Win Three Dog Night Tickets

Returning to the Alabama Theatre, the legendary THREE DOG NIGHT. Now in its 5th decade, claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than THREE DOG NIGHT. THREE DOG NIGHT hits weave through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures -- songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come)”, “Joy to the World”, “Black and White”, “Shambala” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize THREE DOG NIGHT’s continuing popularity.


This Grammy-nominated band is not content resting on its legacy alone. Always working to expand its audience, THREE DOG NIGHT has embraced and been embraced by 21st century music technology.  New and existing fans buy THREE DOG NIGHT’s music on iTunes as well as at record stores.  In fact, releases from this decade alone have sold well over a million copies. THREE DOG NIGHT maintains an aggressive, year-round touring schedule of over 70 dates a year.   The hit filled concerts are performed for generation-spanning audiences by Danny Hutton (founder/lead vocalist) and Michael Allsup (guitar) with Paul Kingery (bass/vocals), Pat Bautz (drums),) David Morgan (vocals) and Howard Lavarea (keyboards).


The band’s now-famous name refers to native Australian hunters in the outback who huddled with their dogs for warmth on cold nights; the coldest being a “three dog night”. Now, marking 50 years on the road, THREE DOG NIGHT continues to grow its fan base by keeping up a full schedule of concerts at theatres, performing arts centers, fairs, festivals, corporate events, and casinos. Since 1986, the band has performed over 2,500 shows including two Super Bowls. You don’t want to miss this concert, April 29th 2023.

The Platters, The Drifters and the Coasters at the Alabama Theater

The Platters were one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era with 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including four no.1 hits. Enjoy songs such as "The Great Pretender", "Twilight Time", "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", "My Prayer" and "Only You".


The legend of Clyde McPhatter’s Drifters continues today with the founder's son, Ronn David McPhatter. Together they perform all of The Drifters' biggest songs, “Under the Boardwalk”, “This Magic Moment”, “Up on the Roof”, “Save The Last Dance for Me” and more music loved by generations.


The Coasters are an American rhythm and blues/rock and roll vocal group that had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo-wop, their records were so frequently imitated that they became an important part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s. They became known as the "Clown Princes of Rock N Roll" for their humorous rock and roll songs with a solid rhythm and blues underpinning. You'll hear their hits like "Yakety Yak", "Charlie Brown", "Searchin'" and "Young Blood".

SOS Spring Safari

Check out the schedule of events here


Here is more information about the Spring Safari...


Each year at the end of April the coming of Spring is celebrated by thousands of shaggers from all along the east coast. They hit the road in search of wild life. Their destination is the famous little strip of sand known as the Grand Strand. After the long Winter, shaggers are eager for the first outing of the Summer. They find it at the SOS Spring Safari.

For 10 days the biggest adult party on the East Coast crashes into North Myrtle Beach like an ocean wave. A wide variety of activities is scheduled for the event. Many member clubs of the ACSC will schedule "tea parties" in the local lounges. The lounges themselves schedule special parties during the Safari. Popular bands show up along Main Street playing crowd favorites. Shag dance instructors will offer classes to the masses who are seeking to improve their skill or increase their repertoire of moves.

But the big attraction is the night life. As the sun goes down the animals of the Safari come out to play in the clubs along Main Street & OD. Old friends will seek each other out & new friends will be made. The night will be spent shag dancing to timeless music that moves the soul.

On the last Saturday of SOS everyone meets on Main Street for the perennial favorite parade of the year, the ACSC Club's Parade. ACSC member clubs plan, design, & build parade floats for fun & a chance to win one of the coveted awards. There are award categories for best shag theme & most original float. The Spring Safari Parade always draws a huge crowd. Not only will the shaggers be out in force, but the beach locals stream to the streets for an afternoon of fun & laughter!

An evening filled with the classic sounds of the 50's and 60's.  Everyone looks forward to seeing this show.  It's one of my favorites! The Coasters perform a string of hits that contain humorous material we all remember.


The Platters have never stopped performing and selling out wherever they go.  The Platters recorded just under 400 songs and have sold over 80 million records.


The Drifters linked 50's rhythm & blues with 60's soul music.  They epitomized the vocal group sound of New York City.  Theirs was the sweet but streetwise sound of R&B with the right blend of gospel influences.
