Singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett has announced a free concert next week to show his support for the Gulf Coast and to boost the mood of residents.

Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band will perform a free show on the beach at Gulf Shores on the Alabama coast on July 1, he announced on his website on the weekend.

Other performers slated to join the Margaritaville singer onstage so far include Allen Toussaint, the Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Sonny Landreth and Jesse Winchester.

According to the statement on Buffett's site, the concert is meant to "demonstrate support for the people, businesses and culture of the Gulf Coast."

The free show will also be broadcast live on CMT.

Alabama tourism officials have also pledged support for the concert, which is being held the same day Buffett's Margaritaville Beach Hotel is scheduled to open on Pensacola Beach, Fla.

Other fundraising events have been held to support relief efforts for victims of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, including the late-May benefit concert Gulf Aid, which saw Lenny Kravitz, Mos Def, Toussaint and Dr. John take the stage in New Orleans.
