Beach Music is played in North Myrtle Beach. You probably know what Beach Music is if you have ever visited NMB. Frequent the clubs and lounges on Main Street in Ocean Drive to hear it daily. If you haven’t heard of it, you need to hear the music we call “Carolina Beach Music”. There are many recollections of how it got started. People that live in North Myrtle Beach will say it started here in the Grand Strand area of South Carolina. There are several cities and towns in North Carolina that also claim to be the birthplace. It doesn’t matter where it started. If you are a fan of the music and the official state dance of SC, you need to visit North Myrtle Beach. Plan to visit as much as possible to shag on the dance floors and listen to the best music in the world.
