Special to Iredell Free News
Is summertime calling you? Bring your friends and family to Downtown Statesville on Friday, June 3, as crowd favorite The Catalinas perform at the Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series.
The Catalinas, America’s premier Beach Music band, began performing in 1957 and celebrates its 65th anniversary in 2022! The band’s popularity is based primarily in the Southeast; 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.
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 been the anthem of southeastern beach lovers for decades!
Special thanks to Lake Norman Pool & Spa for being the Entertainment Sponsor for this concert.
The Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series offers free entertainment to Statesville’s residents, neighbors and visitors from May through September, and features music of all styles.
