From Patrick Phillips: I did want to drop a line to mention that JIMMY was on the FOX 29-NEWS, Philadelphia, Pa. on Saturday may 5th. It was a interview about Don’t Stop The Carnival play at the Atlantis in the Bahamas. He spoke for about 3 to 4 minutes reguarding how much He enjoys doing the play there because He can fly His seaplane to work!.
From Andy Hunt: I just found out that the Phish song that Jimmy Buffett will play for The Phish Tribute album will be “Gumbo” (it’s not Jimmy’s song “I will play for Gumbo”). I’ve heard Phish play this live and its a great song. They sometimes play it w/ horns if someone is there to play. You can hear Phish’s “Gumbo” at Amazon.com on the album “A Live One”

Claudia also produced 7 other songs that are to be included in the movie as well. The film is due for release in December, 2001.
From John: As I’m sure you’ve heard, Jimmy played Margaritaville in New Orleans with Mac McAnally last night. The show was great, Jimmy’s mom was there, he was really having fun being Mac’s band. He came out on like the third song, but just played and sang back up for a while. The set list contained mainly Mac songs and songs Jimmy and mac wrote together. The set list was something like this: (i’m not sure at all on the order, and i may have left one or two out. this is what i remember).
Jimmy will probably stop by again at tonight’s show.
