Our Aims and Direction...
The Association of Beach and Shag Club
DeeJays (ABSCDJ) is a primarily social organization comprised of members
interested in the dissemination, further expansion, and preservation of beach
and shag music and the directly related lifestyles that accrue from it.
We strive to exhibit a high level of
professionalism in both our presentation of this music and in our personal
demeanor while doing it.
The Association is a committed, integral part
of every community it serves, especially in relation to charitable functions
which benefit these communities and their constituencies, of which we also are
an active part.
While the personal goals, behavior and
performance of each individual member are not within the direct purview or close
control of this primarily social organization, the great majority of its members
are seriously committed to daily demonstration of the highest standards of each
of these areas. We care deeply about both our music and how we play it.
From its seminal beginnings in Chapel Hill,
North Carolina in 1984, with design of an organizational logo, a first themed
tee shirt and discussion of proposed goals and objectives, to its formal
chartering several years later in Atlantic Beach, N. C. by a core group of
founders, the organization's roots are as deep and intense as the music and
dance we strive to preserve and promulgate.
A personal goal for our members includes not
only their personal enjoyment of this wonderful genre of music and the dance
that it brings to life, but also the sharing of this, the learning process
involving the music and dance, and much, much more. We welcome your interest,
participation, questions and constructive
