Live Music at Meyer Park

By City of Gulf Shores

January 17, 2019 –  Gulf Shores, Ala – (OBA®) – The City of Gulf Shores is excited to announce the 2019 lineup for the Music at Meyer Park concert series. These free springtime concerts have become a fan favorite for locals and visitors alike.

On March 28, the Red Clay Strays kick off the Music at Meyer Park series. From rural south Alabama, the Red Clay Strays claim their unique sound with a humble confidence that can only come from their upbringing. This band reminds you of southern music’s heyday and gives you hope that it may not have lost its way after all. Their wide range of influences create a combined style of the country music and southern rock we’ve all been waiting for. Lead Singer, Brandon Coleman, with vocals that bring to mind young Elvis, is the heart of their show along with Drew Nix on rhythm guitar, Zach Rishel on lead, Andrew Bishop on bass and John Hall on drums.

Grayson Capps steps in as the second performer for the Music at Meyer Park series on April 4. Hailed by NPR for his “unbridled energy and authenticity,” Capps first emerged as a solo artist in 2005. His debut record, ‘If You Knew My Mind,’ earned rave reviews. American Songwriter declared, “Take the poetry of Texas troubadour Townes Van Zandt, combine with Steve Earle’s edgy attitude and stir with a little cup of the bayou-blues (think Howlin’ Wolf) and you start to get a taste of Capps’s scrumptious gothic gumbo.” He has since gone onto release five similarly exalted albums that have earned him devoted followings in both the US and Europe.

Amanda Shaw will take over the stage on April 11. Mix a little bit of country and Cajun, with a touch of Rock-n-Roll and Blues, and you have a funky Louisiana flavor that fiddler and singer Amanda Shaw brings every time her high heels dance across a stage. Amanda’s passion for her culture is evident in the diverse blend of music she creates with every note she plays. Amanda’s award-winning music and high-energy performances with her band, The Cute Guys, produce a unique balance of mainstream harmonies with grassroots charm. She continues to master her technique by putting a personal Louisiana twist on performances at festivals and events around the world – locally, regionally and internationally.
