Derek Johnson plays July 22, Cool Rayz July 29 in Pelican Place Courtyard
Pelican Place is going Country on July 22 when Derek Johnson performs during the Sounds of Summer Friday Evening Concert Series at Pelican Place Shopping Center in Gulf Shores. Cool Rayz is the feature band on July 29. The bands will begin playing in the Pelican Place courtyard at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free, and food and drink vendors will be open for business throughout the popular shopping center. Cool Rayz (pictured) has the same four guys (J R Owen, Mitch Rencher, Norm Hastings and Raul Sanchez) that started the band in the spring of 2003. Vocalist Eden joined in 2008. Consistent performance and reliability combined with talent and amazing variety make the band the right choice for any party.
“Y’all come out and hear some throwback, aka, real country music, as well as songs from my album and some new ones I’ve written,’’ wrote Johnson on facebook.
