  1. 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.

  2. You really ought to consider running it an additional 4-6 weeks in the fall, the temperature is still warm, and its not so stifling hot.

  3. Hello, given the weather, will there be beach music tonight?

  4. Is beach music cancelled tonight, 23 May 2013 due to thunderstorms?

  5. Is this still on ?? One of your sponsors sent out a mass text saying it was cancelled

    • wow… if it keeps raining, we’re in for a LOT of water. whew…. what are the chances of that? . . . someone ask Fishel.

  6. Do email blasts or something go out if the show is cancelled due to rain?

  7. Is the show still of for the Shakers? It is raining here in the North Hills area at 5PM. Will someone let us know

  8. ‘SLEEPING BOOTY’ baby!!!!
    It’s going to be a funky, shaking that booty, gett’n down to the floor FUNK
    Put on your dancing shoes, It going to get all the LIVE!!!


  10. Has the concert with the North Tower Band been rescheduled or has it been moved indoors? If moved indoors, where?

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

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

  13. 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.

    • 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.

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

    • 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.

  15. 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

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

      .@TaxiTaxiRaleigh As of right now, #MidtownBeachMusic is still on! We’ll keep everyone updated via our Facebook and Twitter pages.

  17. Is it possible for different local bands to get in the lineup for 2015? If so what is the process? Than you
