IS SUMMERTIME CALLING YOU? Bring your friends and family to Downtown Statesville on Friday, June 3 as crowd favorite Beach Music band, The Catalinas, perform at the Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series.
The Catalinas, America's premier Beach Music band, began in 1957, and celebrates their 65th anniversary in 2022! The band's popularity is based primarily in the southeastern US; however, their music is played on radio/internet stations all over the world. Known for their quality, tight sound, and energy onstage, they are one of the "in demand" groups for city festivals, weddings and private parties, always playing a variety of music that suits all ages. Though known for Beach Music regionally and nationally for their hit "Summertime's Calling Me", they play all styles of music to a high standard. "Summertime's Callin' Me" has become the anthem of southeastern beach lovers for decades! The Catalinas, based in Charlotte and Statesville, currently have 3 songs on the Beach Music charts as of June 2021.
