From TCPalm.com: “Jimmy Buffett performing Sunday at Murphy fundraising event”
Jimmy Buffett, who is known for his political activism as well as his music, is performing Sunday at a fundraising event for Democratic Congressional candidate Patrick Murphy.
The intimate concert will be at a private home in Palm City. Only 200 tickets at $100 each will be sold along with VIP tickets for $2,500, which include a preconcert reception and photo with Jimmy Buffett. Tickets sales support The Friends of Patrick Murphy.
This is not the first time Buffett has campaigned for the Democratic Party in the last two months.
At an event for Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson last month in Orlando, Buffett sang acoustical versions of “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Margaritaville” in a hangar at the Orlando-Sanford International Airport.
Buffet, a long time conservationist, supports Murphy’s view on the environmental issues.
“Mr. Buffett offered to do the concert,” said Erin Moffett, a spokeswoman for Murphy’s campaign.
