Jimmy Plays Surprise Show at Lulu’s

June 30th, 2010

Determined to not be stopped by the storm, Freddy and the Fishsticks (aka Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band) played a surprise show at Lulu’s Sunset Grill in Gulf Shores, AL tonight.

Notable songs played include “Surfing in a Hurricane,” “Bama Breeze”, and “Dreamsicle” for the first time since the 2001 show at Lulu’s. “When the Coast is Clear,” last played in 2003, was tonight’s final encore, featuring Mac on Keyboards and Pete on Guitar.

Both the AP and the Press-Register have articles up with photo galleries from the show:

Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft said many in the crowd were local residents whose lives have been turned upside down by the loss of business from the oil spill.

“This is great. We have needed a boost so badly, and this really helps,” Craft said.
