The Shag Clubs That Carry Forward Carolina Beach Music


The Raleigh Shag Club meets on the second Sunday of each month at TJs Nightlife in Raleigh. The new president of the club is Barbara Fields who follows in the footsteps of Clark Jones who led the club for the last two years. In addition to it’s devotion to the dance this club is very involved in community work and events. Their award winning Beach Music Event, Cabin Fever Throwdown, is in it’s 10th year with proceeds going to Transitions LifeCare, formerly Hospice of Wake County. Cabin Fever was started by David Hicks of The Band of Oz in memory of his brothers, George Thomas and Cary Hicks, who died from cancer and is sponsored by The R A Jefferies Distributing Co. It is held each year, during the winter, and has raised thousands of dollars over these ten years. In 2015, The Raleigh Shag Club won the coveted Carolina Beach Music Award for the Best Shag Club Event of the Year. On February 14 this event will be held at The Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center, 4700 Emperor Blvd (RTP) in Durham, NC. – featuring The Band of Oz, Jim Quick and Coastline, The Fantastic Shakers and The Embers, featuring Craig Woolard.
