Few other decades have captured the attention of Americans past and present — nor stoked our feelings of nostalgia for the past — quite like the 1960s. It was an age when our nation grew up in many ways, and some of its most memorable relics and themes can be found in its timeless beach music. From the Beach Boys and the Drifters to Elvis and Jan & Dean, the coastal music of the era lives on and remains strong, still inspiring new generations of music fanatics every day.
For visitors to the Grand Strand, a step back in time to the favorite tunes and steps of the ’60s is as easy as making a trip down memory lane — or in this case, a trip down Highway 17 to Port Drive and Myrtle Beach’s GTS Theatre, where “Beach Party — A Tribute to the ’60s and Beach Music” offers guests a night filled with the top beach songs of the era performed by a group of incredibly talented singers and dancers.
Running nearly two hours in length, “Beach Party” provides an enriching, lighthearted and fun experience that will have GTS Theatre guests twisting the night away — or maybe even doing the local-favorite Carolina Shag up and down the aisles. Artists whose favorites are brought to life in the tribute show include The Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, General Johnson, The Drifters, Chairman of the Board, Connie Francis, Nancy Sinatra and more. Tickets range in price from $8.95 for children to $32.95 for the VIP Front Row experience. For more information and to grab your tickets, visit gtstheatre.com/beach-party.
Even when the beach party is over, the fun keeps on going at the GTS Theatre. Among the other shows on the GTS 2018 season lineup are:
Motor City Musical – Motown Tribute Show
Elvis – Live – Celebrating Elvis Presley
Men of Motor City – A Tribute to the Male Motown Groups
