Jimmy Buffett was in New Orleans on Saturday night and made a surprise on-stage appearance with Anders Osborne at his show at Tipitina’s.

Anders Osborne typically invites special guests to join him for his annual Holiday Spectacular concerts at Tipitina’s. On Saturday (Dec. 6), the second night of this year’s Spectacular, those guests included a surprise sit-in by Jimmy Buffett.

During the sold-out show’s first set, Buffett joined Osborne, Dave and Tommy Malone, and Osborne’s all-star band for the New Orleans standard “Iko Iko.” Buffett took a seat onstage alongside the others to strum an acoustic guitar and sing.

He’d spent the first part of the evening watching the show from his perch atop an equipment case at the side of the stage. He was non-committal when photographer Erika Goldring asked him if he planned to get up onstage. “He said, ‘Aw, I don’t know. I just came here to watch.’ He thought they were going to be singing Christmas songs.”

    Wow, Jimmy and Anders! That must have been a super surprise for the lucky people who were there. We love Anders on the Blues Cruise – hey, convince Jimmy to join, he would be a ton of fun even if he’s not primarily a blues guy!
