Parrot Heads descended on Hollywood’s ArtsPark Thursday night for a surprise, free concert by Jimmy Buffett and his band.

The “Margaritaville” singer performed in support of Florida’s gubernatorial candidate, Gwen Graham. During the concert, she discussed her platforms and Buffett’s support of her initiatives to conserve Florida wildlife.

Buffett—who inspired the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort, fit with a sculpture of a broken flipflop—performed for about an hour to a packed crowd. During his rendition of “Margaritaville,” he switched up the lyrics and sang, “Some people say there’s a woman to blame, but I know, it’s all Rick Scott’s fault.”

Graham is the daughter of former Florida Gov. Bill Graham. Midterm elections are Aug. 28.
