No musician anywhere in the world is more synonymous with summer than legendary singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffet. His island-themed music reminds listeners of humid summer breezes and warm ocean waters even in the depths of winter. Although he is often thought of as a solo artist, when fans buy Jimmy Buffet tickets they are actually heading to events to hear Buffet perform alongside the members of his Coral Reefer Band.
Jimmy Buffet is a native of the U.S. Gulf Coast region, having been born in Pascagoula, Mississippi and growing up in the city of Mobile. His musical styling, often referred to as island escapism, is officially considered to fall into the genres of Gulf and Western, surf music, country, and soft rock.
His musical career began in the city at the heart of country music, Nashville, Tennessee, in the late-1960s. He recorded his first country music album there in 1970, but by 1971 had found his way to Key West, Florida. It was while living in Key West that Buffet developed his trademark beach bum persona. He found inspiration in the laid back tropical life of the Florida Keys, and credits the region with helping him develop his Gulf and Western musical genre.
Over the course of his illustrious career, Buffet has released 27 albums. The most recent album, entitled Songs from St. Somewhere, was released in 2013 and has hints of his inspiration in the title. Jimmy Buffet tickets can often be purchased for shows across the United States, but as a frequent visitor to the Caribbean island of St. Bart's, Buffet also frequently performs through the region.
The concept of "St. Somewhere" pays homage to his time spent in the Caribbean and the inspiration it has provided for his musical style. For many of his fans, Jimmy Buffet tickets have offered them a chance to escape to an island paradise for a few hours even if it's only in their mind. With such a long and distinguished musical career, Buffet has entertained millions of fans at his concerts over the years.
Following his first concert tour in 1976, Buffet has gone on tour at least once each year for a total of 39 events in venues across the United States and around the world. His most recent tours have been in support of his Songs from St. Somewhere album.
