Buffett Shoots Music Video for New Song

July 29th, 2006

Jimmy Buffett spent Friday shooting a music video for the song “Bama Breeze” that is expected to be the first release from his new album “Party At The End Of The World”, slated for release in October.

The Sun Herald has an article on the video shoot: Dog Has Its Day: Fire Dog stands in for Flora-Bama as Buffett plays

Residents and officials were initially taken aback by the fact that the video and song, “Bama Breeze” (expected to be the first release from Buffett’s new album, due out in October), dealt with the aftermath of Hurricane Ivan in 2004, with the wrecked Fire Dog standing in for the Flora-Bama bar, a famous establishment located smack-dab on the Alabama-Florida state line. But ultimately the consensus seemed to be that, no matter the reason, Jimmy Buffett in Bay St. Louis is still Jimmy Buffett is Bay St. Louis.

Around 12:30 p.m., after a lunch break, Buffett left his air-conditioned motor home at the end of Main Street and began making his way down the block to the Fire Dog to resume shooting.

Along the way, he paused briefly to greet fans and exchange a few words.

On hand, dressed in a tie-dyed shirt and straw hat – and with his wife, his three children, a dozen college church interns/volunteers and a cold 12-pack of Corona (complete with limes) in tow – was the Rev. Jean Larroux, of Lagniappe Presbyterian Church.
