According to the Caribbean Journal, Jimmy Buffett will play a free show in Gustavia, St. Barths on December 27th in an effort to bring more visitors to the island that is recovering from hurricane devastation:

Jimmy Buffett, the music superstar and frequent St Barth visitor, is planning to play a free concert in Gustavia on Dec. 27.

The concert will be held on the quai in St Barth’s tiny capital; Buffett will be accompanied by local musician Soley and other musicians from the island.

“He hopes that by performing there he will persuade a few more people to come down for the holidays,” said Stiles Bennet, president and CMO of Wimco Villas. “It’s a fun way for folks to support the island’s recovery.”

Buffett has had a decades-long relationship with the island, and some of his most legendary songs were inspired by St Barth, including One Particular Harbor, Au Tour de Rocher and Cheeseburger in Paradise.

Buffett has in recent years been known to play impromptu sets at St Barth hotspots like Le Select.

As Caribbean Journal reported, St Barth has been making a rapid recovery in the wake of Hurricane Irma; Buffett’s concert should only provide an even bigger boost.

Jimmy Makes Surprise Appearance at Jazz Fest

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.”
