Places to hear beach/shag music locally
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:
Music Format at BBC
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.
