A rescheduled Craig Woolard Band concert is 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3, at The Village Park on Queen Anne Street in Sunset Beach.

The concert was rescheduled after being rained out Oct. 6.

The concert is part of the Sunset Beach concert series that has been so popular this past summer, which raised more than $15,000 for 15 different charities, according to event organizer and local businessman Fred Thorne.

The afternoon concert featuring the ever-popular Craig Woolard Band will benefit The First Tee of Brunswick County.

The Craig Woolard Band is described as a high-energy, seven-piece party and dance band with a killer horn section. It wows the crowd with one of the most diverse repertoires and original crowd-participation shows in the industry.

The band is self-contained with a state-of-the-art sound system and technical crew and is known for its keen professionalism, incredible stage presence, enormous talent and unsurpassed showmanship.

Phenomenal front man Craig Woolard is recognized as one of the finest singer-entertainers to ever hit the stage. He constantly works the crowd with his witty personality, relentless energy, unique finesse and powerful voice.

Throughout his career, Woolard has had the honor of performing with legends like Percy Sledge, The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Blues Brothers, Alabama, The Rolling Stones and Frankie Valli, to mention a few.

His performances span the East Coast to California, New York, Canada, Hawaii and the Caribbean.

Woolard and CWB have received many awards and have been multi-time Carolina Beach Music Award winners, including group of the year, entertainer, male vocalist (12 times), collaboration, album of the year, blues song of the year, producer and song of the year. In 2010, Woolard received the lifetime achievement award, and in 2001, he was inducted into the CBMA Hall of Fame.

Woolard’s first solo effort, “Love Don't Come No Stronger,” was voted CBMA Song of the Year, as well as Producer of the Year.

At the 2012 CBMAs, CWB won five awards including male vocalist, album of the year (“Main Street People”), blues song of the year (“Harlem Shuffle”) and live production and instrumentalist of the year.
