The lineup for the 2024 Winter Concert Series consists of the following acts:
January 29 and 30
The great sound of soul makes its round-trip journey home to its Southern roots with Get Ready! From Michael Jackson to Marvin Gaye and Tina Turner, Get Ready will move your audience both physically and emotionally, bringing to life the many great artists and unforgettable songs of the golden era of Motown music. This dynamic group does it all: harmonies reminiscent of classic vocal ensembles like the Four Tops or the Supremes, intricate dance moves worthy of the Temptations or the Jackson Five, and costuming that rivals the stylish matching outfits that defined the great Motown acts of the ’60s. Perfect-quality musical tracks make your trip down memory lane even more authentic. The show never fails to get audiences “Dancing In the Street” (or at least on the dance floor)!
Tickets for Get Ready! are $35 and go on sale October 31. Shows begin at 7 p.m., and doors open at 6 p.m. Coffee and water will be offered at intermission. For more information, visit https://www.gulfshoresal.gov/winterconcertseries.
The Four Freshmen
February 5 and 6
The Four Freshmen are one of America's most enduring vocal groups, bringing a jazz sensibility to the classic American songbook in their own special way. With a sound centered around a tight 4-part vocal blend, like barbershop but jazzier, The Four Freshmen deliver a fresh take on every tune they call, from dreamy, crooner-style ballads to swingin', up-tempo arrangements that make a quartet feel like a big band. The Freshmen sound, both classic and sophisticated yet young and hip, is equally adept at winding back the clock for older audience members as it is at entrancing younger audiences with its authentic but energetic blast-from-the-past style. A Four Freshmen counter is one you will never forget.
Tickets for the Four Freshmen are $35 and go on sale October 31. Shows begin at 7 p.m., and doors open at 6 p.m. Coffee and water will be offered at intermission. For more information, visit https://www.gulfshoresal.gov/winterconcertseries.
February 15 and 16
Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose will-spring of natural talent has been called "one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years" by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song "All for You," topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. Since then, the band has become firmly established not only in rock and alternative music, but now in country with four back-to-back Billboard Top Country Album Chart entries. Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band was a pioneer in the themed cruise industry by confounding "The Rock Boat" and annually hosts events like the "Hazelnut Hang," and "Camp Hazelnut" that focuses on creating unique experiences and interacting with the fans.
Tickets for Sister Hazel are $27.50 and go on sale November 14. Shows begin at 7 p.m., and doors open at 5:30 p.m. A beverage tent will be onsite before and during the show. For more information, visit https://www.gulfshoresal.gov/winterconcertseries.
Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking, and thoroughly Southern American, yet also speaking universal truths. Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity, and character the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time. He has also appeared on major television shows, received numerous National Public Radio features, and charted multiple times on the Billboard Top 100 and Americana Radio Charts.
Tickets are $35 and go on sale November 14. Shows begin at 7 p.m., and doors open at 5:30 p.m. A beverage tent will be onsite before and during the show. For more information, visit https://www.gulfshoresal.gov/winterconcertseries.
