Good for him! He has a deep connection to St. Barts. Although he says he's encouraging travel to St. Barts with a free concert, the people who normally go to St. Barts probably don't need free! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

It certainly wasn't free, but I can say that the Jimmy Buffett, Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney concert in Tallahassee was the best concert we've ever been to!!

I just scored tickets to JB and the Eagles in Orlando in April. I've been to many Buffett concerts, been a fan forever but my first Eagles.

What time do you land? Maybe you could take the high speed ferry over and get there in time to see JB!

There may well be a special ferry that makes a roundtrip just for the concert. That would be the way to go, if you could. As otherwise, you'd also have to find someplace to stay on St Barts, which I assume would be hard just for one night.

Can't remember the name, but we used to hit the bar/restaurant on SBH associated with Buffett and also one time got very close to the house on the private beach that he owned on the island. Used to know SBH like the back of my hand. Our first trip was 30 years ago and when mini-mokes were the standard way of getting around.

Not so odd. Buffett was the opening act for an Eagles tour back in the 70's.

Le Select, Charlie. There are new Mini-Mokes now, made in China I think.

Around 7 or 8 yrs ago when JB put on a free concert in St Barts, we took two fast boats over that were chartered for the concert by groups. When we got over there, we found a lot of chartered boats had gone over from SXM too. It was packed with people. I can only imagine how crowded it will be Christmas week!

Le Select sounds correct. Sort of like on a corner. I used to LOVE the creperie in Gustavia. They knew how to make a real galette.

Charlie, Le CrÍperie a block up from Le Select, is still there. It has changed hands a few times, but it is still going strong. I had lunch there a few weeks ago. CrÍpe Jambon Fromage (Ham and Cheese CrÍpe), and Salted Caramel Ice Cream for dessert. Very nice.

Autour du Rocher is still a ruin. It lost some more roof to Irma, not that it had much left.

As to the concert, I don't know if the Coral Reefers will be there. I've heard a few local musician's names mentioned. Should be a good time though - his past concerts on the quay have been.

Camping World stadium. He is doing a few dates with them including Miami @ the Dolphins stadium. He got his start opening for the Eagles so this is fitting.

I just looked through more of our old pictures from Buffett in 09. The link to Rafting Adventures at sailingsxm.com no longer works. But, I did see in another picture that the Golden Eagle was a tour boat that went over for the concert. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_R...St_Maarten.html
I don't know how many other catamarans survived the hurricane.

We used Great Bay Express ferry service from Bobby's Marina in 2009. I just called them and they are considering doing a special ferry for the concert but they are not sure yet. I think that the more people that give them a call regarding the special ferry, the greater the chance of them adding the special ferry for the concert.

anyone know if there might be a charter plane going between Barbados and St Barths for the show? <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" /> We were supposed to be in SBH during that time but we changed our travel plans to Barbados because of the hurricane...we've looked at commercial flights for getting to SBH for the show, but too iffy and complicated

The show was in the evening, and I think we met the boat in the mid afternoon.
