Main St., Mansfield, MA JIMMY BUFFETT & THE CORAL REEFER BAND -- August 20, 2016. Singer, songwriter, author, actor, and businessman Jimmy Buffett has been a staple on the American concert circuit since the early 1970s. Known for his anecdotal songs about a laid-back life on the beach, Buffett has described his music as =drunken Caribbean rock 'n' roll," or Gulf-and-Western, as it has been dubbed by others. Buffett moved to Nashville in the late 1960s with the dream of becoming a country singer, and he released his debut album in 1970. After his first marriage fell apart, he left Nashville for Key West and it was there that he developed the easy-going beach-bum persona that he has become known for. With 28 studio albums under his belt, and sell-out shows year after year, it's no wonder that Buffett has amassed a large and incredibly loyal following known as =Parrot Heads." Buf- fett will deliver an unforgettable night of fun times, hilarious stories and great music!!! SHALIN LIU PERFORMANCE CENTER 37 Main Street, Rockport, MA 978-546-7391 BOOKER T.

WILBUR THEATRE 246 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 617-248-9700 BILL MAHER -- August 27, 2016. Bill Maher has set the boundaries of political humour on what is just about allowed on American television, yet still manages to push the envelope on a frequent basis. His combination of unflinching honesty and blunt obersations have earned him a staggering 23 Emmy nominations, and a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Particularly known for his hugely critical views on religion, Maher's humor squares to the left of center, and has more often than not set his crosshairs on the right-wing political movement {particularly the Tea Party), and shows a vociferous support for universal health care, same-sex marriage and environ- mentalism. However, since the events of 9/11, he has supported racial profiling at transport hubs, and is a supporter of gun rights. As well as his long-running television panel show Real Time with Bill Maher, he is still a keen participant on the political comedy circuit. ._~D- @
