Procedural Blue Bloods is well into its 12th season and still finding ways to surprise. One of those surprises is courtesy of star Donnie Wahlberg, who not-so-subtly confirmed that former Hawaii Five-0 guest star and major musician Jimmy Buffett is officially coming to the series.
The New Kids on the Block founding member shared the news with his followers on Instagram recently and included a sweet photo of him and the musician. Although there is no telling what will bring Jimmy Buffett to Blue Bloods, he’s undoubtedly going to make a fun addition.
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed at a charity concert benefiting the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Wednesday November 17th on the back lawn of The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida.
Some of the songs that were performed include “Grapefruit Juicy Fruit” and “Growing Older But Not Up”
From Attractions Magazine: Margaritaville Beach House in Key West has undergone a multi-million-dollar renovation, and is now taking reservations ahead of its official debut on Nov. 15. Located along Key West’s largest beach, the resort was formerly the Barbary Beach House Key West, now rebranded and upgraded with Margaritaville’s family-friendly style and amenities.
Among the expanded features for the Key West hotel are the restaurant and bar concept, Tin Cup Chalice Bar & Chill, because it’s “always five o’clock somewhere.” The poolside outlet serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus drinks and desserts.
With its oceanfront views, the resort consists of 186 large suites, pet-friendly rooms, a 24-hour fitness center, daily refreshments, children’s activities and lawn games, and easy access to Smather’s Beach.
Guests will also appreciate the lagoon-style swimming pool with poolside entertainment, plus lounging hammocks dotted throughout the grounds.
General Manager Jeremy DaSilva said, “Key West is the perfect location for our new Margaritaville destination, providing guests with a relaxing oasis to escape, unwind, and enjoy the laid-back lifestyle. We’re excited to welcome travelers from around the world to experience the Margaritaville state of mind and the resort’s superlative service and stellar offerings.”
Jake Shimabukuro and Jimmy Buffett reprise their delightful rendition of “Come Monday”on the upcoming album “Jake & Friends“. It will be released on November 12th and is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
From Grateful Web: “Jake & Friends” the upcoming album from the acclaimed Hawai’i-born ‘ukulele player Jake Shimabukuro – features a who’s who of music royalty, so it’s only fitting that Shimabukuro release not one, but two new singles from the album today, with artists as diverse as Jack Johnson, Paula Fuga, and Kenny Loggins.
The opening track off “Jake & Friends“, “A Place In The Sun” was suggested to Shimabukuro by his chart-topping friend and fellow Hawai’i-born Jack Johnson. With Shimabukuro’s whimsical ukulele playing supporting them, Johnson and guest vocalist Paula Fuga absolutely sparkle. “Why Not,” written and sung by multi-platinum hitmaker and movie soundtrack king Kenny Loggins, is a deliciously upbeat slice of soul-pop with hooks for days and an effervescent ukulele solo that will set pulses racing. “Working with Kenny was a blast,” says Shimabukuro. “We started off doing things simply, but once we got going, Kenny wanted to try out different ideas, and I just let him go. Watching him do his thing was a real education in record making.”
In terms of size and scope and considering the sheer number of legendary stars who graciously loaned their inimitable talents to the project, ‘Jake & Friends’ can only be compared to other benchmark duets albums by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, a shining testament to just how far the singularly gifted Jake has come. Jake’s own head spins when looking over his high-wattage guest list featured on the album – Willie Nelson, Bette Midler, Jimmy Buffett, Moon Taxi, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Vince Gill and Amy Grant, Jon Anderson, Ziggy Marley, Warren Haynes, Jack Johnson, Jesse Colin Young, Ray Benson & Asleep at the Wheel, Sonny Landreth, Lukas Nelson, Billy Strings. “I have to pinch myself when I see those names on my own album,” he says. “It’s like, ‘Did that really happen?’ Making the album was a real challenge, but I’m deeply honored that all of the artists agreed to record with me.”
