Charleston Beach Music and Shag Festival

When: Sat., Aug. 24 and Sun., Aug. 25 2013

If the word “shag” makes you think of Austin Powers, then you’re probably not from South Carolina, where the shag is the state dance. But now’s your time to get your Southern education on, and we’ve got the perfect way to do just that. The eighth annual Charleston Beach Music and Shag Festival will play all the beach music necessary for you to master the dance of the South, plus the demos will provide insider tips to really becoming a shag master. Live music by the Carolina Breeze Band, Shrimp City Slim with Juke Joint Johnny, Legends of Beach, Angel Rissoff, the Fantastic Shakers, and Jim Quick & Coastline will set the pace, and DJs Gerry Scott, Andy Todd, Betty Brown, and Jim Bowers will play all the classic shag hits.
