Buffett Entertains Troops on USS Kearsarge

August 7th, 2019


When Jimmy Buffett was in the Virginia Beach area last week he visited the USS Kearsarge and performed for the troops:

Sailors and Marines with the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group (ARG), including its embarked units who returned from a seven-month deployment July 18, were treated to a rare shipboard performance by the legendary music artist Jimmy Buffett August 2.

Buffett, who is in the area for a concert in Virginia Beach, learned the ship had recently returned from a deployment and performed for the crew to show his appreciation for their sacrifice and service.

“Welcome home,” said Buffett. “Both Kearsarge and I were born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, so I feel a kindred spirit to your wonderful ship.”

Buffett thanked the crew for providing humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to the people of Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

“We decided to come play for you to thank you all for what you do for us,” said Buffett. “The least we could do is come take you away to Margaritaville.”

“We are grateful and humbled to have hosted Jimmy Buffett onboard Kearsarge today. He is a longtime friend of the Navy and came specifically to welcome the crew home from our seven-month deployment,” said Capt. Jason Rimmer, Kearsarge’s commanding officer. “It was absolutely terrific to show him the ship and hear his iconic songs in our hangar bay.”

During the performance Buffett sang classics such as “Margaritaville,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “Son of a Son of a Sailor.”

“I’m always thankful to anyone who takes time to show their appreciation for our service and sacrifice,” said Legalman 1st Class Keiana Zinnah, a Kearsarge ARG Sailor. “This time I had the added bonus of watching the incredible Jimmy Buffett perform.”

While onboard, Buffett took a tour of the ship, met with Sailors and their families and took a few pictures with adoring fans or “Parrotheads” of all ranks and ages. The visit was a truly memorable experience for the Kearsarge ARG team who greatly appreciate Buffett for volunteering his time to deliver the sweet sounds of his signature tropical rock to their ears and help the crew celebrate good times at home again with family and friends.

Buffett to Sing National Anthem Before Saints NFC Championship Game

January 16th, 2019


The New Orleans Saints play this Sunday in the NFC Championship against the Los Angeles Rams in the Superdome and one of New Orleans’ favorite sons will perform the national anthem:

It’s not like New Orleans Saints fans really need much help getting amped up for Sunday’s NFC Championship tilt against the Los Angeles Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

But they’re going to get it anyway, and from some noteworthy performers.

Inside the Superdome, Gulf Coast native and Saints superfan Jimmy Buffett — who has not only attended Saints games and practices in the past but has also had Saints head coach Sean Payton perform with him on on-stage — will perform the National Anthem before the game.

This is not the first time Jimmy will sing the national anthem at a Saints game. He last did the deed in 2006.

The NFC Championship game will air at 3:05pm ET on Fox.
