It has been repeated over and over that Carolina beach music is more of a lifestyle than a genre. When ones ponders that statement for a while, it really hits home. Carolina beach music does, at the very least, represent a lifestyle. It represents a lifestyle that has trackable roots back to the 1940s…possibly earlier.
CarolinaBeachMusic.com is a living, growing documentary blog about the history of Carolina beach music from the perspective of those who lived it as fans, performers, promoters, record producers, shaggers, or any other connection to the lifestyle. Anyone can submit an entry through our Contact Form. We intend to ultimately have a chronological history of the major (and minor events) that helped shape the lifestyle known as Carolina beach music.
Be sure to tell your friends about our project.
