“From the far reaches of rural south Alabama, The Red Clay Strays claim their unique sound with a humble confidence that can only come from their upbringing. This band, on stage and off, reminds you of southern music’s heyday and gives you hope that it may not have lost its way after all. Growing up listening to gospel along with artists such as Waylon Jennings, The Eagles, and the Allman Brothers, 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 high energy show along with Drew Nix on rhythm guitar, Zach Rishel on lead, Andrew Bishop on bass and John Hall on drums. “

The Chee-Weez are a 5 piece tribute/show band that specialize in making sure YOU have a great time and leave with a smile. With an ever-expanding stage show including video walls, lights, lasers, and pyro, to the off-the-cuff antics, you never know WHAT you’ll see next at the Chee-Weez show! But be warned…you WILL be entertained!

Formed in 1997 in a garage just outside New Orleans, LA., The Chee-Weez began life as a disco tribute act. (Afros and platform shoes included). But on a random night in a smokey bar room sometime in 1998, the boys decided to throw a dash of Bon Jovi and pinch of Journey into the mix to see how the audience responded, and the rest, as they say…is history!


Saturday, August 29 - 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

In the chilly arctic winter of 2005, The Defrosters was started by drummer Andy Toth to heat things up in the Alaska music scene. With seasoned performers Mike Johnson on guitar and Bob Renke on bass, The Defrosters took off in the great white north with their unique “southern soul” inspired sound. Over the years The Defrosters have performed at festivals, public events and private parties throughout Alaska, living up to their mantra “Music guaranteed to heat things up”.  After completing recording sessions in Nashville, The Defrosters relocated to warmer waters and finally settled in Gulf Shores, Alabama in late 2016. Their unique mix of Reggae, Rock, Bluegrass, Funky Soul, Americana, Country and Original songs help set this band apart from others with an entertaining show that makes you want to move!
