|CONGRATULATIONS to Thomas Pimentel and TNT LTD. PRODUCTIONS and the Cast and crew of Indiana James and the Raiders
concert in Mansfield Massachusetts at the Tweeter Center to open up the second half of the show. The video was received with laughs,
whistles and applause. "You could feel the excitement in the crowd, especially when the beach ball came rolling down that huge ramp after
Indy." Director Thomas Pimentel also said that the surprises and excitement did not end there. "On Thursday night I was invited back stage
because Jimmy wanted to meet ME. They didn't tell me that I could meet Jimmy. They said he wanted to meet me. I got to hang out back
stage with Jimmy Buffett's video director, Stan Kellam, and see how the show is put together. I was introduced to Buffett and he told me that
he saw the movie and laughed his ass off. I was floored. Almost five years of hard work had definitely paid off. We talked about editing and
he wanted to know why I made the movie. I explained to him that I had an overactive imagination by which he replied, I can relate to that.
Buffett then told me that he wants to be in the movie and we would go on to discuss logistics of working him into the project with a cameo.
Could this dream get any better? We shook hands again and I thanked him for the tremendous opportunity and told him to have a good show.
Buffett then told me that he was honored to meet me and went right to the stage. Even though the video was not played Thursday night
because of the rain, they don't take an intermission if it rains too hard, it was played on Saturday night. One of my dreams was realized and I
was able to meet one of my idols. If anything my encounter with Jimmy Buffett has taught me one thing. Never, ever stop trying to achieve
your goals. Never settle for mediocre and never stop chasing your dreams. and luck we will get by.

The story revolves around Desmond, a frustrated artist who is
convinced by his eccentric roommate to rob the bank in which he
works. Discouraged with life as a struggling artist, Desmond justifies
the robbery as a means to his fulfill his ambition of being a painter. His
girlfriend Julie comes from a wealthy home, which juxtaposes his own
feelings of financial inadequacy and is exacerbated by Julie's father
who puts pressure on Desmond to “get serious” with his life. However,
with the success of his first gallery exhibition of his artwork, Desmond
decides against the robbery forcing his best friend and co-conspirator
to decide whether or not to go it alone. Determined to forge ahead with
the robbery, Gideon puts Desmond in the position of being the former
“inside man” who now has to decide whether or not to help his friend
get away with it. The dramatic elements are enhanced by the comedic
offerings from Gideon's character. Having planned the crime by
watching all the bank-robber films he could get his hands on, the
amateur heist is doomed from the beginning. Gideon is very much the
opposite of Desmond, eccentric, brash, and unpredictable. This “odd
couple” pairing lends to contentious conversations that are quite
humorous. With an assortment of odd characters and a sincere
romantic relationship between Desmond and Julie, the story fulfills a
diverse range of genres. Ultimately a Drama, the film has plenty of
Comedic, Action, and Romantic offerings which all serve to enhance
each other and move the story along.

As Steve Kareta looks back on 10 years with Changes in Latitudes, the popular Jimmy Buffet tribute, he appreciates more and
more the music and opportunity that has grown out of that experience. “It really started as a goof,” he said. “But we’ve toured
all over from Akron, Ohio, to Chicago, and Jacksonville, Fla. We played a Disney cruise in January. I have been able to grow old
with it without faking something I’m not.” The tribute has also inspired Kareta’s original music. “The flip side of all the Buffet
hysteria is this new sound,” he said. “My original stuff is country-cajun, which really fits in well with the ‘trop-rock’ craze.”
Buffet is credited with coining the term “trop-roc,” but in recent years the genre has expanded to include country and mainstream
artists like Kenny Chesney and Jack Johnson. “We’ve really don’t push it that much,” said Kareta, referring to his original
group Steve Kareta and Changes. “It is only starting to become a viable entity.”
The band’s CD “Summer State of Mind” includes appearances by Buffet’s Coral Reefer band mate Doyle Grisham (pedal steel).
Kareta is also working with the Deb Grisham Entertainment out of Nashville that books several Coral Reefer Band solo
“I’ve just started working this network,” Kareta said. “It feels like we are on the front edge of this bubble.”
Changes in Latitudes will play the Springfield Elks club on Tiffany Street in Springfield on June 18. The show starts at 6 p.m. The
tribute also performs at Stanley Park in Westfield on June 26.

music off of two of their original albums, Tequila Inspiration and By The Sea. The music of Steve Kareta and Changes fits
perfectly with the Caribbean themed action/adventure style of the Indiana James movie.
"Steve and his band have great songs and when I heard one of them I actually rewrote the last scene of the movie. They totally
capture the Jimmy Buffett feel but at the same time clearly make their sound original and fresh. Their music has brought my
movie to an entirely different level and we appreciate it. I have seen the band live and they kick ass. I have seen many Buffett
wannabees but Changes is in a category all their on. Thanks to Steve and the band. Can't wait for you to see the final product on
