|About one hour ago I was enjoying Jimmy Buffett at The Moon down Seminole Drive|
Tonight we rode our scooter to the club to see Jimmy Buffett. Bob Graham's daughter Gwen is running for US Congress and Jimmy Buffett did a free concert to support her campaign. The place holds maybe 500 people - but we were able to walk up to within 15 feet of the stage. We left our house at 6:15 - we thought the concert was to start at 7:00. At 6:30 - down went the lights and up went the show.
Gwen Graham and Bob her father - introduced Jimmy Buffett and his 3 piece band. It was just two guitars and a light set of drums - no sticks. Most of the folks there knew all the words to the songs - and did not seem too concerned about the election. Heck - Lulu and I already voted yesterday. But the music was nice - the atmosphere fantastic.
At 7:15 - the lights went up and we got on our scooter and were home before 7:30.
My pictures and video got pretty good.
Yes - we both voted for Gwen Graham - I think.
Gwen Graham is running for Congress. Funny - I was processing the pictures using iPhoto - it did not know the two Grahams - and it thought that was me in the middle. Now - who is more famous?
Free tickets were available at the Gwen Graham for Congress office
GwenGraham and Bob Graham
You may remember Bob Graham - he was governor of Florida - US Senator for Florida - he even ran for US President. He looks like Jim Thorpe - both Jim and Bob are Cherokee Indian. Some Cherokees ran away from North Carolina to Florida and became Seminoles.
Jimmy Buffett did a great 45 minute set of his hits.
Lulu the Parrot Head
You can see Jimmy photobombing between our heads.
The three piece band was enjoyed by a crowd of maybe 500 - a very old crowd. Most of them knew all the words.
Jimmy also supports amendment 2 - medical marijuana. It must get 60% of the vote to pass. Democrats are for it - Republicans against it.
After the last song - we hopped on our scooter and were home in a couple minutes.
