Img_1729Exciting news for Sandbar fans!

Jimmy Buffett is finally within close range, and four hours is probably as good as we’re going to get. According to Back to Rockville, a music blog I subscribe to, he’ll be at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis with the Coral Reefer Band on Thursday, April 24.

Tickets are on sale Monday, March 10, at 10 a.m. They’re available online through Ticketmaster or LiveNation, or you can call in your order. There’s a limit of six tickets per person.

He’s also playing in Dallas the following Saturday, if you’re up for a longer road trip.

The last time Jimmy played St. Louis, The Sandbar sponsored a bus trip to the show. It was so long ago that I can’t even tell you what year it was, and I have pictures somewhere but they aren’t digital so they aren’t on my computer to share with you. I do remember that it rained hard during the show and we were soaked, but it was fun.

We aren’t doing a bus trip this time, but there are rumors of Sandbar friends or family attending one or the other or both shows.
