In Summary….

With my website, Beach Music Online, I have been sending Internet traffic to beach music artist websites from the beach music artist and band schedule page for over 17 years. This list below is simply a ranking based on the activity of the thousands of beach music fans that visit this bmo website and schedule webpage.

If your favorite artist is not listed on the beach music online band schedule page, please use the comments from below and tell me who is missing. I will add them once I get permission from the artist to link to their schedule. ( Requirement, they must have a website schedule page and it has to be somewhat updated. If they are still showing their next event as Mayflower Festival of 2006, they may not be approved to be added to the list).

  1. Bo,
    Appreciate all you do to keep us shaggers who live outside the Carolinas informed. Hard to find beach music in Florida although a friend of mine wants to get a group together to raise money to bring one of the top bands to SW FLORIDA this fall.
    Love the Chairmen, Catalinas and BOZ (although I agree they are playing many of their songs a beat too fast).

  2. I like this list a lot…are the Chairmen still active? I have a hard time finding them performing very often. Love Oz (wish they would slow down a couple of songs)…Love Catalinas too and look forward to seeing them in NMB this weekend

  3. I think older bands should be listed. Even though some have passed way, they should not br forgotten, or their music rarely played. It is a good thing to honor those that used go be number 1, and not forget them, or not play their music because they passed away, or are no longer playing music. They are and were the best when they played, and many fans still long to hear their music!
