‘Jimmy Buffett’


Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band @ La Cigale – Paris (FR) – 27.09.2014

Jimmy Buffett loves Paris, Shopping “Haute Couture”,  “Le Vin Rouge Francais” and  “La Cuisine Francaise”. So It was very exciting, when again two concerts were announced for September 2014 in the elegant La Cigale club in Paris by the top promoter – Gérard Drouot.

The second show on Saturday, was the non-seated one in the grand-auditorium, so it was the more exciting one to visit. Already in the afternoon the lovely fans – Parrotheads  – were invading the bars and places in the lovely quarter of Monmartre with the beautiful church of Sacré Coeur. They were dressed in most colorful bikinis, shirts, trousers and bast-skirts. A picturesque view! When Jimmy arrived at La Cigale he was welcoming in hyper-symapthic, utmost natural manner some die-hard Parrotheads.

A lovely, sympatico couple from Tasmania, extra travellin‘ to Paris for Jimmy… VOW*****

Inside La Cigale the party started by the beads-chase, thrown by Marcus the fisherman. He was dressed like a pirate captain and throwing them by pride.

When the Coral Reefer Band started with “Brown Eyed Girl” and Jimmy hailed the stage there was thunderous applause. He played first his electric guitar and it was specially Robert Greenidge on steel drums, John Lovell on trumpet and Eric Darken on percussion to enthuse by their spicy “Rhum” sound plays. Their musical counterparts were the rockin’ men – Peter Mayer & Mac McAnally – on guitars. The Parrotheads went crazy goin’ on dancin’ and singin’ as shanty background-choir by By “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes”. Jimmy was utmost strong by vocals in best mood, he entitles the show like a church-mass.  The Parrotheads went crazy goin’ on dancin’ and singin’ as shanty background-choir by “Volcano” with the calypso-reggae-rhythms. It was Michael Utley by his virtuoso  keyboard-solos to be conspicious. He was also the musical director. Off course JB’s mega-hit “Cheeseburger in Paradise” was one of the song-highlights. By his presence he definitely was in the town of the Seine and notre Dame.  He expressed his amour, grace to one of the most beautiful capitals in the world by “He Went To Paris”, with hot percussion by Eric and drums-grooves specially by Roger Guth on drums.  The time went by like on a windy-speed-ride on a clipper and “Margaritaville” was his special ceremony for his company and as loud-blast celebrated by the Parrotheads. Please come back to Paris soon on a “Lovely Cruise”. Jimmy played this final song solo on his acoustic six-string. The final thunderstorm-applause was his, by a long standout and shake hands he was saluting the Parrotheads.
