Free Plaza Concert Again Saturday
A free country rock concert will be held on Douglasville’s O’Neal Plaza Saturday.
The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County is pleased to present its final Fall Concert on the Plaza at the O'Neal Plaza in historic downtown Douglasville on Saturday, Sept. 22. The performance begins at 7 p.m. This week features contemporary country rock PARIS LUNA. Supported by the City of Douglasville and the Douglas County Board of Commissioners, this special outdoor event is free and open to the general public. Ample free parking is available near O’Neal Plaza. Listeners are reminded to bring their own seating.
Rocker and roller PARIS LUNA has shared the stage with top name acts like Zac Brown, Rusted Root, Chris Gibbs from Modern English and Devon Allman. The band members are Michael Harris (guitarist), Kane Russell (drummer), Toby Marriott (The Strays) and Heather Russell (vocalist, pianist, acoustic guitarist and songwriter), known as Paris Luna. She was awarded “Best Rock Fema...le Vocalist” by the Georgia Music Awards this spring.
The band has found an exceptional formula to creatively fuse country and rock, producing a unique sound all of their own. Paris Luna's first album, “City Lights,” was released early 2007. The album reached rapid success and has, to date, been signed to Discovery Channel for use in 187 countries and on five networks. It has also aired on more than 30 television shows featured on networks including E!, Lifetime, MTV, VH1 and Showtime. The band has been ‘Road Warriors’ for many years playing more than 285 shows a year in venues including The Bitter End in New York, Ciceros in St. Louis, The Centerstage in Atlanta, South By Southwest Music Festival 2007 and there again in 2011.
Paris Luna was nominated for the 2011 GA Music Awards in the Best Rock Female category; the band and its hit song, “Tell Me Why,” has been featured on 94.9 The Bull Atlanta’s Backyard Country many times and is quickly becoming a favorite of Backyard Country. The Cultural Arts Council is honored to bring musicians of their caliber and acclaim to Douglasville this spring.
