The Hartford Marathon Foundation is excited to introduce Changes in Latitudes as our official finish line band!
Changes In Latitudes is the country's premier tribute show to singer songwriter Jimmy Buffett, the master of the tropical life style. They transform every event into the ultimate beach party, recreating the complete Jimmy Buffett concert experience with amazing authenticity. Traveling with a full tropical stage set-up, you’ll believe that you’re at a Buffett show before they play a note. Leader Steve Kareta mimics Jimmy's casual, storyteller style, taking you on a laid-back yet energetic musical trip through the sun-drenched islands of the Caribbean.
