Legendary rock musician Jimmy Buffett will perform live at the Coyote Drive-In in Texas.  The full length concert will be livecast via satellite transmission exclusively to dozens of select drive-in theatre sites across the United States, including the Midway Drive-In located in Dixon, IL!  With popular hit songs such as ‘Margaritaville,’ ‘Cheeseburger In Paradise,’ and ‘Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes,’ singer Jimmy Buffett has amassed legions of dedicated fans worldwide, commonly referred to as “Parrotheads.” His musical style, described as “gulf and western,” reflects a combination of Caribbean themed rock with country and western along with folk music influences.

Technological advancements in digital projection and satellite delivery allow us at the Midway Drive-In to present a live concert performance in high definition with ultra bright light output on our huge 90 foot wide screen.   State of the art digital stereo sound is delivered to each vehicle using high fidelity FM broadcast.
