The City of Gulf Shores is excited to announce the 2021 lineup for Sunset Series. These concerts are free to the public, and will take place each Thursday in September on the Town Green at Gulf Place – 101 Gulf Shores Pkwy. from 6-8 p.m. Residents and visitors are invited to bring their friends and lawn chairs and join us for concerts at sunset. 

2021 Sunset Series dates and lineup:

September 2 – Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet 

Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet is an Indie Southern rock band based out of Mobile, AL. Formed in 2015, the band began writing music of their own. After several performances along the Gulf Coast, the appetite for Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet’s original material grew. Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet has played festival stages alongside artists such as Counting Crows, Wet Willie, and The Marcus King Band. 

September 9 – Ever More Nest

Ever More Nest is a new music project from New Orleans-based songwriter Kelcy Mae. Kelcy has adopted a full-fledged Americana style that has drawn comparisons to Gregory Alan Isakov, Gillian Welch, and Nanci Griffith. Kelcy’s oft-lauded poeticism remains a calling card of her songs.  

September 16 – Early James

Early James is a combination of roots, rock, the lonesomeness of the blues and tongue, and the cheek of classic country. James’ voice conjures a century’s worth of American barkers and crooners, from Alan Lomax field recordings to mid-century iconoclasts like Billy Holliday and Howlin Wolf to ghostly late-century interpreters like Fiona Apple and Tom Waits.

September 23 – The Talismen

The Talismen formed in 2015 in Montgomery, AL. These talented musicians have been learning and growing as they entertain audiences all over the Southeast. The Talismen put on a show containing soulful and funk-filled originals along with some music of their favorite artists from across the jam, rock, and funk spectrum.

September 30 – Songwriters Showcase

The Songwriters Showcase will be a preview to the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival. The night will kick off with the Krickets and will be followed by three Nashville hit songwriters: Jon Nite, J.T. Harding, and Lindsay Rimes. 

“We are excited to continue our Sunset Series,” Brigette Reynolds, City of Gulf Shores Programs & Events Manager, said. “Our City has put so much effort into making Gulf Place Public Beach a beautiful and relaxing spot for our residents and visitors. We are excited to mix that beauty with free entertainment for everyone to come out and enjoy.”

The Sunset Series concerts are free to the public. Food trucks will be set up for those wishing to purchase food, and the Alabama Coastal Business Chamber will be present selling soft drinks and beer.
