  • TONY

    you need to book a band called YACHT ROCK REVUE. THEY WOULD FIT IN VERY WELL AT THIS VENUE.

      They are fantastic…only problem is that they aren’t Beach Music. They are all the rock from the late 70s (Steely Dan, Boz Scaggs, Pablo Cruise, even some Commodores). I’m not sure the genre mismatch is a big problem, though, as the audience is likely the same.

    • Tee

      Last year it was Right in front of the Movie Theater so I’m assuming it will be held in the same place

      • James


  • bill

    I have the same question.. Is the concert still on or moved indoors?

  • Stephen
  • Denise

    Are The Embers playing tonight? I always forget about this concert series…but, not tonight! Thanks :-)

  • R

    Is it cancelled tonight because of weather?

  • Brittany

    Is beach music still going on? Tonight June 19?

  • Beach Bum

    Just a quick word of disappointment. I have been 4 times this year. Once rained out. Twice bands playing, like tonight, were not even close to beach music. North Hills needs to change the series name to sometimes beach music. Tonight was popular music at best even with rap(CRAP). Get with program. Don’t false advertise to get people to come and spend money buying dinner and then be disappointed!!! June 26th.

    • HRiley

      It’s a free concert….you don’t have to buy dinner. You must be a beach music fan to complain about free entertainment. Jackass.

  • jj

    Wow, thanks for hosting this great event! Last week we saw Ken Knox and Company, formally Chairmen of the Board, and they were Awesome!

  • fran

    Is it BYOB?

    • http://www.northhillsraleigh.com/directory/midtownevents/ Midtown Events

      There is a no cooler policy at the Midtown Beach Music Series and outside alcohol is not allowed; however, there are cold drinks for sale at the event.

  • Mike

    It would be helpful if a notification is put on the website if the concert is going to be cancelled. Last Thursday I visited this site to see if the concert was still on and not seeing anything cancelling drove an hour only to find the stage not up, but no other notice. There was at least a dozen others there expecting Jim Quick & Coastline. Many checked the web site as well

    • Caleb

      agreed. a rain announcement on the site would be nice.

    • http://www.northhillsraleigh.com/directory/midtownevents/ Midtown Events

      Cancellations will be posted on both our Twitter and Facebook pages.

      • Dwight Hedrick

        The radio is still a good media to let us know of
        cancellations …. 102.9 !!!! Especially, when it
        can be raining there and just fine elsewhere.

  • Nestor Garcia

    Will be there music tonight 07/10 ?

  • Carolyn Langley

    I keep hearing the concert is cancelled tonight due to storms starting at 5:45. Is that the case?
