Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band Brings Island Life to Kansas City

James "Jimmy" William 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". He has a devoted base of fans known as "Parrotheads".

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.

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.
