On Friday, June 11th, Don Rolader, aka “The Shag Man” returns to The Mill!
Don Rolader is an attorney in Alpharetta who lives in Big Canoe. He has had a love of old school R&B, Beach & Shag music, Blues and Country music since his college days in the late 60’s. He is a Beach Music historian and a collector of great Shag Music. Don has performed an annual DJ for a day gig on WSGE FM 91.7 in Dallas North Carolina for the last eight years. WSGE is the four time CAMMY award winning Beach Music station of the year.
The music may run from the Four Tops & Temptations to The Drifters to The Swingin’ Medallions to Huey Lewis & Rod Stewart to Alabama, to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Jimmy Buffet to Bruno Mars. Be prepared to disco a little bit, line dance if you choose, shag the night away, twist and even hokey pokey with The Embers if you remember how. Who knows, you may hear Darius Rucker, Pharrell Williams, Confederate Railroad, Frank Sinatra, The Jesters, Charlie Daniels, The Eagles, Barry White and Jerry Lee Lewis in the same show. Requests are always welcome!
You bring a smile and The Shag Man will bring the party!
