Who was in the band ? That depends. When are you talking about 1964 or 1984 or maybe even 2004 or even last Saturday night. We tried to accumulate as much of this information as possible. Julian Fowler accumulated many names of the members of band from the Carolinas and others helped with other states.

The listing of members of various bands can be found at We will be doing a major overhaul of the listings in February when corrections and additions will be made, Captain Craig will do an encore performance as he helps us make all the updates.

Many of the bands that were featured in the book still have a version of the band still playing today with varying numbers of band members from the 1960s aka “The Hey Baby Days of Beach Music." Many more of the bands have periodic reunions when members from all decades show up to play. Any of the musicians included in the book that are still playing today were inducted into a special club that we refer to as The Never Gonna Give It Up Club. We broke it down in that section of the book first listing bands still playing under the same name with at least one member from their 60s band. We then included other bands or performers still performing but not necessarily in their original band from the Hey Baby Days. We have also referred to this part of The Hey Baby Days project as “a work in process”; it is still in process. So check out our directories and let us know who was left out that was in the band. We will be adding other bands and other directories as well.

Want to know where and what members of the Hey Baby Days bands are doing now ? Check out the directories. If we don’t have the answer, check back at the end of February when the directories have been updated.
