His hit singles like Rub You the Right Way, Wrap My Body Tight and Fairweather Friend have been heard by millions around the globe. Apart from being a member of the New Edition and LSG, Johnny Gill has also had a successful solo career spawning six studio albums. He has also been dominating the U.S R&B Charts with his singles like There U Go, I'm Still Waiting and My, My, My.
Gill however will not be the only star at the Gulf Coast Summer Fest. Known for his strong baritone vocals, Will Downing is no stranger to R&B and Soul music fans. As he steps on to the stage at the event, fans will get to see him sing some of R&B's biggest hits from his own repertoire as well as those sung by other artists. With a career spanning over two and a half decades, Downing has released numerous charting tracks like John Coltrane's A Love Supreme and a duet with Chante Moore called When You Need Me. He also earned a Grammy nomination back in 2000.
Also at the festival this year will be Dru Hill, a group of guys who produced hits like In My Bed, How Deep Is Your Love, and Never Make a Promise. The Dru Hill group members went on a hiatus a few years back, but their passion for music brought them back together. They are now touring extensively nationwide while also working on their fifth studio album at the same time.
Just to take things up a notch, staple of soul and R&B music, the Average White Band, will also perform their commercially successful tracks like Pick up the Pieces at the festival. Average White Band have been a part of the music landscape for more than four decades now but they still are going as strong as ever. Their hit albums like AWB and Cut the Cake are among the genre's best known works. They have inspired acts like Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, The Beatnuts, Ice Cube, Beastie Boys and many more with all that they have done and achieved over the years.
