What clubs did you join back in the day? Were you a member of Bill Griffin’s Castaway’s Club? Or maybe the Boondocks, Bushes? How about Reds? Talking to friends, there was a lot of great acts that played in these clubs. You had to be a member to get in to most of these clubs due to certain laws around alcohol sales and food sales. We thought it would be good to build a list of these clubs all over the Southeast that played the beach music artists. Tell us what clubs you joined so that you could see the bands and groups we claim as beach music.

Really wanted to hear the music and watch the drummers. I used a fake draft card to get into Winston Salem’s Polo Grill to hear Bob Collins and the Fabulous Five play “Jukebox.” Used the same card to get into the Castaways to hear The Monzas play “Hey I know You.” As the drummer in bands later, we played The Joker’s Three on a number of Sunday nights. Great memories..!!
That is Awesome Ric. Thanks for Sharing!
I went to the Castaways Club in the 80’S to listen & shag to beach music. My father lived in Greensboro & went about every weekend ( in his 60’s). We loved going. I attended 5 Bill Griffin Beach Music Festivals when they were in the 80’s. I loved every minute of it. I think back then, when I could still dance, I always had fun & weekends to remember. I loved beach music then and still love it now for always.
