You are correct sir. Shagging and beer drinking. Those that liked the Super Bowl halftime show know nothing about music.

I liked the SB halftime show. I also like beach music (and rock, bluegrass, metal, grunge, alternative, Americana, jazz)

Am I not allowed to like multiple genres of music?

We were at the Beaufort Water Festival about 30 years ago when the Embers were playing and when they were ready to do the Medley, they said you better be ready to sweat if you danced. Awesome long medley of music.

by the Embers to be real beach music. I'm almost 67 years old and remember hearing the real beach music singers and groups - remember seeing a lot of them in person. Not a cover band like the Embers trying to do the original hit songs. They're a pretend beach music band.

Well Tiger77, I am almost 70 years old and we can no longer see all the pioneer groups, we have to get the best there is today. Little Red and the Tams, The Embers, Fantastic Shakers and others are as good as it gets today and we can go see them, usually free. I still miss The Chairman and hear him say, "I wrote me a song". Music is music unless it is that noise that was at the Super Bowl.

No, they are not original pioneers of Beach Music from the 1950s, but those people are all dead now. And individually most of them only had one or two hits anyway.

The Embers are a fantastically talented group of singers, musicians, and entertainers who keep Beach Music alive.

Their impact on the evolution of Beach Music should not be underestimated.

One my favorite beach music groups was General Norman Johnson and the Chairmen of the Board. We used to go see them several times a year. Unfortunately, the General passed about 12 years ago and Danny Woods passed three years ago.

Here's a link to a good medley set by them which was filmed a few years before General Johnson died...

Kenny Knox, the Chairman singer and horn player, still tours as The Chairmen of The Board featuring Ken Knox. They resume a tour schedule next month.

My wife has always liked the Fabulous Shakers (I think that is their name). She had me take her to the Landmark while we were dating and we have seen them a few times over the years. I think they have retired.

When did "Beach Music" become a thing?


Feb 14, 2022, 6:50 PM

Being from South Carolina, I've known about beach music for a long time, but I can remember growing up in the 1960s and hearing a lot of the songs that are now called "beach music", but never heard them called that until well into the 70s. I also remember trying to explain it to people from northern states who were puzzled by the term for the same reasons ... "Why are they calling that beach music?" they'd ask; "It's just old R&B Pop that's been around for a while, and it wasn't written in or about Carolina beaches". I mean, I understand how those songs were good for dancing and became associated with happy times at the beach for people in the 50s and 60s, and as a nostalgia developed new bands and artists decided to make similar music and at some point what was once well established R&B Pop was claimed by people in the Carolinas and rebranded and reinvented as "Beach Music". Just trying to figure out exactly when that happened, because I remember a time when Beach Music was not a thing.

I think it has alot to do with back when Myrtle Beach was an unknown commodity to most outsiders. Many big names played in that po-dunk coastal town that locals from surrounding areas would have never been able to see otherwise. They witnessed it at the beach, hence it was their "Beach Music".

circa late sixties, very early seventies

I think back in the 60's, it was just considered "shagging" music!

But I know I have an old compilation album from back in the early 70's that was titled, "Beach Music Volume 1"

Yeah, I'm guessing mid to late 70s is about right before

the old existing soul/R&B songs that had been used for shagging at the beach for years became more widely, commercially known as "Beach Music". Once that became recognized as a seperate genre, then groups started to spring up and write songs specifically about Myrtle Beach and the Carolina beaches. So, while I'd say regionally some people had been shagging on vacation at Carolina beaches since the 1950s, it was almost all done to existing soul/R&B music that was made without shagging or Carolina beaches in mind. I'm just guessing that music made specifically for shagging with Carolina beaches in mind did not really begin until at least the mid 70s.

Ripete Records is a small, independently distributed record label specializing in the reissue of Carolina Beach Music compilations for shag dance enthusiasts, mainly in the Southeastern US, as well as providing an outlet for newer recordings by R&B artists, such as The Drifters, The Clovers, and Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs. In addition to local Beach Music classics, the label's compilation collections often include a smattering of nationally-known R&B classics from the mid-1950s through the early 1980s, especially those with swing-style back-beats suitable for the Carolina shag style of dancing. Ripete Records was founded by Marion Carter and Pete Smolen in 1979.

Ripete is based far from any large city, in the quiet rural farming community of Bishopville, South Carolina, in 2150 Elliott Hwy.

Marion "Rion" Carter is a Clemson Grad.
