The Catalinas

Pop, Rock, Beach, 1960s-2020s

Catalinas Beach MusicThe Catalinas have been a fixture in the Carolina beach music scene for nearly 50 years. A horn-driven band that sounds a little bit like a lighter version of Chicago, the Catalinas were formed in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1957, and had regional hits with "You Haven't the Right" in 1967 and the beach music anthem "Summertime's Calling Me" in 1975. 

Other tunes performed at their shows are from a diversified group of bands, including, some great medley's, e.g. Kool and the Gang, Earth Wind & Fire, Four Tops, Temptations, Spinners, and The Drifters, etc. plus some Bruno Mars!  The Catalinas have one of the best performing bands on the circuit with their 3 lead vocalists, 3 horns, and excellent rhythm section.

Whether in the Carolinas, at the beach, or around the USA, The Catalinas know that summertime is calling YOU and they are there to answer that call.  So keep sunshine bright all year long with a GREAT Party Band, THE CATALINAS - North Carolina Music Hall of Fame 2013 Inductees!
