Mac McAnally will be the headliner at Pope-A-Palooza Music Festival on Saturday, April 27 at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton. The celebration will run from 4 PM ‘til 11 PM and will include performances by several South Florida bands.

A record-setting 10-time CMA Musician of the Year, McAnally is a renowned singer, songwriter and instrumentalist who has written dozens of hit records for other artists, several of which peaked at #1. His own recording career began with his debut hit single “It’s A Crazy World” and has grown to 14 album releases. He has written hits for Alabama, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney and Sawyer Brown, and has studio credits that include albums by Dolly Parton, Toby Keith, Linda Ronstadt and George Strait.
Parrotheads know McAnally as the guitarist/backup singer in Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band starting in the 1990s and as contributing songwriter on Buffett tunes like “It’s My Job” and “Coast of Carolina.” Since 1997 McAnally produced Buffett’s albums with his fellow Coral Reefer Band mate Michael Utley including Buffett’s final studio album “Equal Strain” earlier this year.
McAnally will surely keep the party going at Pope-A-Palooza.
“As alumni of Saint John Paul II Academy, my co-chair Cathy Silk and I are committed to providing opportunities for the next generation to attend Saint John Paul II Academy,” said Mike Fimiani. “We now have 66 legacy students enrolled for the 2023-2024 academic year, and the funds raised through Pope-a-Palooza will allow other children of alumni to reap the benefits of a world-class education.”
