We are very excited to announce the addition of Angela Goins Resignalo as a new lead singer and background vocalist. Angela has over 13 years experience as a theater performer and is from Mt Airy NC. New recordings featuring Angela coming soon!!

The new Catalinas book, written by John "Fessa " Hook,  "Summertimes' Callin' Me" covering the years 1957 to 1968, is now available! John did an amazing job researching this book and it's replete with pictures and the history of the band going back to the very beginning. For your copy, go to borninthecarolinas.com, then click on the tab that says "store". The 2nd edition covering the years after 1968 will be available later this year.

THE CATALINAS were inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2013 and into the Beach Music Hall of Fame in 1995.
2019 marks the 62nd 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 and written by keyboardist Johnny Barker, 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, The Galleon and at the Horseshoe.  Simply contact Gary Barker at 704-450-9040 or through our email at thecatalinas1@gmail.com.  Our CDs, "Dancin' Romancin", "Line Up", "Anthology", "Summertime's Callin' Me" and others are available from this site or at Judy's House of Oldies in N Myrtle Beach.  Want to stay in touch with THE CATALINAS?

    Heard you this past weekend in Edenton.... You still sound great! Danced to your great music in Myrtle Beach in the 60’s... Have to say I was very very disappointed you never played “Miss Grace “ as you promised when I took the time to request it☹️

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.

    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!
