Click here to view the City of Greenwood photo album. What a way to cap off the week! We were extremely excited that we were able to raise over 31,000 for a music scholarship at Lander University, John received the "Order of the Palmetto" award from the Governor of SC, and the Mayor of Greenwood proclaimed September 12th "John McElrath Day" and gave John a "Key to the City" to go with the one the band received in the 60's.

8-19-08--The above photo circa (1966) was sent to us by DJ Dave "Rockin" Roddy from WSGN, Birmingham. His playing of "Double Shot" back in 66’ helped turn it into a hit! The photo is of the groups' very first “Medallion Monday” in Birmingham at the Hollywood Country Club. If you were lucky enough to attend one of these shows, you know how famous they would become. Dave says, “We had a good idea that this first Medallion Monday in Birmingham would be ground-breaking but we didn't know how big, for sure!”

8-18-08--Check this out, Bruce Springsteen was in Charleston SC over the weekend and opened with "Double Shot", click here to read about it .

7-25-08--Deadliest Catch Update--We usually wait until Monday mornings to update the website, but thought we would go ahead and give you a special update. On Wednesday morning in Destin FL, we all met in the hotel lobby at 5:30am, yes AM. And for some reason, unknown to modern man, nobody was late…a remarkable feat to say the least. The stereotypical late night musician comes into mind here! Matt had arranged for us to go deep-sea fishing. Some of us had enough forethought to use a motion sickness patch or to take a pill. This later proved to be a wise decision. We drove to the marina, hopped on the boat and departed the dock for the open seas. The captain cruises to the fishing hot spot and we proceed to drop our lines. Everyone is catching lots of red snapper. Most were too small, but we ended up keeping a dozen or so. We also caught some tuna and a king mackerel. The highlight of the trip was knowing that one of the guys regretted not taking the motion sickness pill, if you know what I mean. I will save him the embarrassment of divulging his name. There were a couple of other guys who turned completely pale and wished they has stayed in bed! All we needed was a camera crew, we have all the ingredients for an awesome reality television show! We got off the boat around noon and had plenty of time to rest before the show that night. Anyway, we had a great time out there and thought we would share the experience with you.

7-28-08--Hey Gang! We were in Greenwood SC on Friday. We played at the Chick-Fil-A for their Community Appreciation Day. There was a great turnout for the free show. They even had a helicopter drop little stuffed cows that were attached to parachutes. That was a sight to see. Then, we headed down to the AT&T Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament. A huge crowd as always and despite a quick thundershower, we had a large time. Thanks to Mike Wheeler, the Director of the Tournament for taking such good care of us. WE are headed to Cartersville GA on Saturday, check the dates page for details. Remember that Jekyll is just around the corner, make your plans now to attend the wildest weekend of the Summer!

7-6-08—WOW! We had an awesome week. We were at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain GA for our annual July 4th show. I believe it is the 20th year in a row for us. There were around 10 thousand people there, give or take. But, after 5 songs the rains came and did not stop! The winds kicked up to about 50 mph and destroyed EZ-UP tents, and ruined the show. Brad was so scared by the thunder that he hid under the stage in a road case! We had an incredible show planned. Former Medallions Chris Crowe, Richard Loper, Richard Crocker, and Hack Bartley joined us. It is a shame that we didn’t get to play the show….but we will be back next year. Also, we were fortunate enough to be asked to go to Ottawa, Canada to play a July 4th show at the United States Embassy for the US Ambassador to Canada, David Wilkins, who happens to be from South Carolina, our home state. We sent Original Medallions John McElrath, Joe Morris, and Brent Fortson up there along with Shawn, Jake, Matt, and Josh to show the Canadians how we do it down here. They has a crowd of around 4000. It was an incredible honor for us to be invited to do this! Then, the guys flew back to Atlanta to meet us at Chateau Elan for a show on July 5th. After a couple days of rest, we head to Amelia Island on Thursday for a private show for our pals from Silverton Bank (formerly Bankers Bank) then head to Greenwood for a show on Saturday.

Then we were at Thoroughbred's in Charlotte on Sunday. Another great venue and a great crowd. NC is known for their love of beach music and shagging, but they really liked the music we played and loved the band even though we don't play tons of beach music. We will be down at Callaway Gardens on July 4th and Chateau Elan in Braselton GA on the 5th, see you there! Check our dates page for shows in your area.

5-12- 08--Hey Folks. We were down in Callahan FL on Thursday night at the West Nassau High School. Then, we were in Bainbridge GA on Friday for the Rivertown Days Festival. We played with The Tams. A brief history lesson...if not for people like Charles Pope and Joe Pope, the founders of The Tams and for people like John McElrath, the founder of the Medallions, we would not be around today. Joe Pope passed on a few years back, but his brother Charles along with his son Redd keep the Tams tradition alive, just as John and his two sons, Shawn and Shane keep the Medallion tradition alive. John and Charles have paved the road for us and we owe so much to them. They have kept their respective bands around, working for over 40 years and that is incredibly admirable. If you have not caught a Medallion/Tams show, you should try to see one. Redd, Reggie, and the other guys in the Tams put on a great show. Anyway....we are headed to Dalton Ga on Friday, Birmingham AL on Saturday for a private show, and then back to Marietta GA on Sunday.

5-5-08--Hello! We were in the large town of Prosperity SC on Friday night at Marx Marina, then we played in Abbeville SC on Saturday for the Spring Fling.

We were at the Pirates Cove on Friday night and we opened The Cammy Awards at the Alabama Theater on Sunday. We are a little different than most of the other beach music type bands that are out there and we were not quite sure how we would be accepted into their world, even though we were voted into the
Cammy Hall of Fame in 1996... Well, the fans loved the band and were very complimentary. We met lots of music fans from all over the country.

Make sure to support Greenville radio staion, 103.3 and Beach Bob, we appreciate all he does for us, If you were tuned in to 103.3 on Thursday afternoon you may have heard Robby in a rare interview, as you may know he is usually content hiding behind his drum kit. We were at Stokies in Greenwood SC Friday night and I don't think many more people could have fit in there, it is always nice to play for the hometown crowd. We have tonight off and will be tuned into the USC/GA game....or maybe even the Clemson game.

We played a fundraiser over in Athens GA on Friday for the Athens Area Cancer Auxiliary. It rained like crazy during the afternoon! The show was outside and when the rains finally subsided we were able to get about half way through the first set before it started to drizzle once again. As you may know, electricity and band equipment don’t mix. We suffered some equipment damage and were not able to continue the show. We are SORRY! Saturday we were at the fairgrounds in Alma GA. It was another scheduled outdoor show, but with the eminent rains approaching, we decided to move the show inside one of the fairground buildings. It was not air-conditioned and reminded me of being in an oven. But, we were able to get the entire show off and had a wonderful time. We even had original Medallions, Johnny Cox and Jimmy Perkins join us. This week we are headed to Knoxville TN on Saturday for a private show and then we will be at Chateau Elan in Braselton GA on Sunday for their annual Concert Series.

We feel very honored to have been a part of the Inaugural celebrations. Read below for all of the details from last week. We are headed to Atlanta GA this weekend to play a show for the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce. After all the shows last week, we needed a little break so we headed over to Hack Bartley’s farm. Hack is an Original Medallion and has been traveling with us lately, along with his son, Jake. We decided to try our luck at riding his horses. Needless to say, most of us are fairly inexperienced at this kind of thing. But none of us city boys were bucked off of old "Glue Stick" and we had a great ride on the trails. See the photos to your right.

1-22-07----We were in Atlanta over the weekend to play for the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce. Thanks to John Grey and Kali Boatright for taking such good care of us!

12-31-06---We had a great New Years Eve show at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, FL. Former Medallions Chris Crowe and Richard Loper joined us on stage. It was loads of fun having them back. We would like to thank Jeff Bloom from the Renaissance for the hospitality and especially for the complimentary golf passes! I think that is why our friend Johnny Paulk (Jekyll Island, GA), the best Golf Pro in the world calls us The Golf Swingin’ Medallions. We will be looking forward to next years’ show in St. Augustine!

What a week! We had the honor of having original Medallion, Hack Bartley and his son, Jake along for the week. We played a private show at the Georgia Aquarium on Wednesday, the show was held in their Ballroom, with the top of the aquarium as part of the ballroom wall. It was a great setting for a party and we even got to take a tour through the aquarium, very nice! Thursday morning we hopped on the bus and headed down to Jekyll Island for the GA/FL Golf Tournament. Before the show, we had time to get in nine holes. We had a friendly golf match. It was Robby, Shawn, Ashby, and Hack (the old guys) verses Andrew, Brad, Jake, and Josh (the young guys). The “old guys” even gave 4 strokes to the “young guys” and the old guys still won the match! Then Friday we went to Amelia Island for another GA/FL show. We played with the Tams and had a huge crowd and lots of fun until the rain came about 11pm. Then we had to rise early to make it to Peachtree City on Saturday for a show at the Frederick Brown Amphitheater. No time for golf Saturday, but I’m sure the “young guys will lick their wounds and be ready for a rematch very soon. We are headed to Winder GA this coming Saturday for a show at the Winder Community Center, check out the dates page for more info. Also, we just added a show at The Country Club in Augusta, GA on Wednesday, November 8 for what we are graciously calling "Mid-Week Medallion Mayhem".

We were in Valdosta, GA Friday night. It was the 100th Birthday celebration for Valdosta State University. The crowd was in the 1000's and they topped the evening off with a great fireworks show. We were in Augusta, GA Saturday night for the American Cancer Society Beach Party. Former Medallion, Chris Crowe joined us...Now for the rest of the story...The bus left Greenwood, SC Friday morning at 7:00am. We were pulling a trailer full of our musical equipment. Somewhere around Macon, one of the tires falls off the trailer, we pull over and find that the axle is broken. We unattach the trailer, go back to town and rent a Budget Truck. Then, we go unload the trailer and put all the gear on the rental. We finally make it to the show and luckily it goes off with no problems. Then, we leave the hotel in Valdosta at 8:00am Saturday morning for Augusta. The bus driver is having a hard time steering. We find that the power steering pump has a blown hose. Luckily, we find a diesel mechanic that is open on Saturday and he agrees to fix it. So, noon comes and it isn't ready. We decide to send Ashby to the airport to rent a 15 passenger van, because some genius (probably a band manager) once said, " The show MUST go on". Of course all they have is a mini-van. He rents it and 7 of us pack in with our instruments and madras pants. We decide to leave Chris Crowe with the bus in Valdosta on the off chance that they are able to repair it. They finally repair it around 5:00pm and Crowe arrived in Augusta just as we were finishing the show. We all hopped on the Bus and went home. Ahhh, the joys of the road!

What can we say about the Jekyll Island Beach Music Festival....It was crowded, hot, lots of fun, and there were more past and present Medallions there than at any other location in the history of the world. If you missed it, you missed a good one!

The reunion concert Saturday night was incredible. Many of the original members of the band were in attendance, along with other members from past years. It was a sold out show with portions of the proceeds going to the Greenwood Area Sertoma Club

Brad, Shawn, Shane and John want to thank Sonny Dixon and the great people at WTOC TV in Savannah GA for allowing the Swingin' Medallions to be part of Mid-Morning Live with Sonny and Jody. Thanks.

Some of the guys will be live in the South Carolina ETV Studios on Monday night at 7:00pm as part of the Premiere of the Documentary, "Drive-Ins and Soda Shops". They will be singing a little and helping with the Summer Membership Drive.

The Swingin' Medallions were at Chateau Elan in Atlanta, GA on Saturday night. It was sold out and was a fun show. We haven't been there in a couple of years and it was nice to be back. We had former Medallions Richard Loper and Chris Crowe join us for this show. We had lots of laughs before the show reminiscing about old times.

The Swingin' Medallions were in Gainesville, GA on Friday night for "The Arts Council" Summer Concert Series. We were joined by Original Medallions, Hack Bartley and Johnny Cox. Jake Bartley and Jerry Polk were also on board. The clouds came in as our crew finished the setup, and then it RAINED! We sat around and waited it out. The amazing crowd did not leave and when the thundershower passed, we played and everyone had a wet, but great time. We would like to thank Gladys Wyant and her staff for everything. Scroll down the page to see a few photos from the show. We will be playing at Chateau Elan on Saturday, don't miss this show. Visit www.chateauelanatlanta.com for details.

The Medallions played in Table Rock, SC on Saturday night at the Victoria Valley Vineyards. It is an extremely nice winery located in the Northwestern SC mountains.

We always have a great time when he is around...In other news, we received an email from a radio station in Australia the other day, they are going to do an interview with John and some of the other original members of the band...Also, check out EBAY, there are always lots of auctions for the Album from 1966 and other auctions for singles they recorded with Capitol Records in the late 60's and Early 70's.

The Palatka Blue Crab Festival was great. It was our pleasure to be a part of a festival that was so well organized, thanks Mike McDanial . We would also like to thank Bob Mayes for writing a wonderful article about the Medallions for the Palataka Daily News. We had a little rain delay in Thunderbolt but once we got cranked up it was as wide open as usual. Thanks Tubbys

May 20, 2006 - The Medallions performed Saturday at the Brookfield West Country Club in Roswell GA . The Roswell Booster Club's annual fundraiser was another success. The stage was out on the putting green with tables decorated with a great variety of food. We had thought that the rain was going to stop the show at any minute but we were fortunate to only have a wonderful beach like breeze. The atmosphere was perfect for dancing and Beach Music. We would like to thank Steve Rochlin and the Booster Club for inviting the Medallions to be a part of their event.
