James William "Jimmy" Buffett (born December 25, 1946) is an American singer–songwriter, author, actor, and businessman. He is best known for his music, which often portrays an "island escapism" lifestyle, and the often humorous things he has experienced throughout his life. 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". He has a devoted base of fans known as "Parrotheads.”
Jimmy recently released a new record, Songs From St. Somewhere, on Mailboat Records. The album, with 15 new songs plus a bonus track, was recorded last spring in various locales including Key West, Nashville, Miami, St. Bart’s and London. "Too Drunk To Karaoke", the first single, is a duet with Toby Keith and the video was shot in Nashville. Jimmy has been performing this song, as well as "I Want To Go Back To Cartagena", "Somethin' 'Bout A Boat" and "Oldest Surfer On The Beach" on tour.
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, "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Margaritaville". He owns the Margaritaville Cafe restaurant chain and co-developed the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant concept with OSI Restaurant Partners (parent of Outback Steakhouse), which operates the chain under a licensing agreement with Buffett.
“Jimmy Buffett will be the biggest concert events to play at Bethel Woods this year and has been one of the most requested artists from our patrons,” said Darlene Fedun, Chief Executive Officer of Bethel Woods, a not-for-profit cultural organization. “Jimmy Buffett is an icon in the music world, and we are honored to have him perform for the first time at the historically significant site of the Woodstock festival.”
