Places to hear beach/shag
Unfortunately aside from our own
BBC night, there aren't too many places to hear beach & shag
music locally, but here are a few suggestions:
1) Every Sunday
night, local radio station 95.9 FM broadcasts a
syndicated beach show from 6-9 pm called 'The Big Kahuna's Beach
Party'. Check it out!
Saturday tune into Larry Williams Beach Party Live
Radio Show airing on WFOS 88.7 FM in the Virginia Beach
area or online at www.cpschools.com
and click on WFOS Live Radio . Be sure to call in
your request or dedication at 757-547-1036.
Music Format at
There always seems to be a great
difference of opinion regarding the definition of "beach
music." Many have tried to define it. I make no such attempt
here! Let me suffice it to say that our music format is
predominantly a rhythm and blues style, characteristic of Carolina
beach music from the 50's and 60's; however, we are not an oldies
club. Most of the music played at our club consists of "new"
releases made over the past decade, purchased from music vendors
in the southern Carolina states, and often referred to as "beach
music". Typically this involves music which is anywhere from
100-130 beats per minute and thus "shaggable." It also
involves music from many different "genres" such as R&B,
Motown, contemporary and even country - as long as the beat is
danceable. Come on out and experience it for yourself.
You won't be disappointed.
Our DJ's do their best to provide
an assortment of music that everyone will enjoy. If however, you
find that you would prefer to hear something else, by all means
make a request. Our DJ's are quite knowledgeable and
accommodating! Do keep in mind that most of our members shag or
swing though and thus the focus is on playing music to
suit the dancers' needs.
Our DJ's are members of the
Association of Beach and Shag Club DJ's.
