The Beach Music Festival erupts into a lively celebration as four bands take to Norris Creek's wooden, open-air stage, where they direct their energetic ditties toward festival-goers boogying on an emerald expanse of grass. The Embers, a sextet known for its soulful spin on beach music, jump-starts the day's auditory extravaganza with the same blend of rhythm, blues, and soul it used to charm presidents, armed forces, and surf-shop mannequins around the world. Craig Woolard of The Craig Woolard Band draws comparisons to Huey Lewis with his soaring, silky smooth voice, as his charismatic stage presence prompts audiences to move their feet to his infectious tunes. Winner of the 2009 CBMA Award for Favorite New Artist, Hip Pocket infuses its signature swagger into covers of time-tested jangles, including The O'Jays' "Love Train" and Wilson Picket's "Mustang Sally." Seaside Band draws the festival to its crowd-pleasing finale, commanding an army of saxophones, trombones, and trumpets in its renditions of classic tunes from The Dominoes and other '50s groups.
