Cedric Burnside Brings His Unique North Mississippi Sound to Alabama's Gulf Coast on Super Bowl Weekend

Cedric Burnside, the grandson of the legendary blues man R.L. Burnside, will once again grace our island with his own brand of the blues. At the tender age of 13 Cedric started touring around the world with his grandfather playing drums in his North Mississippi All Stars band.

During this trip Cedric will be joined by his younger brother Cody Burnside and Trento Ayers. They have collaborated to form The Cedric Burnside Project introducing a new genre of music by infusing Mississippi Hill Country Blues, Funk, R&B and Soul. Can't you just imagine how good that mix of music will make you feel?

The Cedric Burnside Project will start off Super Bowl weekend on Friday (Feb. 3) at The Hangout in Gulf Shores with a free show beginning at 7 p.m. Seating is limited and is on a first come basis (no reservations taken for the show). My best advice is arrive at 5 p.m., order a delicious meal, sit back with a cocktail and maybe some dessert and wait for your spine to tingle with the down home delta blues.

Moving to another venue the next night this group of talented musicians will play at Happy Harbour in Orange Beach on Saturday (Feb. 4). And finally on Super Bowl Sunday from 1-5 p.m. you can catch up with Cedric Burnside at Joey's North Shore Grill and Hula Hula Tiki Bar. Don't worry the awesome blues music will end in time for you to still watch the biggest game of the year at Joey's. Or perhaps you'll venture to The Hangout to watch on their 20+ screens where there will be games for cash prizes during the Super Bowl.

The coast is THE place to spend Super Bowl weekend. Check out the Meyer Vacation Rental specials during February that include a month-long Mardi Gras special with 2 free nights (Buy 2 nights get 2 FREE in condos or buy 5 nights get 2 FREE in houses).

See you on the coast.
