VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia — U.S. Tours and the city of Virginia Beach are combining to present Under the Boardwalk, a nostalgia-filled group travel event October 9-12, 2018, based on the Drifter’s 1964 hit song of the same name.

The highlight of three nights of rock and pop music classics from the 1960s and 1970s will be a performance by the Drifters on stage at the Sandler Center in Virginia Beach, sandwiched around evenings celebrating the music of Jimmy Buffett and the Beach Boys.

“This is the rock and roll evolution of group travel,” said Bob Cline of U.S. Tours. “As boomers begin filling buses, tour packages are being filled with themed events that deliver either an experience or activity that allows travelers a chance to live or relive a moment.” 

Guests are encouraged to get in the mood with flip-flops and bright-colored Aloha shirts for the opening night featuring the Buffett cover band Changes in Attitude and the final evening for the Beach Boys cover band Still Surfin.

The trio of beach music concerts is limited to 1,200 people.
