Buffett Shoots Music Video for New Song

Jimmy Buffett spent Friday shooting a music video for the song “Bama Breeze” that is expected to be the first release from his new album “Party At The End Of The World”, slated for release in October.

The Sun Herald has an article on the video shoot: Dog Has Its Day: Fire Dog stands in for Flora-Bama as Buffett plays

Residents and officials were initially taken aback by the fact that the video and song, “Bama Breeze” (expected to be the first release from Buffett’s new album, due out in October), dealt with the aftermath of Hurricane Ivan in 2004, with the wrecked Fire Dog standing in for the Flora-Bama bar, a famous establishment located smack-dab on the Alabama-Florida state line. But ultimately the consensus seemed to be that, no matter the reason, Jimmy Buffett in Bay St. Louis is still Jimmy Buffett is Bay St. Louis.

Around 12:30 p.m., after a lunch break, Buffett left his air-conditioned motor home at the end of Main Street and began making his way down the block to the Fire Dog to resume shooting.

Along the way, he paused briefly to greet fans and exchange a few words.

On hand, dressed in a tie-dyed shirt and straw hat – and with his wife, his three children, a dozen college church interns/volunteers and a cold 12-pack of Corona (complete with limes) in tow – was the Rev. Jean Larroux, of Lagniappe Presbyterian Church.

The Official MLB website for the Chicago Cubs has an article on the Live at Wrigley DVD entitled “Parrotheads Rejoice.”

“You always find time for baseball,” Buffett said recently in an exclusive interview with MLB.com. “I think probably a day at the park with my dad was one of the great influences on me in trying to get a job where I could get a balance of work and play time. And it was lucky enough that it worked out that way.”

Luckily for Parrotheads, Jimmy Buffett — Live At Wrigley Field has it all covered. The two nights of concerts at the 92-year-old ivy-covered ballpark marked the first concerts in the yard’s well-documented history.

And to borrow a phrase from the most famous Cub in history, “Mr. Cub” Ernie Banks, “Let’s play two.”

The double-disc set is approximately 2 hours, 45 minutes long and contains 26 songs, plus bonus footage and some surprises.

Club St. Somewhere: The Other Side of Obsession

The following is a press release from Jackson Quigley:

The Underground World of the Internet Parrot Head is about 12 years old now. It’s undergone many transitions. People have come and gone; Websites have come and gone, but Jimmy’s music is still the motivating factor.

Back in ’94 and ’95, when this whole thing started, people were amazed to find others that were umbilically connected to the temperate zone like they were. Jimmy Buffett was on his way to becoming a household name because of the Internet. The last 12 years has seen Buffett go from a virtual unknown to today where he finally has a #1 hit.

Jackson “Bubbafreak” Quigley was a big part of that early Parrot Head Movement. He got so swept up in it that he wrote the first book totally dedicated to the Internet Parrot Head Phenomenon. He also became the first Parrot Head to do what many others had only dreamt of: He took the Ultimate Parrot Head Road Trip and attended to each and every show of a Buffett Concert Season—Beach House On The Moon. Then he just dropped off the radar.

Ever wonder what happened to him? Or do you simply want to know what it was like back in the old days? Come join Jackson on his new Website Club St. Somewhere: The Other Side of Obsession @ http://web.mac.com/oneparticularph
