Buffett Tackles 2005 Storms In Bama Breeze

JIMMY BUFFETT is paying tribute to the victims of Hurricane Katrina in his new video, shot in a bar destroyed by the 2005 storm. The MARGARITAVILLE singer recorded BAMA BREEZE after witnessing the devastation of tropical storms Katrina and Ivan in and around the Gulf Coast, where he grew up. He shot the new video, which accompanies the song at the Fire Dog Saloon in Mississippi - a bar that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The track features on Buffett's new album TAKE THE WEATHER WITH YOU, which includes guest spots from former DIRE STRAITS star MARK KNOPFLER, British rockers GOMEZ and ukulele legend JAKE SHIMABAKURO.
