In less than 1 month, we will see who the CBMA has selected as their 2017  Group of the Year. Along with the group award, there are many categories recognized on November 11th and 12th in North Myrtle Beach. The Chart on this page is not measured by any kind of voting or nominations. I posted this chart weekly back in 2015, but have been focused on other things since and let it go.  I may do this some more if there is enough interest. People seem to like rankings.

Below is the  report of Top Beach Music Bands (based on clicks). I decided to start it up again and see what the fans and friends of beach music think. Remember it is based on clicks, it is not my opinion and not any indication on who I think is better or deserves to rank higher. It is simply based on stats.

Based on stats week ending October 18th, 2017, here is the top 20 Beach Music Artists clicked on at

Thanks for supporting the beach music artists and me, “Bo The Webguy”

In Summary….

With my website, Beach Music Online, I have been sending Internet traffic to beach music artist websites from the beach music artist and band schedule page for over 12 years. This list below is simply a ranking based on the activity of the thousands of beach music fans that visit this bmo website and schedule webpage.

If your favorite artist is not listed on the beach music online band schedule page, please use the contact form at and tell me who is missing. I will add them once I get permission from the artist to link to their schedule. ( Requirement, they must have a website schedule page and it has to be somewhat updated. If they are still showing their next event as Magnolia Picking Festival 1996, they may not be approved to be added to the list).
