Margaritaville Cincinnati Hosts Event Ahead of Grand Opening

February 27th, 2013

The newest Margaritaville doesn’t open until Monday, but a few hundred lucky parrotheads were able to get a sneak peak inside the 14,000 sq. ft. restaurant on Wednesday night as part of the Horseshoe Casino’s controlled demonstration for regulators.

With seating for 400, Margaritaville Cincinnati features an open-air dining patio that connects to the casino’s urban plaza and event lawn. The restaurant will also offer a Margaritaville retail store. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is the first of four restaurants that will be located at Horseshoe Cincinnati.

Thanks to our twitter follower @obc2 for providing us with some photos from inside the restaurant:

Get Mishka’s New EP, Featuring Jimmy Buffett

February 27th, 2013

Renowned reggae artist Mishka has released a new EP entitled Ocean Is My Potion.

The record features Jimmy Buffett on two of the tracks, and is available now at iTunes for $5.99.

  1. Ocean Is My Potion (feat. Jimmy Buffett)
  2. Love You (When I’m Close To You)
  3. Rebel Soul
  4. Love and Roots
  5. When The Rain Comes Down
  6. Constant Revolution
  7. Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season (feat. Jimmy Buffett)

Celebrated recording artist Mishka’s new release, the “Ocean Is My Potion” EP, is a journey back to his musical roots. Like Mishka himself, the album is imprinted with the sounds and emotions of the islands, with influences that range from the heavy bass of Reggae to the gulf and western stylings of Jimmy Buffett.

Mishka first met Jimmy Buffett when he was an entrepreneurial five year-old delivering fresh croissants to Jimmy’s sailboat in the French West Indies. The musician and young Mishka formed a fast bond, and Jimmy wrote and recorded a song about him called, “Chanson Pour Les Petis Enfants” which translates to, “Song For Little Children.”

When preparing to record his latest album, Mishka handpicked his support team, which led him back to his old friend from the islands. This album will be his first release on Mailboat Records.

Recorded at the famed Shrimpboat Sound Studio in Key West, the album features Mishka’s take on the Jimmy Buffett classic, “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season.” The track features both famed musician Mac McAnally and Jimmy Buffett himself.

Born in Bermuda and raised in the Caribbean, Mishka’s music is a natural fit for Mailboat Records. Caribbean at its core, with an eclectic sound that blends island beats with mellow acoustic ballads, the music is amplified by the messages of love and social justice that are delivered straight from Mishka’s heart.

Mishka has played and toured with many artists, most notably Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown, Dirty Heads, Matisyahu and the Roots.
