Long Islanders are well-acquainted with Buffett’s songs and his island lifestyle, making margaritas famous in song. Although there are no Margaritavilles here on Long Island, parrot heads – as fans of Buffett are called – would bring the party to Jones Beach every summer.

Buffett also made Long Island his home. He kept a place in Sag Harbor. Just this July, Buffett appeared on local radio station WLNG to debut his new song “My Gummy Just Kicked In.
