Buffett cover band comes to Buford

BUFORD -- If you feel like wasting away in Margaritaville or eating your cheeseburger in paradise, you don't need to leave Gwinnett County. On Saturday, A1A, an Atlanta-based Jimmy Buffett tribute band, is performing at Lake Lanier Island Resorts.

The band will play several cover songs to take you away to the beach while sitting in the resort's newly redesigned Peachtree Point Amphitheater.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $16 to $26. To purchase tickets in advance, visit www.lakelanierislands.com/events. For more information about the concert, email Kate Davis at kdavis@lakelanierislands.com.-- From staff reports
