Reported by Charlotte/Vince: Jimmy stopped by LuLu’s to have a little lunch today. There were quite a few people there. He signed a couple of autographs and smiled for the camera. You just have to be in the right place at the right time.
From Bob Firpy: Former Coral Reefer, Claudia Cummings has written and produced a song, called ‘Dizzy’, that has been chosen for the title track for the new Jim Carrey movie, “The Majestic”. The film is written, produced and directed by Frank Darabont who also did ” The Shawshank Redemption” and “The Green Mile”. 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.

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.
From Linda Morris: I was watching the Emeril Live show last Sunday, the one where they were celebrating his 1000th show and they had various celebrities congratulating Emeril. They showed Jimmy on video congratulating Emeril and commented about the fact that Emeril’s is famous with a real name like Emeril Lagasse. Jimmy said he wanted to get onto Emeril’s show one of these days.
