When : 5:30-8:30 pm
BEACH MUSIC began in the late 50’s and early 60’s with the new music creating a dance loosely related to the swing known as the Shag or the Carolina Shag… still the official dance of North and South Carolina. It was Motown meets the Beach with early shaggin’ songs by Hitsville superbands such as the Drifters like Under the Boardwalk and Up on The Roof. The Platters, Four Tops, The Spinners, and The Temptations all had Beach music hits like With This Ring, Sugar Pie Honey Bunch, I’ll Be around, and My Girl. Even legendary country bands like Alabama joined the movement with their own Shaggin on the Boulevard!
The Tams, best known for the Platinum hit, Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy, preform all the great nostalgic tunes with a high-energy entertainment that will have everyone feeling young, carefree, foolish and happy. They entertain crowds around the globe with their blend of smooth Soul, R&B and Beach blend that showcases many of their original hits like What Kind of Fool, Too Much Fooling Around, Hey Girl Don’t Bother Me, I’ve Been Hurt, and more, in addition to other hits by other popular Beach music artists like I Love Beach Music, by The Embers, Carolina Girls by Chairmen of the Board and tunes by The Showmen.
