THE CATALINAS were inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2013 and into the Beach Music Hall of Fame in 1995.
2017 marks the 60th Anniversary of THE CATALINAS which began in 1957.  A special stage show commemorating our 60th Anniversary will be performed during the summer of 2017, spotlighting 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 Summertime's Callin' Me, 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".  

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 the band's favorite venues.   In Charlotte the band regularly performs at Lynn's Dance Club and downtown 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 2017 to book the 60th Anniversary Show.  Simply contact Jack Stallings at 704-564-4632 or Gary Barker at 704-870-9040.  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?

    The only thing better than the weather was the awesome sound of my favorite beach group in Troutman, NC at the Iredell Fairgrounds for the 2nd annual Thank you Veterans event. But for a moment I was back at OD walking in the sand and listening to you guys. Keep the music coming and looking forward to seeing you again somewhere, some place, some time.

    I'm a vice president at Rockingham Community College - we loved having you on our campus today for the afternoon concert. It was a fitting way to end a nice day of celebrating our new president's installation. I was especially glad to meet Johnny Barker - "Summertime's Calling Me" has long been one of our 'survival' songs at home once we reach January ... it's played repeatedly to help us get through the winter months! Hope to see you in concert again soon!

    We had a blast at Coyote Joes last night. We haven't seen the Catalinas in years and were pleasantly surprised when you started that you lived up to your reputation. Yall were the best band in the show and we were there most of the day. Can't wait til you are back in Charlotte. Great show guys!
