From the Palm Beach Post: “Evening with Jimmy Buffett, Navy SEALs raises more than $1M”
The biennial Navy SEAL Evening of Tribute started with a literal bang at its dinner dance, which took place March 30 at The Mar-a-Lago Club.
Rebecca Williams was chairwoman for the evening, which, after the SEAL drop, moved to the ballroom where Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally performed a moving God Bless America before they, too, slipped off unseen into the night.
More than 650 people attended the event, which raised more than $1 million for the Navy SEAL Foundation and for the Navy SEAL Museum, Trident House and Memorial.

From the Indianapolis Star: “Buffett skipping Indy on his 2015 tour”
For the first time in 25 years, the summer concert season in Noblesville will be free of fins, volcanoes and cheeseburgers.
Jimmy Buffett, whose perennial summer tours have been a tradition in Noblesville for decades, is skipping Indianapolis on his 2015 “Workin’ and Playin'” tour, sources in Buffett’s camp confirm. Buffett has played Indy at least once every summer since 1990 (and, we should note for political purposes, generally announces his tour dates in January or February).
Dustin Duncan, membership director of the PHIndy Parrothead Club, says his group traditionally schedules a charity event prior to Buffett’s local stop. “We haven’t made any solid plans this year, since we’ve been in limbo hoping Jimmy would announce a show,” he said. Duncan said his group would head to Cincinnati this summer instead.
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band played on Thursday night at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. The show was a continuation of last years “This One’s For You Tour”. The set list from the show is now available. Some changes included “Migration”, “Cuban Crime of Passion”, “Growing Older But Not Up”, “Floridays”, and “Oldest Surfer On The Beach”.
