That would be Beach bands as in those who play that great Beach Music. Many bands in the coastal North and South Carolina area, play at least some Beach Music, but these are some of the "Biggies" on the Beach Music scene.
I'll be seeing Jim Quick and the Coastline Band at Goldsboro's Center Street Jam on Thursday.
These concert sites are all south of the Cape Fear River and heading towards the South Carolina Border.
