The Band Oz is one of the top beach music bands on the Coastal Southeast.
The Band of Oz was formed in 1967 as a part-time band playing fraternity parties and high school proms all over the South. In 1977 the band went on the road full time. Since that time the band has made an exceptional name for itself throughout the Southeast by playing the top clubs and corporate parties, and getting excellent reviews along the way. For several years the group has been a guest on most of the major beach concerts in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia. The band now features a full horn section to total a dynamic eight-member group. They still perform well over two-hundred shows per year.
