From Mike: Buffett makes a surprise appearance at SunFest. See photos, a video clip, and read the story “Funk, Buffett take stage opening night” in the Palm Beach Post about Jimmy Buffett’s unannounced SunFest jam with Evan and Jaron on Wednesday.
From SemiTrueStories: Jimmy showed up at Sunfest tonight & played one song “Southern Cross” for the crowd. My friend Kathy called me on her cell & let me listen via wireless to it. Jimmy is a Co-Chair for Sunfest & played only once before the 1st year I think. It is like in its 12th yr. now. Jimmy played after the set of Evan & Jaron. Jimmy discovered these 2 in ’96 & helped promote or sign them up on his record label. t For us here in WPB it was nice to see that Jimmy finally showed up at Sunfest after all these years even if it was for only one song. It was a rumor that was circulating on the radio waves today.
From David: My only comment is to the sunfest posting. Jimmy did make an appearance at sunfest about 4 or 5 years ago when he sat in with the band Little Feat. just wanted to clarify that it has been more than one time that he showed up there. I think they played changes in lattitudes and maybe one other Buffett song.
