Buffett to perform at rally in St Pete

From FloridaPolitics.com: Jimmy Buffett has a message to Floridians: Get out and vote

Buffett is scheduled to perform at a get-out-the-vote rally for Democrats Hillary Clinton, Patrick Murphy, and Charlie Crist on Monday. The event is meant to urge voters to get to the polls on Election Day.

Buffett is expected to be joined by Murphy and Crist. He’ll also perform a short set of songs with Country Music Musician of the Year Mac McAnally.

Murphy faces Sen. Marco Rubio in the U.S. Senate race, while Crist, the state’s former governor, is hoping to unseat Rep. David Jolly.

Mayor Rick Kriseman will welcome Buffett and the candidates. The event is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Albert Whitted Park in downtown St. Petersburg. The event is free and open to the public.

    1. Why on Earth would you care two hoots about the politics of a musician?

      How does that change your enjoyment of the music?

      Finally, how about an outsiders view?
      I have no dog in this fight, so, whoever you guys choose to be your President is your concern, however, the mere fact that a buffoonish, misogynistic bigot like Trump can even be in the running makes your country an international laughing stock.

      Just Sayin’

      1. You know, I really don’t care what someone outside the U.S. thinks. And I find it insulting that foreigners always think they need to lecture Americans on who elect, especially when they want us to elect someone who will weaken and jeapordize the security of the West and certainly make America weaker. Your motives are very telling.

        Jimmy has always been on the other side of the political spectrum as I am. That’s cool. I’m just glad we live in a place where we can disagree and still enjoy the same things.

  1. How could anyone not know by now that Jimmy is a progressive liberal?! Has always been a supporter of reason, common sense, and rationality.

  2. Jimmy. Why promote a criminal? One who has made hundreds of millions by being a career politician? I lost all respect for you and have quit the local parrot head club. Hillary will go down as the most corrupt politician of all time.

    1. I’m shocked you didn’t already know he was a Democrat and Clinton supporter? Where have you been? The same article about Jimmy doing a concert for the Democratic candidate for President is posted on BN every 4 years.

  3. 3,000 Parrothead fans spending thousands of dollars in Key West this weekend and constantly supporting your charities. All we wanted was an appearance by you here for the 25th Ann and you can’t detour for a few hours?? Toby Keith is not you and we have no interest in country music.

  4. Hey Buffet,
    So you wanted to support a criminal instead of showing up to support 3,000 fans at Key West. How did that work out for you???????? A soon to be ex-member of a parrot head group.
