Carolina Beach Battle of the Bands

I think it was really great having music on the beach. My family really enjoyed the Band Redemption! My teenage daughters thought they were really cute. We think you should have this type of Entertainment more often. Reggae Rock is the BEST. We want to see more of Redemption. Where can we find these guys?
