Bring your friends and family to Downtown Statesville Friday, May 24 as crowd favorite Beach Music Band, The Catalinas, perform at the Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series.
The Catalinas began in 1957 and celebrated their 60th Anniversary in 2017! The bands popularity is based primarily in southeastern US, however, The Catalinas music is played on radio stations in the UK, Greece and Australia to name a few. Known for their quality, tight sound and energy onstage, they are one of the "in demand" groups for city festivals and private parties, always playing a variety of music that suits all ages. Though known for Beach Music, regionally and nationally for the mega hit "Summertime's Callin' Me", they play all styles to a high standard of excellence. "Summertime's Callin' Me" has become the anthem of North and South Carolina beach goers as they struggle through the winter waiting for summer to arrive.
