If there’s one form of entertainment the beach embraces more than anything, it’s music. Mmm, music – the food of love (Shakespeare), the soul of the universe (Plato), the only truth (Kerouac), don’t you agree (all of you)? Fortunately Southern Shores nightlife and Duck, NC, nightlife loves the music scene almost as much as we do. Between the restaurants, bars, boardwalk and park, Duck, NC, nightlife features music happen several times a week, if not nightly. You can listen to songs written and performed by locals as well as works from musicians traveling about and showcasing their talent, such as what happens every October at the Duck Jazz Festival. With live bands and solo acts, you can let the melodies surround you while you enjoy gourmet food at restaurants, sip a specialty cocktail or even munch on a yummy dessert from a bakery or sweet shop. If there’s a particular artist or group you really want to hear but you miss one of their shows, don’t despair – Duck, NC, nightlife and other events include many of these artists performing multiple times at the same venue!
