It’s all about a good time! The Sand Band is a six-piece dance & show band, performing your favorite hits from a variety of musical genres.
A little about Terri Gore: When your first public appearance is at age 5 and the backing band is the legendary Joe Pope & the Tams, and your father is Jackie Gore, the man known as the “Father of Beach Music,” it is almost certain that your destiny is to become the all-time most popular and recognized female vocalist in the Carolinas.Known throughout the world as the “Original Carolina Girl,” Terri possesses a rare vocal ability that distinguishes her both as a top performer and recording artist.
Terri has been awarded 8 CAMMY Awards. She was voted Female Vocalist of the Year 5 consecutive times from 1996 to 2000. Terri has won two “Solo Album of the Year” awards for both her “Carolina Girl” and “It Don’t Get Better Than This” CDs on Forevermore Records. Terri has recorded with artists such as the Embers, Russell Thompkins, Jr. & The Stylistics, Jay & the Techniques, Danny & the Juniors, Softones, Legendary Dukes, Jim Quick, the Catalinas, the Holiday Band, General Johnson and the Chairmen of the Board and Jackie Gore and the Legends of Beach. In 2003, Terri was the first female vocalist in the Carolinas to score two songs on the All-Time Carolina Top 40 Christmas Chart with two original songs “All Around The World” and “Carolina Christmas.”
In 2003, General Johnson and Surfside Records Terri signed Terri to a one-song deal, the first female vocalist ever for the label, and recorded the beach music hit “Sugar Daddy,” on the Surfside release “Beach Music Mermaids.”
In 2009, Terri’s song “Ten Kisses,” part of the Forevermore compilation “Summer Soultice,” stayed 13 weeks in the number one position making it the longest held number one song by a female artist for the decade.
