Longtime local bar band the Cool plans to host their eighth annual holiday fundraiser Cool Yule Xmas Party on Folly Beach next week. Singer/keyboardist Fiona Phillips, guitarist/singer Christi Smoak, lead guitarist Bill Cool, bassist Robbie Bendell, and drummer Adam Bradley recently put the final party lineup and prize details together for the Cool Yule, which is set for Sunday afternoon and evening at the Sand Dollar (7 Center St.). The roster is a mix of rock, blues, and pop acts, including North by South, the Groove Junkies, the Sirens, Rotie Salley (of Soul Fish), Taco Donkey, Frank Royster, and Sara Cole and the Hawkes. The gig is sponsored and catered by Piggly Wiggly. The nearby Tides Folly Beach hotel will be offering special rates for the night as well. Admission is a $10 donation or an unwrapped toy. All proceeds benefit the Toys for Tots organization.
