Drift Away to Paradise with Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band

North Little Rock, the wait is over! Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will perform at Verizon Arena for one night only on Thursday, June 6th at 8 pm, as part of Jimmy Buffett’s “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor” Tour 2019.

Jimmy Buffett is an American musician, songwriter, author, actor, and businessman. He is best known for his music, which often portrays an "island escapism" lifestyle. Together with his Coral Reefer Band, Buffett has recorded hit songs including "Margaritaville" (ranked 234th on the Recording Industry Association of America's list of "Songs of the Century") and "Come Monday".

The Coral Reefer Band has been traveling as long as Jimmy has. The legendary group started out in clubs as a fake band consisting of Kay Pasa, Ms. Kitty Litter, and the legendary Marvin Gardens. In 1975, Jimmy began touring with a real band and the rest is history. Members have come and gone, but the Coral Reefer Band will be around as long as Jimmy is.

For the first time ever, music from the platinum selling 2004 License To Chill was released as a digital and streaming CD worldwide on November 15, 2018. Many musical friends joined Jimmy on this record, including Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney, Clint Black, George Strait, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, Bill Withers and Nanci Griffith.

Aside from his career in music, Buffett is also a best-selling writer and is involved in two restaurant chains named after two of his best-known songs; he owns the Margaritaville Cafe restaurant chain and co-developed the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant chain.
