The Embers, The Heart and Soul of Beach Music

9780984039142: The Embers, The Heart and Soul of Beach Music

With the end of World War II came an explosion of births and a new affluence in the US that fueled new freedoms, new ideas, and a fabulous new lifestyle that included flashy new cars, transistor radios, and the emergence of Rock 'n Roll. And, for these baby boomers, particularly in the south, there was no allure greater than that of the beach. For the beach was an entirely different world. Not just a world of sand and surf, but a place that had its own dance and its own music--a unique blend of Rhythm and Blues that could only be found on faraway radio station in the dead of night; a sound that grew beyond its coastal roots to become known as Carolina Beach Music.

Only one band has been there since the beginning and no other band has had more influence on the nature of this style of music. This is the story of that band. This is the history of the Embers.
