Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | No Comments »

From PlayBill.com: “See Jimmy Buffett Help Open the Box Office For Escape to Margaritaville

The box office at the Marquis Theatre opened for business (and free burgers!) on December 8.

Jimmy Buffett took to the streets of New York City on December 8 to help open the box office for his musical Escape to Margaritaville at Broadway’s Marquis Theatre. Buffett was handing out free hamburgers to theatregoers and passersby—a nod to his song “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”

As part of Escape to Margaritaville’s ongoing hurricane relief efforts, $5 from every ticket purchase made at the box office December 8 will be donated to One America Appeal, a non-profit organization founded by all five living former U.S. Presidents to aid hurricane victims in the U.S. and in the Caribbean. To date, the show has raised more than $110,000 for hurricane relief.

Following its pre-Broadway tour, the new musical will begin previews February 16, 2018, prior to an official opening March 15 at the Marquis.

Jimmy Buffett planning a free concert in the Caribbean

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | No Comments »

From the Caribbean Journal: One of St Barth’s favorite sons is planning a major concert in Gustavia this month.

Jimmy Buffett, the music superstar and frequent St Barth visitor, is planning to play a free concert in Gustavia on Dec. 27.

The concert will be held on the quai in St Barth’s tiny capital; Buffett will be accompanied by local musician Soley and other musicians from the island.

“He hopes that by performing there he will persuade a few more people to come down for the holidays,” said Stiles Bennet, president and CMO of Wimco Villas. “It’s a fun way for folks to support the island’s recovery.”

Buffett has had a decades-long relationship with the island, and some of his most legendary songs were inspired by St Barth, including One Particular Harbor, Au Tour de Rocher and Cheeseburger in Paradise.

As Caribbean Journal reported, St Barth has been making a rapid recovery in the wake of Hurricane Irma; Buffett’s concert should only provide an even bigger boost.

Buffett to Headline ForEverglades Palm Beach Benefit

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off on Buffett to Headline ForEverglades Palm Beach Benefit

From EvergladesFoundation.org: “Buffett at The Beach! Jimmy Buffett to Headline the 2018 ForEverglades Annual Palm Beach Benefit

The Everglades Foundation is proud to announce that Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will headline its ForEverglades Annual Benefit on Saturday, February 17, 2018, at The Breakers in Palm Beach.

This year’s event will celebrate the Foundation’s 25th Anniversary. It is especially appropriate that Buffett will headline this year’s celebration, having been one of the Foundation’s supporters from the beginning with founders Paul Jones and the late George Barley.

Singer/songwriter/author Jimmy Buffett has become a legend of popular culture as the composer of such classic songs as “Margaritaville,” “Come Monday” and “Cheeseburger In Paradise.” He has recorded over fifty albums, most of which have gone gold, platinum or multi-platinum. His sold-out concert tours are an annual rite of summer for his legions of fans, affectionately known as Parrotheads, many of whom are professionals by day and who dress in spectacular and outrageous tropical outfits and headwear when Jimmy comes to town.

“Jimmy Buffett is a longtime friend and tireless advocate for America’s Everglades. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the stage to help raise awareness for Everglades restoration,” said Eric Eikenberg, Everglades Foundation Chief Executive Officer.

Proceeds from the evening will support the science, education and advocacy of Everglades restoration.

To purchase tables and tickets online please visit www.forevergladespalmbeach.org or call Debbie Fife or Katie Lesser, 212-245-6570, email: everglades@eventassociatesinc.com.

Buffett appears on “A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg”

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off on Buffett appears on “A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg”

A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg” is now available at Amazon.com. Jimmy Buffett sings the song “There’s A Place In The World For A Gambler”.

The project, which released Nov. 21 after nearly eight years in the making, includes a star-studded lineup featuring Garth Brooks, Zac Brown, Jimmy Buffett, Joe Walsh and the Eagles, Michael McDonald, Train, Amy Grant and Vince Gill, Boz Scaggs, Casey James, Dobie Gray, Donna Summer, Fool’s Gold’s Denny Henson and Tom Kelly, Randy Owen, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Richie Furay.

Sales from the album will benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation, a cause near and dear to Dan’s wife, Jean Fogelberg. In 2008, a year after Fogelberg passed away from prostate cancer, Jean released “Sometimes A Song,” a Valentine’s Day gift to her from Dan, and donated the proceeds to PCF. Each year since then she has designed the annual PCF Holiday Cards to help raise money and awareness for the cause.

“I will be forever grateful to these amazing artists for giving their time and talents to honor Dan and to help fund the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s research programs to find a cure for prostate cancer,” said Jean Fogelberg about the new album.
