The Breeze Band History

"A Beach Music Treasure"

On July 4, 1980, a group of talented musicians from eastern North Carolina set out on a journey that would ultimately take them throughout the Southeastern United States, gain them thousands of devoted fans, see them inducted into the Beach Music Hall of Fame, earning 5 CAMMY Awards and establish them as one of beach music’s all-time best—The Breeze Band.

Classic beach music hits like “You’ve Got to Forget Him”; “Lovers Holiday”, “Let’s Get Away”; and “Baby Girl” are still among the most requested songs on beach music radio and The Breeze Band's live performances.

           

The band went from “thumping” eastern North Carolina to a seventeen year stint in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area. During this time, The Breeze Band dominated the beach music scene like no other. The untimely death of the band’s legendary singer, Dink Perry, almost silenced The Breeze Band and left a huge void in beach music. With the encouragement of Dink’s family, former band members, other beach music groups and countless fans, a group of original Breeze Band members resurrected the “brand” and sound that helped make Dink Perry and The Breeze Band a beach music treasure and “brings it back” to where it all began – eastern North Carolina.

The Breeze Band’s signature sound, featuring tight vocal harmonies, polished brass and rhythm sections, along with state-of-the-art sight and sound system enables them to perform a varied list of well-known and original songs from genres including beach, soul, R&B, and the classics. Their specialty includes private parties, wedding receptions, festivals, corporate and other special events.
