The Catalinas

Our headliners were inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2013 and into the Beach Music Hall of Fame in 1995. 2019 marks the 62nd Anniversary of THE CATALINAS which began in 1957.  The Catalinas shows always spotlight our musical roots with music by groups such as Hank Ballard and the Midnighters,  Jackie Wilson, Marvin Gay, Huey Smith, The Falcons, The Del Vikings,  The Gladiolas, Ray Charles and more.  THE CATALINAS classic, “Summertime’s Callin’ Me”, was recorded originally in 1975 and written by keyboardist Johnny Barker, is still being played  by bands and DJs all over the world.  This song is credited by many as the genesis for a genre of music called  “Beach Music”,  popular in the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia. Want to hear beach music on Pandora? Just create a station called “Summertimes Callin Me” or “The Catalinas”.
