Carolina Beach, North Carolina: A Curiously Entertaining Destination for Music Enthusiasts

October 13-14 marks 19th Annual Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival featuring Gregg Allman

Carolina Beach, NC (I-Newswire) September 19, 2012 - Carolina Beach has been entertaining families for decades with its nostalgic charm and tagline to "stay original." The live music scene in this seaside North Carolina town is a big draw for residents and visitors alike. Music lovers can enjoy the sounds of local bands, traveling musicians and popular music festivals day and night at many Carolina Beach hangouts.

Famed Southern rocker and lead singer of The Allman Brothers Band, Gregg Allman will call the area home when he headlines the 19th Annual Pleasure Island Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival on October 13-14. It will be a weekend of non-stop musical talent on two stages, featuring nationally recognized artists and award winning, locally prepared seafood. Tickets are available for purchase online.

Carolina Beach is also home to one of the country's longest-running music festivals, the Carolina Beach Music Festival. June 2012 marked the 27th consecutive year of the popular event, with next year's festival already set for June 1, 2013. The Carolina Beach Music Festival is the only music festival held on the beach along the North Carolina coast. Thousands of beach music lovers flock to this annual event to enjoy a full day of live entertainment with the hottest beach music bands in the South, and some good ole' Shaggin', of course.

The inaugural Bluegrass by the River festival was held earlier this year in Pleasure Island, which is made up of Kure Beach and Carolina Beach. The second annual event is planned for May 4, 2013. The all-day event features music, clogging and an open jam session. Pickers of all kinds are invited to bring their instruments and enjoy bluegrass...island style.

Music lovers also gather at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk for weekly Fireworks by the Sea events featuring live music followed by fireworks on Thursday nights during the summer months. Another music landmark is Ocean Grill & Tiki Bar, which boasts is own pier and live outdoor music from June through September. Many Carolina Beach venues offer live music on select nights throughout the fall season as well, such as every Tuesday night at Sea Witch Cafe and all weekend long at The Lazy Pirate, which hosts live music on Friday nights, singer-songwriter concerts on Saturday nights and Reggae Festivus concerts on Sunday nights.

Songwriters and musicians flock to Carolina Beach even when they aren't taking the stage, inspired by its slightly off center vibe and charm. Grammy-nominated N.C. native Tift Merritt has called Carolina Beach home more than once, spending extended songwriting vacations at Carolina Beach.

Fall is the perfect time to visit Carolina Beach, whether you want to tap your toes to some tunes or just enjoy a beach getaway with friends and family. Visitors can enjoy curiously entertaining events this fall at Carolina Beach, along with great seaside entertainment, an original boardwalk, and plenty of family friendly things to see and do throughout the fall season.
