Best Beach Music Bands/Artists

To many, beach music evokes images of the endless summer, surfing and all things from the California coast from the 1960s. However, this isn't exactly quite what beach music is, and you may be confusing it with surf music, which includes surf rock and the like. Beach music is, and it could get confusing by sheer definition,  the name given to rock, soul, and R&B songs that have retained popularity along the Carolina coast, and not California. Good beach music could also refer to light, melodic, and romantic soul-pop records of the 1960s (see its still the same era). So, these vintage sounds is what comprises beach music and not groups like the Beach Boys and Jimmy Buffett.

So, now that beach music is defined, what are the best beach music bands? Betty Everett, Jackie Wilson, Chairmen of the Board and The Foundations are among the best beach music artists. Good beach music can live on in particular locals' folklore. Again, these groups have generally been associated with great beach music.

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best beach music bands. If you think any good beach music bands are missing from this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best beach music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest beach music musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular beach music bands that you might've heard of. (13 items)
