The Band of Oz was formed in 1967 as a part-time band playing fraternity parties and high school proms all over the South. In 1977 the band went on the road full time. Since that time the band has made an exceptional name for itself throughout the Southeast by playing the top clubs and corporate parties, and getting excellent reviews along the way. For several years the group has been a guest on most of the major beach concerts in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia.

The Band of Oz is one of the most successful groups in the Southeast, and continues to get the very best reviews from the top people in the entertainment business. The band now features a full horn section to total a dynamic eight-member group. They still perform well over two-hundred shows per year for corporate events, festivals, concerts, wedding receptions, and many other public and private events.

After more than two decades of bringing audiences to their feet, the band LIQUID PLEASURE, has become a multi-cultural icon. Even from the beginning and through the present, LIQUID PLEASURE has never desired to follow the dream path of most bands. That is, being a major recording entity. Sometimes when they are traveling on the road, the guys get in a nostalgic mood, remembering the times past. “When we were still playing the college circuit heavily, with groups like Hootie and The Blowfish and REM,. The Spinners were even scheduled to warm up for us once”, said veteran member, Melvin Farrington. Although, in 1981, when they did record an album, the band immediately focused back on what had been their mainstay from the beginning, the dance and show circuit.

There are many bands or groups touring today yet few that are considered a musical institution. The Embers, considered “The Heart and Soul of Beach Music," have solidified their position as a thriving musical entity and have left their mark on listeners for decades. 

The Embers boast numerous albums and single releases that span decades and all the crazes continuing to exhibit top quality showmanship, musicianship and professionalism. Having been inducted into the South Carolina Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame and most recently the South Carolina Beach Music Hall of Fame, The Embers are honored to carry the moniker of North Carolina’s Official Ambassadors of Music.

The Embers are widely considered a musical MARVEL and have laid the groundwork for what has become known as ‘Beach Music’ in the Carolinas, Virginias, the gulf coast region of North America and every beach in between. A true musical tradition with which many Americans have grown. The Embers consider the genre of Beach Music as “music with a memory” and have been creating lasting memories since its inception in 1958. Simply put – Heart and Soul, Rhythm and Blues, Feel Good Music.
