Description:
The Mountain Valley Charitable Foundation presents the August 2018 OldTown Nights concert series featuring The Tams on Thursday, August 16, 2018 at the Old Town Fields in Shawsville, VA.

Join us for live music, food and fun for your entire family! The monthly event will include local food trucks, craft beer and a wonderful space for the kids to run and play.

The Tams have been entertaining and thrilling audiences for over 50 years! Known for such hits as "Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy", "What Kind of Fool", "I've Been Hurt" and "Untie Me #12 on the R&B Charts", The Tams have had several Gold Records, and one Platinum Single. "What Kind of Fool" hit #9 on the Billboard charts, and #6 on the R&B charts. "Hey Girl Don't Bother Me" hit #1 in the UK in 1971. While "Be Young, Be Foolish" only hit #26 on the Top 40, the single sold over 1,000,000 copies, sending it to Platinum status.

In 1986, "Ain't Nothin Like Shaggin'" hit #6 in UK Billboard charts, before being banned due to the UK's definition of "shag". Though their style of music has historically been referred to as Beach Music which they have had many beach music hits, it can be also classified as a mixture of smooth soul, and R&B. Their show is fun, fresh and exciting and appeals to audiences of all ages and musical tastes.

Well known in The Carolina's for their signature "Beach Music" sound, The Tams travel all over the country, frequenting the Southeast, and up & down the East Coast. They have also performed in the Midwest and United Kingdom. The "Mighty" Tams have been elected into the Beach Music Hall of Fame, the Georgia Hall of Fame and the Atlanta Music Hall of Fame. They have also been named "Beach Band of the Decade".
