specializes in shaping new property developments, was engaged in October last year to assist, combining the architectural and landscape designs to show everyone where the project is heading. 3D renderings were initially produced and the refinement process began, shaping each part to perfection, working around established trees and saving what could have been a small fortune in on-site experiments. A virtual tour was later produced, allowing potential buyers into the Vacation Club to tour what is essentially the heart of the experience.

The tour takes viewers past the “5 o’clock somewhere bar”, the swimming pool and the “LandShark Beach Bar”. Wyndham started booking guests in March and are due to open next month, but if you cant wait until then check out Archiform 3D’s online virtual tour.

The $147 million Margaritaville, at Johnson Street and State Road A1A, will include eight restaurants and bars, oceanside pools, a FlowRider wave ride, spa and fitness center and 30,000 square feet of convention space.

“We look forward to welcoming our first guests,” General Manager Cate Farmer said in a news release Tuesday. Reservations are being accepted for stays starting Oct. 1, but the date will be adjusted when a firm opening date is set, the spokewoman said.

So far, the Margaritaville has said only that it will open in “summer 2015.” Hotel developer Lon Tabatchnick told city commissioners in April that Margaritaville could open after mid-July and before Labor Day, if all goes as planned.

Reservations are available by calling 844-5OCLOCK (844-562-5625) or at www.MargaritavilleResorts.com.

Buffett delivers UM Commencement Speech

From the Miami Herald: “Buffett dispenses life wisdom to UM grads and parrotheads everywhere

With flip flops on his feet, Jimmy Buffett looked out at hundreds of University of Miami graduates and grabbed the pink stole that had just been draped around his neck to mark his new and lofty honorary degree.

“I started off as a bar singer in Coral Gables,” he told students. “And I got a doctorate now.”

The singer-songwriter brought his signature laid-back island style, along with lots of salty advice, as commencement speaker at a Friday ceremony that also was one of the last for UM President Donna Shalala after 14 years at the helm.

Buffett told the crowd he was inspired to become a marine biologist after visiting the aquarium while on vacation in Florida with his family – and he wanted to study at UM.

“I wanted to be Jacques Cousteau with a Southern accent,” he said.

The closest he got was a nearby bar that’s now called Titanic Restaurant and Brewery, where Buffett said he landed his first paying gig.

He distilled his advice into a checklist for the “ever-elusive future.” The four bits of wisdom he shared: Everything in moderation. Make your avocation your vocation. Go see the world. And “be Santa Claus when you can.”

Wearing aviator sunglasses (he said he forgot his reading glasses,) Buffett encouraged students to get out and see the world. “Use your time well. Beware of falling into the sedentary trap.”
