For music lovers seeking a melody-filled beach retreat, sometimes the harmonies of the crashing waves and the whistling of the sea breezes just aren’t enough. Luckily, the Grand Strand offers plenty of live-music options — along with a range of different musical styles and venues.
During your next visit to the Myrtle Beach area, consider catching a live show at one of these eclectic musical offerings in the area:
Tin Roof: Found about a mile south of Caribbean Resort & Villas, this Nashville-based entertainment venue rocks the tagline “A Live Music Joint” and brings live music and DJs to its separate stages nightly. When revelers want to take a break from the music to grab some fresh air, Atlantic Ocean views and sea breezes, they can head to the open-air patio that divides the third-floor venue’s live-music room from its dance-focused Green Room. And when hunger sets in, a menu of made-from-scratch, Southern-inspired “Better Than Bar Food” items is available. To check out the venue’s loaded music calendar, visit tinroofmyrtlebeach.com.
Carolina Opry: Offering a regular schedule of themed shows like Time Warp — Hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s; the Thunder & Light Dance, Laser & Magic Show; Pure Magic starring magical couple the Wagsters; The Christmas Show of the South; and a Performing Arts Series featuring national touring acts, this North Kings Highway venue packs in the crowds year-round. Visit thecarolinaopry.com to see the full show lineup.
Legends in Concert: Located at shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot Broadway at the Beach, Legends in Concert is known for bringing the biggest stars of all time to the stage nearly every night of the year via its lengthy roster of acclaimed tribute artists. Inspired by one of the longest-running and most successful shows in Las Vegas, the Myrtle Beach production’s current lineup of tribute artists includes award-winning Travis Powell as Elvis Presley, Cynthia Minx as Aretha Franklin, Dan Meisner and Kenny Barret as The Blues Brothers, Brian Duprey as Frank Sinatra, and Stacey Whitton Summers as Martina McBride.

House of Blues: Located at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, the juke joint-inspired House of Blues hosts national touring acts for house-rocking concerts throughout the year in its spacious indoor concert hall. And performances are presented on The Deck — a large outdoor patio featuring plenty of open space for dancing, as well as cabanas, firepits, tables and chairs — seasonally as the weather suits. To add some soul to your Sunday morning breakfast, check out the Gospel Brunch, which pairs live Gospel music with an all-you-can-eat buffet of Southern staples, plus tender carving stations and delicious desserts.
