1995 Jimmy Buffett Softball Team Jersey Fruit CakesGo Back
This item originates from the infamous collection of Jack Boyle, Concert Promoter, owner of The Cellar Door where Neil Young & Miles Davis both recorded albums “LIVE.” “Jack was one of the original powerhouse architects of the concert industry”. Boyle died in 2017.
Jack turned Washington’s Cellar Door music club into a venue that hosted the likes of John Denver, Muddy Watters to Joni Mitchell and he went on to build a lucrative production and promotion empire that booked hundreds of acts across the country. He also built many concert venues and was based for many years in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Boyle was also a 2018 Florida Music Awards Hall of Fame inductee. In 2005, Billboard honored Boyle with the Legend of Live award.
Cellar Door Productions, named for Mr. Boyle’s flagship venue, produced more than 500 events each year and reportedly grossed up to $100 million annually, booking acts such as The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Pink Floyd, the Dave Matthews Band, U2, and The Who, as well as overseeing high-profile events including Fourth of July concerts on the Mall and entertainment for President Ronald Reagan’s second inauguration.
From the Jack Boyle collection is this Cellar Door special edition Jimmy Buffett “Fruitcakes” jersey. The pinstriped jersey highlights the famous tour named after the album. “Fruitcakes” is displayed across the front in blue and the tour mentioned via embroidery in the chest pocket area. The sleeve mentions the location of the event/sponsor. Quitman USA is the manufacturer and it is a [size] L.
The 1994 Fruitcakes Tour, named after the album of the same name, saw Jimmy and the Reefers make 30 stops from Jones Beach to Irvine and places in-between. The “Fruitcakes” tour so saw the return of a Horn Section in the Coral Reefer Band for the first time since 1988.
