"Livecast" at the Stardust Drive-In
Thursday - June 19th
rock musician Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefers will be performing in a first
of its kind ‘Live At The Drive-In’ concert on Thursday, June 19. The concert
will be livecast via satellite transmission from the Coyote Drive-In, located in
Fort Worth, Texas, exclusively to dozens of select drive-in theatre sites across
the United States, including middle Tennessee's Stardust Drive-In Theatre located just
35 minutes from Nashville in Watertown, TN.
With technological advancements in digital projection and satellite delivery,
properly equipped drive-in theatres are now capable of presenting a live concert
performance in high definition with ultra bright light output on outdoor screens
a hundred feet wide, or larger. CD quality sound is delivered to each vehicle
using high fidelity FM broadcast.
With popular hit songs such as ‘Margaritaville,’ ‘Cheeseburger In
Paradise,’ and ‘Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes,’ singer Jimmy
Buffett has amassed legions of dedicated fans worldwide, commonly referred to as
“Parrotheads.” His musical style, described as “gulf and western,”
reflects a combination of Caribbean themed rock with country and western along
with folk music influences.
