"Can't you feel 'em circlin', honey, Can't you feel 'em swimmin' around?"  Here come the Parrotheads!   Jimmy Buffett & the Coral Reefer band make their annual appearance in Atlantic City ...this weekend and that gets my top billing, but not without  some top-notch competition!  Your choices for live music are plentiful in South Jersey, for sure.  But, for sheer  spectacle,  Jimmy's dedicated, and somewhat crazed fans is hard to beat!

Here's a listing of this weekend's best bests, in the casinos and elsewhere.  Enjoy!
