Our Story

The Catalinas began in 1957 and celebrates their 60 Anniversary in 2017!  The bands popularity is based primarily in southeastern US, however, The Catalinas music is played on radio stations in the UK, Greece and Australia to name a  few. Known for their quality, tight sound and energy onstage, they are one of the "in demand" groups for city festivals and private parties, always playing a variety of music that suits all ages.  Though known for Beach Music, regionally and  nationally for the mega hit "Summertime's Callin' Me",  they play all styles to a high standard of excellence. "Summertime's Callin' Me" has become the anthem of North and South Carolina beach goers as they struggle through the winter waiting on summer to arrive.

Their latest CD, Dancin' Romancin', was nominated for "Album of the Year" at this year's Carolina Beach Music Awards. The CD was officially released August 18, 2015. It is available on CD Baby, Amazon and iTunes, and of course for sale at personal appearances. The response so far has been tremendous. "Cool Breeze", from our CD, was #1 on 94.9 The Surf and regional charts for several weeks. Also charted was "Just One Look" and Let's Celebrate. The latest release "Hard way To Go" is currently  in the top 10. Call your favorite on-air DJ and request new music by The Catalinas.  New releases are periodically scheduled for 2017.
