Beach Music is a style of music that incorporates rhythm and blues (R&B), pop, soul, and maybe even a little bit of rock and disco. Originating in the Carolinas, it is also known as Carolina Beach Music, Shag Music, or Beach & Shag. It is mostly associated with the official dance of North Carolina and South Carolina, the Carolina Shag, a style of swing dance. This genre of music and dance originated around 1946, experienced a transition in the 60s and 70s, and experienced a resurgence in the 1980s. Today, new, original beach music is still produced and enjoyed, particularly in the coastal regions of Southeastern U.S.
