I was once called "The delta's rockin' country boy" by one of my roadie buddies at The
Osceola Arkansas Heritage Music Festival which I performed at for many years and it sort of stuck on me for a long time.

Opening for national recording artist such as Night Ranger, Anthony Gomes, Buddy Jewel, TG Sheppard, Tracy Lawrence and
Doctor Zarr's Amazing Funk Monster have been just a few of my high points throughout my 40 years of performing.
I moved to Gulf Shores in June 2014 and started my new musical journey here. GooRoo’s American/Seafood Restaurant in Gulf Shores, AL. gave me my first gig and it was a huge success!
Being a singer/songwriter as well as a solo entertainer has opened a few doors. I am very excited about being involved in the Gulf Coast songwriting community that will showcase my writing and performing talents for the new fans and friends I have made on the Gulf Coast. Me and my wife Dana plan on living out the rest of our years here in Alabama and we aren't going no where. We love this place, the folks, the music scene and all of the cool festivals and events it has to offer, not only in and around Gulf Shores, AL. but the Perdido Key and Pensacola areas as well.
Steadily gaining shows and fans is very exciting to me now that I am a solo entertainer. Retired from floorcovering installations in December of 2013 gave me the opportunity to become fulltime at my music.
I have spent the last 15 years playing in bands as the front man and guitarist for many groups around Memphis, TN. All over N.E. Arkansas and around Olive Branch and Southaven Mississippi. Back in the 70’s & 80’s I played in Texas, Oklahoma and parts of Missouri. Sure feels great to do my brand of music and show these days but I would not take away any of my past because it is a big part of who I am and it helped to mold me into the musician I am today.
Musical and vocal influences range from John Fogerty, Paul Rodgers, Vince Gill, Randy Owen, Ry Cooder, Keith Urban any many more.
A Epiphone EJ200 acoustic/electric guitar is my instrument of choice and the faithful Shure SM58 vocal microphone" for vocals. I carry a small Pa System setup for my personal shows that is just the right size for most venues, indoors or outdoors.
People ask me if I am related to the King of Rockin’ Roll “Elvis”. Well, I am but it’s very far down the line related, 7th cousin in our family tree. But I am very proud to carry the name and I love knowing I am the only musician out of 7 kids in my family. Must have had that part handed down to me somehow…LOL.
At the tender age of sixteen i started my musical journey into the nightlife’s music scene and that’s how this all began. There is definitely much more to tell but I’d rather you check out my music, photos and show schedule.
My Cd/Album can be purchased at the links below. Also there are links to my Facebook Artist Page and Reverbnation as well.
I support and perform at every local cancer benefit show possible that my schedule can allow as well as other charity events.

Describing Webb Dalton and his style of music is like describing the different seasons. He was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama on the sounds of Hank Williams, Sr., Merle Haggard, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. After moving to Memphis, Tennessee, he grew up on the diverse sounds of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Sun Studio, B. B. King, and the Blues of World Famous Beale Street.
Webb has toured/opened for George Strait, Garth Brooks, George Jones, Randy Travis, and The Romantics, and only scratches the surface of who Webb has worked with over the years. Webb has also had chart success with his previous releases, and videos aired on CMT and GAC.
Webb’s latest CD, “Mine’s Bigger” reveals his diverse style of music and songwriting that has been described as “Rockabilly HonkyTonkin’ RockNRoll”. Although not a fan of being labeled, Webb feels that this description comes pretty close.
Songwriting has always been one of Webb’s loves, writing songs of the heart, songs that people can relate to and ideas that come from day to day life. “Mine’s Bigger” is an example of Webb’s unique writing style. “The idea came from a conversation between my son and me. My son is 6’3, 260 lbs., and has never been hesitant showing affection with hugs or telling me he loves me, no matter who is around. My son had called me and told me he was going to a friend’s house after school. I told him to be careful. He said he would and that he loved me. I told him I loved him more. He told me, mine’s bigger and I told him my love’s bigger. I knew right after I said it, I had to write it.”
You can find Webb performing on Beale Street in Memphis, TN and along the Gulf Coast in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach, Alabama, as well as Perdido Key, Pensacola and the Florida Keys. Webb’s music can be found on iTunes, Amazon and cdBaby.

Lee has been playing as a solo act and with his live band Lee & The Hellz Yeah in the Gulf Coast area since 2004. At the moment Lee is working on a new solo record The Leavin Sound. The solo album is influenced by his acoustic solo work and creates a down home feel with plenty of his signature slide guitar work. This album has tinges of everything from blues rock to downhome gospel, r&b and what some might call soulful country.

When Sugarcane Jane makes music, heads bob, feet tap, smiles spread, and hearts beat just a little faster. Truly, the musical sugar the band produces is indeed so fine. The alchemy of Alabama’s own Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee Crawford yields mystically sweet, organic harmonies which are both accessible and familiar, while at the same time intuitive and distinctly their own. Whether singing original works (like Louisiana, Butterfly, and Sugar) or putting their down home sound on familiar classics (ranging from an incredibly playful and fun Hot Rod Lincoln to a spontaneous rendition of Roger Miller’s Dang Me or a dreamily mellow and psychedelic Midnight Rider), Sugarcane Jane’s appeal cuts across generations and appeals to a wide audience. If it’s your first time to hear Sugarcane Jane, you’ll find yourself saying, “Wow, who are these guys? They’re good.” If you are familiar with their work, you’ll overhear such comments and smile knowingly as you remember the exact time and place you first stumbled onto the band.
