Aug. 28 — Band of Oz

Band of Oz

In what has become honored tradition, the Band of Oz concludes the 2013 Sand in the Streets series with its particular style of music which brings fans back year after year. A group of young musicians got together in 1967 as a part-time band playing frat parties and high school proms all over the South. The band with its beach music patina takes its music, featuring a full horn section, to more than 200 venues a year. It has been a guest on most of the beach concerts in the Carolinas, Virginia and Georgia.

In line with another tradition, the Band of Oz concert kicks off the United Way Fall campaign.

Visit the Band of Oz web site. Sample music available.
