Closing out the season, on Thursday, October 26th, is the “always popular-back-by-demand” Band of Oz will take the stage for their eighth appearance in the series. The Band of Oz, a North Carolina institution, was formed in 1967 as a part-time band playing fraternity parties and high school proms all over the South. In 1977 the band went on the road full time. Since that time, the band has made an exceptional name for itself throughout the Southeast performing at many top clubs as well as countless corporate and private events and has received excellent reviews all along the way. For years, the group has been a guest on nearly every major beach music festival in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia. Winners of numerous Cammy Awards from the Carolina Beach Music Association, the Band of Oz remains one of THE most successful groups in the Southeast. The band consists of a dynamic eight-member group complete with a full horn section, and wherever they travel, they always energize audiences and keep the dance floor packed. In addition to performing many of their # 1 hit songs, they offer the very best in beach, R&B, and Motown: as well as some of today’s most popular dance and top 40 hits.
