The City of Gulf Shores has announced the lineup for their Music at Meyer Park concert series. The springtime event, now in its third year, has become a fan favorite for locals and visitors alike. Whether you like rock, country, blues or zydeco, the 2013 lineup has what you’re looking for.
On April 11, Jon Cowart and Cornbred take the stage to kick off Music at Meyer Park. This four piece juggernaut has become known for their high-energy performances featuring a unique brand of heart-racing, toe-tapping Rock and Roll. Fans gravitate to the group’s pure Rock and Roll sound and amazing vocals laced with blues, southern rock, pop and even a little country.
Grayson Capps heads back to his roots of South Alabama and joins the Meyer Park stage on April 25. After spending a decade in New Orleans, this revered singer-songwriter has attracted fans from around the world with his stinging tales of Southern Gothic. Capps’ artfully blends his rough, raw and honest lyrics with a contagious sound of blues and southern rock.
Chubby Carrier and The Bayou Swamp Band take over Meyer Park on May 9. Once this accordion-playing virtuoso grabs the mic and takes to the stage, audiences are treated to a show like no other. Chubby’s sound is infectious – a concoction of blues, 70s funk, rock and roll, and good-ole zydeco flavor – and makes even the most timid individuals get their feet moving. Their latest release “Zydeco Junkie,” has taken the group to new heights after winning the Grammy Award for Best Zydeco/Cajun Album in February 2011. If you haven’t experienced the high energy, swamp funky, zydeco sound of Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, it is time you join the legions of fans that have.
The Brandon Green Band closes out the 2013 edition of Music at Meyer Park on June 6. Green has seen a whirlwind of success with a list of TV appearances under his belt, including a stint on Season 7 of American Idol, runner-up on CMT’s hit show, “Can You Duet?” and the winner of “Your Next Record with Keith Urban”. Born in a small Mississippi town called Lucedale, his diverse influences help this ambitious performer and songwriter craft high-energy songs that are in-tune with today's popular country styles, while his humility helps him remain true to his roots.
All Music at Meyer Park concerts are free to the public and begin at 6:00 p.m.
