Swinging Medallions:
SWINGING MEDALLIONS


A few years ago, Rush Limbaugh once asked his audience what had happened to all the "good music". And added, "What ever happened to the Swingin' Medallions"? Well Rush, we're happy to report the Medallions are still playing that good music throughout the Southeast.

As the headliners of the "Original Coors Beach Party," the Swingin' Medallions bring their high-energy party style performance to the delight of audiences of all ages. Their act, as well as their music, is indeed timeless. John McElrath, founder of the original band, leads the eight-member group. Today's Swingin' Medallions have performed together for more than eleven years and include John's two sons and other second generations of the band. Featuring a five piece horn section, the group effectively blends the sounds and music of yesterday and today. Their diverse song list has made them overwhelmingly popular with college audiences as well as mature rock and rollers throughout the Southeast.

The band became famous in 1966 with the release of their one million seller, Double Shot of My Baby's Love, which remains the signature song of the group today. The song, in fact, demonstrated its own timeless popularity as the cast of the hit television show Ally McBeal sang along with the original Medallions recording in an October 1998 episode. Bruce Springsteen labeled it "the greatest fraternity rock song of all time". Double Shot was followed by Top 40 hits; She Drives Me Out Of Mind and Hey, Hey Baby. Although membership of the group changed over the years, the popularity of their show did not. They became known in the talent industry as "THE PARTY BAND OF THE SOUTH", a tag that the group now proudly advertises.

In 1993 the nationally syndicated columnist Lewis Grizzard wrote: "Even today, when I hear the Swingin' Medallions sing Double Shot of My Baby's Love, it makes me want to stand outside in the hot sun with a milkshake cup full of beer in one hand and a slightly drenched nineteen-year old coed in the other."

The band has just released its very first CD, "The Original Coors Beach Party Volume 1". Featuring many of the great party tunes of the past, the album also contains the first re-release of Double Shot.
