The Craig Woolard Band
MEET THE BAND…
The Craig Woolard Band wows their audience with one of the most diverse repertoires and original crowd participation shows in the industry. It is no wonder they have become one of the most highly recommended and sought after bands for Weddings and Private Parties, Corporate events, Concerts, and Festivals all over the southeastern United States.
Woolard’s classy and riveting stage presence offers audiences non -stop entertainment. With his distinctive vocal style, he continually delivers the tunes just the way the crowd loves them.
And what soul!!! You WILL be amazed at this man!
As for Woolard’s new band, The Craig Woolard Band, they are the “hottest band this side of the Mississippi!” Their first year out in 2005, they were honored as ‘GROUP OF THE YEAR”, while Craig and the band walked away with ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR, MALE VOCALIST, BEST SMOOTHIE, and SONG OF THE YEAR. The band is always energetic, spontaneous and fresh!
Their arrangements are exciting and ever so danceable. Of course, The Craig Woolard Band is the master of SOUL, MOTOWN, & BEACH MUSIC, but the band also does a vast variety of music to include R&B, CLASSIC ROCK, a little COUNTRY, and ROCK & ROLL, Songs from the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s, TOP 40, plus Party and Dance Music - from THE TEMPATIONS to THE FOUR TOPS, ROD STEWART to JOURNEY, RAY CHARLES & OTIS REDDING, SAM COOK to MICHAEL BLUBLE, RAY LAMONTANGE to BLACK EYE PEAS – all ages and all styles can be covered; from 2- 92, they all love him!
All shows with THE CRAIG WOOLARD BAND are 100% live – LIVE MUSICIANS playing WITHOUT the aid of backing vocal tracks, MIDI sequencing or pre-recorded music tracks. CWB is one of the few bands in the area that is comprised of highly skilled and multi-talented musicians who have a passion for all styles of music, but more importantly, are ABLE to bring awesome LIVE TALENT to every performance.
But what really separates The CWB from other Carolina-based “beach” groups?
The phenomenal front man, Craig Woolard, that’s what!
Craig is, without a doubt, recognized as one of the finest singer-entertainers to ever hit the stage. Craig constantly works the crowd with his witty personality, relentless energy, unique finesse, and powerful voice. His ability to read the audience and give them just what they want is unsurpassed.
“Craig Woolard has raised the bar for performers – You know you have been entertained when the crowd begs for more!” Peter Carpenter, CBMA President
And now he can bring his incredible showmanship to YOUR event!

“What you WANT is what you GET with The Craig Woolard Band”!
But, What IS Beach Music? (according to Craig)
For me, and many musicians in this area, it is a living (most of the time)! But seriously, what is beach music? Ummm….. It’s the music that when you hear it, you immediately recognize it – it makes you want to get up and dance! It’s that feel-good music that makes you want to forget about all your problems and just have a good time. It’s a party! And for those of us lucky enough to have grown up with beach music, it’s a memory – that special time and special someone you met at the beach…It’s the music you heard on the jukebox at the Jolly Knave or by one of the many bands at OD in Myrtle Beach and The Pavilion. It’s the music that takes us back to the good times when things were simple.
The bands may have changed a little, some of the clubs are gone, but the music is still here. It’s a collection of R&B, Soul, a little disco, or even some R&R – basically, if you can shag to it, it’s Beach Music!!!
Many see it as a local phenomenon, something uniquely Southern, and maybe even a little Carolinian – Beach Music is OURS!
“Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here, we might as well dance!”
Hope you enjoy the music – see you on the dance floor!
