Bayside Music Festival Presents

Cheeseburger in Paradise Concert!

Join us downtown on the dock in St. Ignace for our Cheeseburger in Paradise tribute to Jimmy Buffet's style of  Caribbean Soul. Enjoy the carnival atmosphere as the music of Air Margaritaville takes you away to tropical islands, warm ocean breezes and friendly beach bars. Dance the night away with fellow Parrot Heads, as they celebrate the music and the lifestyle Buffet made famous.  The festivities begin at 5:00 p.m. with Mike Ridley entertaining you with his Folk Music & Tales from 5:00-6:00 p.m., followed by a sound check with Air Margaritaville from 6:00-6:30 p.m., more from Mike Ridley, and then Air Margaritaville will perform from 7:30-10:00 p.m.

About the Band

Their second CD, “Living on Island Time”, a collection of mostly original tunes, includes the fan favorites “Beach Bar” and "Whatever It Was (I Didn’t Do It)”.  Their second live recording, “Alive Along the North Coast” was released in 2009.
