Together they are the band that shaped the tunes, brought out the chill melodies and made the lifestyle into the real thing.
“The balding, soon-to-be-50 Buffett knows what his audience expects, and he delivers with more energy than would be expected as the four-month tour winds down. With a Floridascape as a backdrop, Buffett informed the crowd, "Our job is to prolong the summer as long as possible." The harmonies were hot, the steel drums festive, and the guitars, horns and rhythm section spirited. Mac McAnally, in particular, provided a pleasing vocal balance to the rowdy Buffett when he was given his turns in the spotlight, and the Coral Reefers' harmonies were sometimes downright beautiful.” – David Rush, Variety.
