November is here and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. The Sales Executives at The Trembley Group Real Estate are fortunate to be year-round residents of the Myrtle Beach area. Those folks fortunate enough to be year-round residents, seasonal residents, or regular fall-get-away visitors know that there’s not a more special place and time than Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand in November.
Sometimes life’s greatest gifts are free like a time-tested stroll on a Grand Strand beach even (or especially) at night. In fact, many prefer November’s mild temperatures to summer’s sometimes muggy weather. Something about the sounds of the crashing waves and the cool waters of the surf on your feet creates the perfect mood. But if a social afternoon or night out on the town is more to your taste, November offers some exciting and interesting activities.

Alabama Theatre, 4750 U.S. 17 S., North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
Events, performances, and dance contests held throughout the weekend.
Before there was Rock & Roll, there was Beach Music. And it only makes sense that the birthplace of the genre would host the award show that recognizes the performers, producers, writers, and industry leaders that continue to keep the genre alive. The awards will take plan Nov. 12 at Alabama Theatre.
The awards show is the culmination of a weekend-long celebration of beach music with performances throughout beach clubs around the Strand. The mission of the awards is to promote Carolina Beach Music and honor both current artists and pioneers of the field.
The celebration of the CBMA Awards (originally called the Cammys for Carolina’s Magic Music Years) began in 1995 as an exciting party of performers and fans of Carolina Beach Music. Fourteen bands entertained at the first awards show held in Salisbury, NC. Those in attendance will never forget the memorable event.
Charlotte, NC was home to the CBMAs for the next two years as the awards show continued to grow in size, scope, and quality.
In 1998 the CBMAs moved to North Myrtle Beach, SC and the CBMA Weekend was born.
During this festive weekend, entertainers perform at various beach clubs on both Friday and Saturday nights. A “Band Fair” is held prior to the awards show on Sunday afternoon and an amateur shag contest will be held Friday, November 10 at 3:00 P.M. Follow this link for an entry form.
The mission of the CBMA Awards is to promote Carolina Beach Music, its influences and offshoots and the unique Carolina lifestyle by the presentation of a first class awards show that originates each November in North Myrtle Beach, SC. The show honors winners in various categories and remembers the pioneers who originated this music and helped make it great. Those honored are performers, songwriters, radio personalities, mobile DJ’s, dancers, producers, engineers, promoters and others who have been integrally involved with the music’s success. The further overall purpose is to keep this music alive by getting young people involved in this fun yet clean-cut music, to give the music its deserved recognition, respect, and credibility, and to bring diverse people together in an upbeat harmonious manner.
The CBMA Awards have become an icon of Carolina Beach Music and the home of this southern tradition.
