|LuLu's presents the Crazy Sista Beach Party Music Festival Nov. 1-3 in Gulf Shores|
October 26, 2013, Gulf Shores, AL (GSA)- LuLu's Crazy Sista Beach Party will bring together an all-star music lineup and an important message that carries far beyond the music. The event is Nov. 1-3.
The music begins on Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. when the legendary Charmaine Neville takes the stage. And the amazing performances continue with Eric Lindell, Adam Holt and Jillian Jensen, and headliner five-time Grammy nominee Marcia Ball.
Charmaine Neville has plenty of New Orleans musical heritage behind her, but she's also about putting her own stamp on her songs. Eric Lindell's style has been described as southern soul music, infused with R&B and a touch of New Orleans funk. Adam Holt has been entertaining local crowds for years and he is joined by Jillian Jensen, the singer/songwriter from Massachusetts who appeared on "The X Factor" last season.
And headliner Marcia Ball has dazzled crowds for years with her non-stop keyboard energy.
On Saturday the music begins at 2:30 p.m. with Sugarcane Jane and keeps right on going with Sirius Plan featuring Donna Hall, Shawna P and the EarthFunk Tribe, and headliners the Grammy-Award winning Tedeschi Trucks Band.
Sugarcane Jane, the team of Alabama's own Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee Crawford, is well-known to LuLu's patrons. Sirius Plan will bring a global flair combined with Mobile's own Donna Hall from Wet Willie.
Shawna P has reached a new level of fame following her appearance on "The Voice" this year. She'll be on stage with her EarthFunk Tribe.
And the fabulous Tedeschi Trucks Band will wrap up the evening with the amazing talents of Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and their superb bandmates.
Sunday takes on a reverent tone with the internationally known Joyful's Spirit of New Orleans Choir performing at 11 a.m. This high-energy choir is a conglomeration of New Orleans groups that formed following Hurricane Katrina.
Billed as a Weekend of Food, Fun, and Music for the Crazy Sistas and the men who love them, this party is to celebrate the enduring spirit of women.
Lucy’s story, which she frequently shares, is much like so many of today’s young women and teens who face the barriers to success, contentment, self-respect and happiness which can seem overwhelming. Lucy has frequently said that with a little more guidance during her formative years, she might have avoided some of the missteps that made it harder for her to achieve the success that she now enjoys.
This year’s Crazy Sista Beach Party is the foundation of what is to become the annual fundraiser for Lucy Buffett and her restaurant group to support organizations that focus on the empowerment of women. This will enable Lucy to expand her support in the development of women as entrepreneurs in today’s business world, to include the education of teens and young adults in self-worth and self-image; as well as organizations that support positivity and good health in women and our communities.
Tickets for the Crazy Sista Beach Party weekend are $50 general admission and $150 for a VIP experience. Single day passes are available for $35. Ticket and lodging information as well as additional details about the musicians can be found at www.crazysistabeachparty.com.
