Tuesday night, Jimmy Buffett made his pass through the Bay Area with his 2009 tour: SummerZcool. He was just in the area last Fall, but that did not stop MA and me from heading out to spend the evening with him.

For the first time since 1991, he performed at the Concord Pavilion, now called Sleep Train Pavilion, but even Jimmy still calls it by its original name.

The tour name is exceptionally clever with a double entendre...summer's cool/summer school! Jimmy's "theme" was a spoof on summer school, but one that could be enjoyed by all of us "students" and we all passed...I will suspect some passed out, particularly the older man a few rows in front of us who danced up and down like an Engergizer Bunny through the whole show.

So the evening started with a photo shoot of us in our Parrot Head garb.

We brought a picnic dinner from Kinder's...sandwiches, salads, baked beans...and homemade fresh fruit crisp from home.

Big drinkers that we are, we shared a large glass of Jimmy's Landshark Lager beer...really tasty...there will be more in our future.

As always, there was a line for tee shirts and a line for beer.

Then, it was show time. These few shots will hopefully give you a sense of the fun on the 2 1/2 hour SummerZcool concert!

Until the next time, Jimmy...
