A different kind of party is hitting the waves this Saturday, and not just the airwaves.
The inaugural T&A Carolina Boat Bash, sponsored by Wave 104.1’s morning show “T&A with Tommy and Korby,” brings the airwaves, music waves and beach waves together for a day of music, boating and fun in the sun.
More than 1,200 boaters are expected near Bird Island at the Little River Inlet starting at 11 a.m. Power Born Rebellion, Cornbread, and Driven Astray are the local bands performing in sets — on a floating stage — until 6 p.m. with a disc jockey filling in between sets so the fun doesn’t stop.
As the website www.Wave104.com says: go “by boat, jet ski, tube, noodle ... just get there.”
Not ready for summer to end? You’re in luck.
House of Blues is hosting Endless Summer: Bands Brews & BBQ, an evening full of summer vibes featuring breweries, bands and barbecue! The event will feature craft breweries from the Southeast region as well as local musicians and national touring band Your Girlfriend. Doors to the event open at 5 p.m. on Aug. 15.
Admission to the event is free for all ages but those ages 21 and up with a valid ID who wish to sample beer can purchase a $20 tasting wristband at the door and receive a complementary souvenir tasting glass. This wristband will allow the guest access to both The Deck and the Music Hall for the event.
The following breweries will be in attendance offering samples of their amazing craft brews:
▪ Big Boss
▪ Blowing Rock
▪ Duck Rabbit
▪ Natty Greene’s
▪ Green Man
▪ Oskar Blues
▪ Red Hare
▪ Small Town Brewing
Live music will be performed by Your Girlfriend in the Music Hall and a range of local artists will take The Deck stage. The Deck features cabanas, fire-pits, corn-hole and more.
Barbecue treats will be available in the Music Hall and on The Deck for purchase such as house-made barbecue sliders, barbecue chicken wings, barbecue ribs and more.
