Beach Klub Announces 2014 Concert Series
Koru Village’s Beach Klub will open on May 10 with a full summer schedule, including the Beach Klub’s Music by the Beach Concert Series.
The venue will bring a variety of genres to Cape Hatteras, some musicians visiting the island for the first time and others returning to play at the Beach Klub’s PapaWack Theatre for their third year in a row.
"I am so glad Carbon Leaf will be playing down at Koru Village’s Beach Klub in Avon this summer! Vibe is everything, and when we think Koru provides the right natural ambience and environment without detracting from it. The Beach Klub is the perfect beach setting for a concert, and will be a great nightcap to the End of Summer 2014," said, Barry Privett of Carbon Leaf.
