Jimmy Buffett and his wife Jane hosted a special sneak screening of the new Bill Murray film “Rock the Kasbah” in the Hamptons over the weekend. Many celebrities were in attendance, including Bill Clinton, Paul McCartney, and Bruce Springsteen.

Open Road Films’s new comedy “Rock the Kasbah,” starring Bill Murray, Kate Hudson and Bruce Willis, debuted at the United Artist Theater in East Hampton, N.Y. on Friday night for a special sneak preview. The screening — presented by the Peggy Siegel Company and hosted by famed singer Jimmy Buffett and his wife Jane — was a crowd pleaser. Guests raved about Murray’s funny yet heartfelt performance as a washed up rock manager.

But it was the post-screening after party at the Blue Parrot Bar & Grill that drew the most buzz. A star-studded guest list that included Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, John Mellencamp, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and President Bill Clinton joined the film’s cast to celebrate the pic and enjoy a casual nightcap. All eyes were on Clinton. The 42nd president of the United States received the most attention and selfie requests from the partygoers. Even the musicians and actors seemed to be starstruck.

“It’s very exciting that the President is here,” Murray told Variety at the party. “It’s an honor to meet him and get to talk to him.”
