“Captn Jac was the latest to entertain the Marco Players Theatre crowd. Captn Jac has been doing his Jimmy Buffett tribute show for years—but his performance Monday July 31 showed that he has plenty of Trop-Rock chops himself.
It’s hard not to think of Jimmy Buffett— who wrote the Tiki Bar song to end all Tiki Bar songs, “Margaritaville”—when listening to Captn Jac. And Captn Jac doesn’t hide his affection for Buffett, wearing a Margaritaville ball cap to top his unusual jacket that looks like a prop from a bygone pirate movie. Captn Jac even performed at Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant in Key West.
Captn Jac’s set of originals had the audience clapping their hands and tapping their feet as the hour seemed to slip by quickly. But there was more for the audience after a get-together provided the audience an opportunity to enjoy a drink, conversation, and pick up a CD or two. Following a question and answer period, Captn Jac joined JRobert and friends for a jam session that many feel is a highlight of the Florida Songwriter Showcase.”
