In celebration of legendary Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia’s 80th birthday, which occurred this past Monday, Aug. 1, Jimmy Buffett performed a cover of the seminal Robert Hunter penned number, “Scarlet Begonias” while on stage at the Maine Savings Amphitheater in Bangor, Maine, last night. 

Following a hefty rain delay, his 28-song set ensued as Buffett reminisced on the times he and his band spent performing with the Grateful Dead years ago. He also offered a shout-out to the Deadheads in the crowd before a groovy light display and hypnotic imagery engulfed the stage.

Prior to the start of the song, Buffett addressed the crowd; he stated: “Jerry, wherever you are, here you go.” Then, he jumped into the tune which followed a run-through of the classic island number, “Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude,” the title track off the musicians’ seventh studio album, which was released in 1977. 

Watch Jimmy Buffet’s tribute cover of “Scarlet Begonias” at the Maine Savings Amphitheater below.
