The Catalinas, a local crowd favorite, will perform at the Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series on August 26.
America’s premier Beach Music band, The Catalinas began performing in 1957. The band’s popularity is based primarily in the southeastern U.S., but 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. Based in Charlotte and Statesville, they had three songs on the Beach Music charts as of June 2021.
