This weekend Hawai`i favorite Jimmy Buffett is back. HPR’s Dave Lawrence got a call from his longtime keyboardist and Music Director Michael Utley, who, prior to joining Jimmy’s Coral Reefer Band, got experience playing with some other legendary artists, including one with long connections to Hawai`i.
Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band perform Friday at the MACC in Kahului, Maui and Sunday at the Waikiki Shell. Their website is http://www.margaritaville.com/.
See some live videos of Michael and the band and hear our complete interview below.
Our engineer will be working this Saturday on HPR-1 and HPR-2 for O'ahu North Shore. Power should be back to full strength once he's finished. All other transmitters are operating normally.
