Ken Knox, leader of the group continues the legacy of the band which was founded by General Johnson in 1967. Their classic hits such as “Carolina Girls”, “Give Me Just a Little More Time”, and “Patches” are some of the greatest hits of the 70’s and still have that same groovy care-free sound today.

The Catalinas: The Catalinas were inducted into the NC Music Hall of Fame in 2013. The group still continues today as one of North Carolina’s premier beach music bands. “Summer Time’s Calling Me” is the anthem of the group’s fun-time sound.
