June – August 2013
Tickets are $7 at the door, or $6 if you purchase early at Donnie’s or from any of the Veteran’s Day committee members.
|This band is centered around the guitar of Teddy Steele whose style reflects some of his many influences such as Billy Gibbons and Eric Clapton. Steele knows when to slow it down and when to burn the house down. He has been a well-known figure in the blues scene of Southwest Virginia and has also played The White Mountain Boogie and Blues Fest as well as the Cincinnati Blues fest with Deborah Coleman and Albert Cummings. Teddy is accompanied by vocalist Rebecca Tinsley whose style and influences are among Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi. Along with the talented rhythm section of George Bowen (sax, slide guitar, harmonica), Tom Pridgen (drums) and Ashley Steele (bass) you have a band that you will want to see time and time again.

Concert Series – The Carolina beach music tradition includes soul, R&B, disco, blues, boogie and memorable oldies songs. Along with our versions of Carolina beach music favorites we mix in selected pop, party and even a few country music titles. For entertaining music spiced up with humor and variety The Beach Nite Band delivers. All three Beach Nite Band performers as well as our sound engineer are privileged to have been long time members of The Collegians. While neither we nor anyone else could replace The Collegians, we hope to honor and extend the musical and entertainment traditions forged by this outstanding band.
