Taking the stage on August 25th, is a band that is considered to be “The heart and Soul of Beach Music,” The Embers featuring Craig Woolard. There are many bands or groups touring today yet few of them are considered a musical institution. The Embers have solidified their position as a thriving musical entity and have left their mark on listeners for decades. The Embers boast numerous albums and single releases that span decades and all the crazes continuing to exhibit top quality showmanship, musicianship, and professionalism. Having been inducted into the South Carolina Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame and most recently the South Carolina Beach Music Hall of Fame, The Embers are honored to carry the moniker of North Carolina’s Official Ambassadors of Music. The Embers are widely considered a musical marvel and have laid the groundwork for what has become known as ‘Beach Music’ in the Carolinas, Virginias, and the gulf coast region of North America, and every beach in between. The Embers themselves consider the genre of Beach Music as “music with a memory” and have been creating lasting memories since they were formed in 1958. Simply put – the Embers perform feel good music – music with lots of heart and soul.
