The Castaways on Thursday, September 15 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the Clayton Town Square, 100 W Main Street in downtown.
This is the Castaways first appearance in Clayton and are the premier party band in the Carolinas and Virginia. From it's beginning in Durham, NC in 1961, The Castaways have been pleasing audiences with their unique flavor of Beach, Soul, and Rock N' Roll for generations of fans. But don't let the fact that the band has been around for fifty years fool you. High energy, current songs, and fun on stage will bring a party to all age groups! The Castaways original music can be heard on Beach Music radio shows throughout the southeast. As artists on the KHP Music label, their CD’s entitled "Generation Six" and "Give It Up" have received great reviews as they have showcased the variety of vocal styles and song selections that The Castaways can offer.
