Our Story

The Catalinas welcome Angela Resignalo as a lead vocalist in our band! Angela is from Mt Airy, NC and was recently a star performer at the Rudy Theater in Selma, NC since 2006. Angela brings youth and energy to our stage and we are very excited about what the future has in store for us with Angela. Be listening and watching out for her new recordings! In addition to Angela, Donald Jordan has joined the band on guitar and Norman Allred in now on drums. 

The Catalinas began in 1957 and celebrates their 64 Anniversary in 2021!  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, weddings 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.

Our latest CD "Summer 21", released August 20, 2021, is now available here on our site and consists of 12 Catalina recordings that all charted in the beach music world going back to 2017 plus one bonus classic track. Our CD, Dancin' Romancin', was nominated for "Album of the Year" at the Carolina Beach Music Awards. It was officially released August 18, 2015. Call your favorite on-air DJ and request new music by The Catalinas.
