Come to LuLu’s every Sunday afternoon and you will find Greg Brown on stage performing! He has progressed into an amazing songwriter, showing off his talent through his new album “On A Full Moon”, that is receiving rave reviews from his local fans. The album is said to have a definite feel of Jimmy Buffett’s laid-back lifestyle, and is a “must have” for the serious collector.

Brent Burns

Monday, Feb. 02, 2015

 Brent Burns was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. While attending high school and Community college sports were important, but music was in his blood. Brent soon strapped on an electric guitar and was fronting a rock-n-roll band.

Life soon changed when he volunteered for service in Vietnam. Several months after entering combat, Brent was wounded and received the Purple Heart. After a three year recuperation in and out of military hospitals, he returned to his love of music and hit the road performing all over the United States. Later on he felt compelled to take a year off from music and hit the college lecture circuit. Offering honest, insightful, and a humorous look at life as a combat soldier, Brent was able to help others troubled with the effect of the war on their day to day lives.

Brent Burns is no stranger to notoriety.  In response to the oil shortages of the 1980s, Burns wrote the hit song, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food,” which sold 200,000 copies the first day it was released.   Paul Harvey played the song three times; the first and only song ever played in the program’s 35-year history.  Burns’ fame has continued with guest appearances on all three major networks, interviews on the BBC, and featured articles in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune andBillboard Magazine.

Brent also has the distinction of being the first entertainer to sing for American troops overseas since the tragedy of September 11th, 2001.  Besides his busy performance schedule, he continues to perform at benefits around the world, including for the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA) of Australia, the Phoenix Suns Night Hoops Program, American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity, where Brent is building a house with proceeds from his latest CD, “Margarita Smile.”

The employee who best exemplifies the spirit of LuLu's is awarded the "Coconut of the Month"


Month: November

Name: Philip Springer

Hometown: Air-Force Brat, but I claim Niceville, FL.

Job Description: Administrator: keep the Executive Chef and Purchasing Manager on top of every item, ingredient, and supply need of the restaurant

Hire Date: June 1, 2006

Time at LuLuís: 8 Years 8 Months

Favorite Moment at LuLuís: I love the All-Staff Meetings. It really gets you fired up to be a part of it, and to be a part of a place that makes a real difference in Gulf Shores - all thanks to our wonderful leader (the best business owner I have ever worked for - honestly), Ms. Lucy.

Why do you love working here? Is there a word limit? It’s family; even though you may leave, it’s the relationships and the attitudes that bring you back. People are happy to work here, and when you do come back - it’s like you never left. We all have a standard for excellence that has seeped in just by showing up to work; whether we know it or not. It shows up in our pride, whether we know that it does, or not. Essentially, if you work here – you become a better person, whether you meant to or not. I thank God for my Job every day (well most days…) but it is most definitely by His Grace that I am in the right place, at the right time, with the perfect amount of joy, and with the perfect amount of fulfillment from what He has given me to do. He has placed me in a job where I can truly enjoy and honestly care about the answer to the question, “How are you doing today?” from my fellow summer soldiers. So I guess my real answer as to why I love to work here is because He put me here. He is for me, not against me; and my job is certainly proof.

Favorite menu item (that you canít get enough of): Buffalo Quesadilla

Favorite Drink at LuLuís: JB's Mo' Perfect, or a Pina Colada of course.

Favorite Band that Plays at Working in the back I don't get to see much, but honestly, Jimmy's music on the sound system does get stuck in my head a lot - and the occasional Brent Burns when he performs live.

Favorite Holiday at LuLuís: Noon-Years-Eve 2015 was the first time I have ever been able to see it from the customer perspective and I gotta say it was pretty awesome!

Favorite Event at LuLuís: Summer Time! But to be specific: The Employee Appreciation Party because we can all hang out together at the same time.
