Jimmy Buffett Jacksonville Concert Feb 7, 2013

This was our first Jimmy Buffett concert and I have to say, it was well worth it!  We are not hard core Parrot Heads or anything, but we've always been big fans of his music, his laid back beachy party vibe and we missed him when he was in town a year or two ago and didn't want to miss it this time.

We heard ahead of time to be sure to check out the tailgaters and they were certainly in full effect.  The arena in downtown Jacksonville is right next to the Jaguars stadium and all the lots were open for parking/tailgating and it appeared that many had been setup for all day festivities. 

We arrived around 7 for the 8pm show and it was dark by then and I didn't want to snap flash shots of random people, so I instead grabbed a few from the site to share and I also included a few of my own videos.

If you get the chance and like his music even a little, I'd definitely say go check it out!  If you can make a whole evening of it and the weather is good, by all means, get a group and tailgate as well!

Had to include this one for Sandy/Jen S.  They love to do pictures with their tongues out and I immediately thought of them on this one!

One of the many tailgating setups.

Being a fan of community shots, this was quite an interesting contraption.  However, I bet it results in more spilled shots than anything else.  Looks fun though, but I'd be careful not to chip a tooth!  :p

 More partiers, complete with a little kiddie pool and a big fin on their vehicle as well.  

 It appeared to be pretty close to a sold-out show, good times!
