Jimmy Buffett dropped by the New Orleans Jazz Fest on Friday and joined Dave Matthews onstage during his set.

As the Jazz Fest schedule read, the closing set at the Acura Stage on Friday (May 7), was simply Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, but don’t let the simple title nor the lack of backing musicians onstage fool you: These two guitarists brought a few surprises.

Near the end of the pair’s 90-minute set, a stagehand brought out an extra microphone stand as Matthews introduced who would soon stand behind it: Jimmy Buffett, a longtime fan of Jazz Fest and New Orleans.

“I got a friend who wanted to come because he’s in town. I run into this man in odd places … because much the same way some people get places in a car or on a bike, this man just hops on his plane,” Matthews said.

Buffett, wearing shorts and a salmon-colored ball cap, arrived with his own guitar slung over one shoulder.

“I hope if I stand onstage long enough next to Tim Reynolds, I’ll play like him,” he said, later adding, “Allen Toussaint brought this weather today.”

Because New Orleans “is a pirate town,” Buffett explained, the trio took on his “A Pirate Looks at 40.”

From the San Diego Union Tribune:

This will mark Buffett’s fourth concert here in barely a year.

Last September, he headlined the second night of the three-day KAABOO Del Mar festival, where he drew a crowd estimated at around 25,000. Buffett returned in October to perform his first show at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay since 1984. It sold out in a matter of minutes.
