Jimmy’s upcoming album, Buffet Hotel (one t), is scheduled for release in December.  The title cut has a strong West African influence and was conceived during a trip to the “Festival In The Desert,” a music festival that takes place annually near Timbuktu, Mali.  “It was one of the best musical experiences of my life,” said Jimmy.  It was there that Jimmy ran across the Buffet Hotel, an old colonial era train station/hotel which was the venue for the music scene that exploded in Mali after its independence in 1960.
After Jimmy started writing for Buffet Hotel, he decided to introduce three of the new songs into his 2009 set list. The three were “Summerzcool,” the quintessential beach song, which also became the tour name, “A Lot To Drink About,” a commentary on current events, and “Surfin’ In A Hurricane,” the first surf song Jimmy has ever written.
Mohegan Sun Arena is ranked the 4th best venue by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.” For more information on Jimmy Buffett and other great events at Mohegan Sun, visit mohegansun.com.  For information on this week’s schedule, call the Entertainment and Special Events hotline at 1.888.226.7711, ext. 27163.
