Welcome to the unofficial fan site for Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band. Their island escapism sound and lifestyle has been charming music lovers for decades.
Gulf and western is a term used to describe the music of Buffett and other similar sounding performers. The name derives from elements in Buffett's early music including musical influence from country and western, along with folk music and lyrical themes from the Gulf of Mexico coast. A critic described Buffett's music as a combination of "tropical languor with country funkiness into what some have called the Key West sound, or Gulf-and-western." If you haven’t heard them or watch them perform, you’ll have a great time!
