Alive After Five

Concert Series


Over 25 years in the making, Jim Quick and Coastline, like their namesake the Atlantic Coastline Railroad, have been traveling the "tracks" of the southeast, and connecting with the hearts of loyal "Coastline Crazies." Pulling from the threads of Soul, Blues, R&B, and Americana, Jim Quick and Coastline weave together their own genre of music known as Swamp Soul. Delivered with precision by front man Jim Quick and his band, this group captures the true, honest spirit of traditions born and bred in the small southern towns of America. 

These five musicians, whose talents have landed them numerous awards in the industry, bring this indigenous music to life in the most genuine way possible. Quick explained it best when he said “I want my music to be a bridge for many genres; a place where traditional and contemporary music can unite. But, I do love the pure emotion and simple-yet-deep concepts of roots music. I’m a Southern boy and it all hits home; the lyrics and heart of the music, from the melodies to chord progressions, it all seems to strike an ancestral nerve with me.” The band currently maintains an average of 250 tour dates per year, with an ever-growing fan base that is as diverse as the music of the band itself.
 

In 1980, THE ENTERTAINERS scored their first regional smash hit with LIVING FOR THE SUMMER, a song that propelled the group to the forefront of beach music, which led to The Entertainers playing the finest clubs along the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, and in clubs and music festivals from Virginia to Florida.  During the Third Annual Beach Music Awards in 1988, THE ENTERTAINERS were nominated for both the Group of the Year and Single of the Year. The group's second album, DON'T LET YOUR LOVE GROW COLD, won Album of the Year honors. 


In 1991, after sixteen years with the Catalinas and eleven years with the Embers, Johnny Barker, (Keyboard and Vocals) became a partner with Earl Dawkins as co-owner of the group. Barker, a noted musician and writer in the beach music industry, lists credits such as: Love Me, Always In Love, Facts of Love, and the fourth most popular beach music song of all time, Summertime's Calling Me, a song that spawned a new generation of beach music dance styles and tempo changes.  Ear Dawkins, the founder of The Entertainers, as well as lead singer/front man, co-wrote the group’s first regional hit, "Livin for The Summer." Dawkins also appeared as a Male Vocalist contestant in 1985 on "Star Search."


Other band members include: Beaver Robinette, (Sax and Vocals) who is a graduate of Appalachian State University with a degree in music. Beaver also plays trumpet and flute and teaches in the North Carolina school system. His energy and soulful sax solos are always present; Eddie Brooks (Drums, Vocals) has been singing and playing drums for well over twenty years. With strong vocals, an easy to dance to beat, and spectacular solo ability Brooks is easily set apart from the rest; and rounding out this powerhouse group is Benjie Weaver (Guitar & Vocals) whose guitar playing, unique vocal talents, and friendly stage presence make him one of the most popular musicians around.
