Jimmy Buffett Tribute Coming to La Porte

(La Porte, IN) - Another summer event in downtown La Porte should have a tropical feel and attract many Parrotheads.


A Jimmy Buffett tribute band called South of Disorder is on the calendar. The night's theme will be "Cheeseburger in Paradise," the name of one of the biggest hit songs from Buffett during his long career.


Brett Binversie, the Special Events Coordinator for the city, said the plan is to have food vendors compete for the best cheeseburger at the event.


"We're going to have a burger cook-off," Binversie said.


The band, expected to play other Buffett favorites like Margaritaville, will play on an outdoor stage at State and Monroe streets. The concert scheduled for August 19 is part of the Friday Night Live series featuring a special event on the third Friday of each summer month.


Parrotheads is the name for Buffett fans, whose songs often have a tropical theme and sound to the music.
