Some cover bands limit themselves to one era, or one band, or even one song played over and over—but not so with the Landsharks. Veterans of the stage at Walt Disney World, Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Café, and the Patriots big-game victory party in 2005, the seven-piece ensemble’s repertoire takes on guises that span decades and themes but always holds a special affinity for Buffet’s island-hopping daydreaming. The group has even played with the man himself on several occasions. At The Carlyle Club, the Landsharks don their Hawaiian shirts for a beach bash, pulling out Jimmy Buffett favorites between jams from Bob Marley, Chubby Checker, and UB40. Concertgoers can sing along in their Landsharks T-shirt and blow up their inflatable shark to complete their beach experience and scare unsuspecting crowd surfers.<p>
The Carlyle Club
An old-fashioned ambiance reigns in The Carlyle Club, expressed in an art-deco design scheme, frequent visits from respected jazz musicians, and guests’ predilections for saying “horse feathers.” Tall palm fronds back cushy leather booths and elegant marble tables loiter near the bar, all within sight of the intimate, blue-curtained stage. A bow-tied wait staff completes the back-in-time vibe, as do vintage posters and the intricately patterned wallpaper.
