The Cheraw Arts Commission is presenting the “Endless Summer … Forever Young Concert” featuring Charleston-based The Explorers Club band on Friday, Sept. 28, at the Theatre on the Green in Cheraw, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
The pop rock band performs both original and classic pop/rock songs. Their original music is almost entirely influenced by the vocal harmony stylings of the Beach Boys and The Association with arrangements reminiscent of Phil Spector, Chuck Berry, The Beatles, The Zombies and The Byrds. The Explorers Club’s music has been featured on TV shows that include “The O.C.,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and “Bored to Death.” Most recently, the group has shared the stage with Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere & the Raiders fame. Head Explorer Jason Brewer describes the goal of the music “is to bring joy, reflect images and most of all, entertain.”
Single tickets are $10 with 2 tickets at $18. Advance tickets are available at the Cheraw Community Center, 200 Powe St., Cheraw. For information contact the Cheraw Arts Commission by calling 843-537-8420, ext. 12.
So, put on your Huarache sandals and tropical beach attire and join us at the Theatre on the Green on Sept. 28, advises the arts commission. The Cheraw Arts Commission is supported by the United Way of Chesterfield County and the SC Arts Commission which receives funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Explorers Club was formed in Charleston in 2005. The group signed with indie record label Dead Oceans in June 2007 and released their debut album in 2008. Their first single, “Do You Love Me?”, was released in April of that year. Several members of The Explorers Club were previously in a band called 1984. To promote the February 2012 release of “Grand Hotel,” the band released three free EPs called “suites,” each containing a cover and two rough mixes of tracks set to appear on the album. The final mixes for the album were done by Mark Linett, who is known for his work with The Beach Boys.
