FOR MORE INFO & QUOTES ON ANY ACT:
“THE PARTY BAND OF THE SOUTH”
Tradition is defined as “The handing down of a belief, legend or custom from generation to generation”. The Swingin’ Medallions, a 46-year Southern tradition, are a living definition of the word. How does a band endure the generations? The group’s signature high-energy style delights audiences of all ages. Their act, as well as their music, is indeed timeless. The group was founded in 1962 by John McElrath which has been carried on by his two sons and the modern day 8 piece version of the Medallions! Featuring an ever-popular horn section, the group effectively blends the sounds and music of yesterday and today. The band has performed throughout the nation in thousands of venues. Their diverse repertoire has made them overwhelming favorites with college audiences as well as the more mature rock and rollers.
The band was made famous by its 1966 single, “Double Shot of My Baby’s Love”. It remains the signature song of the band. The song, in fact, continues to demonstrate its timeless quality on radio, television and in motion pictures. “Double Shot” was followed with another hit, “She Drives Me Out of My Mind”, in 1967. In 1969, they released yet another hit, “Hey, Hey Baby”, the song featured at their 2004 Gator Bowl Half-Time Show performance.
Bruce Springsteen labeled “Double Shot” “The greatest fraternity rock song of all time” and opened with it at his August 2008 Charleston, S.C. concert.
Lewis Grizzard (Southern humorist and writer) labeled the Medallions as
“THE PARTY BAND OF THE SOUTH”, a moniker that has become forever synonymous with the Medallion name. In 1993, Grizzard wrote in a nationally syndicated column, “Even today, when I hear “Double Shot of My Baby’s Love”, it makes me want to stand outside in the hot sun with a milkshake cup full of beer in one hand, and a slightly drenched coed in the other”.

Raised in a musical family, Bradley and Brandon Parks would have no shortage of inspiration growing up.
Bradley, brought up on the music of Prince, Sam and Dave, and Waylon Jennings knew at an early age he would eventually be involved in the "family business”. Working with his Grandfather and Uncle, both seasoned vocalists and multi instrumentalists, Bradley soon picked up the acoustic guitar and began singing and playing with the family band. For years Bradley honed his talents playing bars, clubs, and weddings, deciding in the summer of 2009 to break off on his own before moving from Florida to Charlotte.
Meanwhile Bradley's younger brother Brandon was coming into his own as a musician. Regarded as one of the most talented drummers his age, Brandon had been playing since he was 5 years old. He draws his inspiration from fellow drummers Travis Barker, Buddy Rich, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, and Tony Royster Jr.

To hear it, you might think you just stepped into Motown. To breathe it, you smell a tropical breeze. To feel it, you let the rhythm grasp your body and whirl it into motion. To see it, is like an extravaganza of light and energy. But to experience it, you must say it …. “I want THE TAMS”!!
The Tams were formed in Atlanta, GA in 1962. It’s members were Joseph Pope and Charles Pope (founders), Horace Key, Floyd Ashton, and Robert Lee Smith. In the beginning, they sang and danced as a way of having fun and to escape their circumstances, hoping to make at least a little money. The group began performing in local night spots for $1.25 each. These small wages only allowed for them to purchase matching Tam O’shanter hats to wear while on stage. From this trademark, the legendary Tams name was born. The Tams hard work, patience and perseverance eventually paid off when they were signed to Arlan records and had their first Billboard hit in 1962, the single “Untie Me”, which was number 12 on the R&B chart. In 1963, ABC Records signed them and their first album produced a Top Ten hit, “What Kind of Fool”. They began playing throughout the country and a string of hits followed. These included “Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy”, “I’ve Been Hurt” and “Hey Girl”. Since then, they have released over 15 albums and been honored with one Platinum and two Gold records. They have toured and recorded with Jimmy Buffet and performed with such greats as Gladys Knight, Jackie Wilson and many more. They have received the title “Beach Band of the Decade” and have been inducted into the Georgia Hall of Fame, the Atlanta Hall of Fame and the Beach Music Hall of Fame. The Tams are still recording today and have recently released their latest singles “My Main Squeeze” and “This Love Will Last” from their newest CD The Tams Comin’ At Cha’.
The current members include Charles Pope, his son Li’l Redd, Joe Jones, Robert Arnold and Reginald Preston. Despite the unfortunate passing of “The Legendary Joe Pope”, The Tams have continued to be as popular as ever. Forty two years after the group’s formation, Charles and Li’l Redd continue to lead The Tams toward success. Fans clamor to see Charles Pope – Living Legend, and Li’l Redd – Fastest Feet in the South! And with a new generation of “Little Tams” coming along, Charles puts it best when he says “The Tams will NEVER die” !!
