The city of Pascagoula will rename a bridge after native son Jimmy Buffett on September 19th.

Buffett is expected to be in attendance on Saturday, Sept. 19 for the dedication of Jimmy Buffett Bridge, which spans the Baptiste Bayou.

The day will transform into one of celebration and song, as Buffett is expected to bring his guitar with him and perform a brief acoustic set to commemorate the occasion while accompanied by Coral Reefer guitarist and seven time Country Music Association Musician of the Year Mac McAnally on the beach at the corner of 11th Street and Beach Boulevard.

City officials will present Buffett with a key to the City, and the City and State Legislature will proclaim May 6th Jimmy Buffett Day at the local and state levels in honor of his parents’ wedding anniversary. Jimmy Buffett signage will also be placed at Pascagoula’s three entrances advertising it as his birthplace.

The singer-songwriter, author, actor, and entrepreneur was born Christmas Day, 1946 in the old Jackson County Hospital in Pascagoula. He moved to Mobile with his parents when he was a child.

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.”
