Rhythm & Blues Artist Lisa Marshall to Perform Near Gulf Shores Island

It is so much fun to live on the Alabama Gulf Coast and experience some of the great musical talent that has now discovered our shores. Since I love rhythm & blues I'm thrilled to learn that Lisa Marshall will perform here on Saturday (August 22, 2009). The venue is Mosaic Tapas Restaurant which is new to The Wharf in Orange Beach. I discovered tapas in Chicago and loved the concept of "small plates" that everyone in the dinner party shares and although I have not yet tried Mosaic Tapas I'm looking forward to the adventure.

According to Lisa Marshall's website she was "influenced by Motown, Soul and Rock n' Roll and inspired by Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Mavis Staples and Janis Joplin. Her song writing is primarily influenced by R&B, rock and gospel such as Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin to Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and The Beatles." Sounds like an amazing combination. She hails from Virginia Beach, VA, lived and performed in Seattle and now lives in Austin, TX. Her performance on Saturday night will be part of her Mississippi River Tour.

Now that the school bells have rung the crowds are gone, so it's a really great time to visit the coast. Take a break before Labor Day and save during Meyer Real Estate's Awesome August Special with discounts from 25-35% this month.
