Before moving here, I visited NMB for years. I am a big Carolina Beach Music fan and work with many of the biggest groups and event promoters, so you may see quite a bit of information about that industry here. There is a lot of opinions about how it got started, I will side with the folks that say North Myrtle Beach started beach music and the Shag Dance. Wherever it started…I glad that it settled here in North Myrtle Beach, SC.
