As the author of the "Beach music" article, I'm very interested in any and all comments -- especially with those who wish to contribute in some way to the article. Also, I've noted the "needs to be cleaned up" message, and am seeking to comply. Any assistance in that endeavor, or clarification of what is needed, would be greatly appreciated. I do generally understand the formatting that is necessary. For the person who tagged the article, can you please give me some specifics on where I can make improvements?

Another question I have is exactly how the synication or distribution of articles is done. For example, in web searches, I've found this article and all of the articels linked from it on an "algebra help" site, with most of the linked articles on the "cool encyclopedia" site. Can I put the article in its entirity on my own website, and if so where do I find a tutorial on how to do this?

Found more info on this. For now, I have put the article on my site here: O.D. JUKE: Beach Music Defined [1] Any comments would be welcome

Made several changes today, hopefully it is more in keeping with the standards of Wikipedia.

I'm taking the article off my site until I can find out more about how to make sure the links stay linked correctly, etc.

Modern Beach/shag scene[edit]

This is a pretty good article. It would be great to mention the revival of beach music/shagging among young people. People on college campus throughout the southeast coast are dancing to beach music again. I go to school at USC, and I can tell you that the shag classes fill up on the first day of registration.

Artists of Note?[edit]

Is there some scientific reason for having "Band of Oz" on the Artists of Note section, and then having "The Band of Oz" again a little lower? Are there two Bands of Oz? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:34, 6 April 2014 (UTC) No, no reason at all. There's only one Band of Oz (and yes, "Over the Rainbow" is the group's theme song).

Standard of article[edit]

Actually, it is a pretty bad article - full of opinions and short of even a single reference to substaniate any of the text therein. To answer some of the points above, please refer to Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, Wikipedia:Verifiability, and Wikipedia:Citing sources. Perhaps Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not would also be a useful starting point. Thanks,

The article fails to differentiate why or how "Beach Music" is different than the same music played and danced to at some other beach or a club or party, anywhere in the U.S. or the world, for that matter. The artists seem very familiar and most of them are big enough performers that their "B" sides would be well-known. It seems kind of muddled in general. And certainly it requires huge amounts of referencing and substantiation. Yesterdays Wine (talk) 02:57, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Maybe this "Top 100 Beach Music Records" listing will help to clear up some of the confusion: As you can see, there are certainly a number of big national hits on this list. But most of the titles are either by regional artists or else are semi-obscure recordings that are likely to be virtually unknown outside of eastern Virginia and the Carolinas.

Closer to jazz or blues or reggae?[edit]

So it's beach music. But can you mention any opinion from any music critic/musician where exactly the area of beach music? -- Yandri (talk) 07:58, 2 August 2010 (UTC) Actually closer to blues, mostly traditional R&B, but more recently with an influence of contemporary country music as well. The geographical area is mostly from coastal Virginia through the Carolinas and into Georgia (with the "Grand Strand" area that includes Myrtle Beach being the epicenter).

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 00:06, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Beach Pop & Surf Rock.[edit]

What's the difference? There's a page for both. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:41, 29 July 2013 (UTC) A big geographical, as well as stylistic, difference. Surf music ( or surf rock )is a southern California style characterized by electric guitar leads, and sometimes vocal harmonies. Beach music (or beach pop ) is an uptempo variety of R&B that is the favored dance music at the East Coast beaches in Virginia and the Carolinas. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:18, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
