THE CATALINAS were inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2013 and into the Beach Music Hall of Fame in 1995.
2018 marks the 61st Anniversary of THE CATALINAS which began in 1957.  The Catalinas shows always spotlight our musical roots with music by groups such as Hank Ballard and the Midnighters,  Jackie Wilson, Marvin Gay, Huey Smith, The Falcons, The Del Vikings,  The Gladiolas, Ray Charles and more.  THE CATALINAS classic, "Summertime's Callin' Me", was recorded originally in 1975, is still being played  by bands and DJs all over the world.  This song is credited by many as the genesis for a genre of music called  "Beach Music",  popular in the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia. Want to hear beach music on Pandora? Just create a station called "Summertimes Callin Me" or "The Catalinas".  

Popular venues available to the general public to see THE CATALINAS perform are scattered around the NC, SC and Va areas. Festivals and Live After Five events are some of the band's favorite venues.   In Charlotte the band regularly performs at Romare Beardon Park. In Raleigh, Loafers Beach Club, at North Myrtle Beach at Deckerz and at the Horseshoe.  There are still a few open dates available in 2018.  Simply contact Jack Stallings at 704-564-4632 or Gary Barker at 704-870-9040 or through our email at thecatalinas1@gmail.com.  Our latest CD, Dancin' Romancin' is available from this site or at Judy's House of Oldies in N Myrtle Beach.  Want to stay in touch with THE CATALINAS?

    I just spent over two hours with these magnificent showmen and band at The Horseshoe in downtown NMB. The huge crowd filled the dancing area, and everyone was singing along to your totally awesome Beach Music. You guys put on a very energetic and fabulous show. Thanks so much for performing here tonight.

    You performed at the Dunn Boogie on Broad Street on June 15, 2017. I had not heard of your band before, but I went anyways. I just loved it! You all can sing anything! You sang older songs and current songs. I would definitely go again if I knew you were going to be performing. Loved it! Keep doing your thing because it works!
