A number of beach music bands -- including one with ties to Greenville -- will entertain during Saturday's Triangle Beach Music Festival when it moves to its new home at the Pitt County Fairgrounds, 3901 N.E. Greenville Blvd, Greenville.

 The outdoor festival, billed by its organizers as "the official kickoff party of the summer," has been held for the past 17 years in the Wake County town of Garner.

 This year's lineup in Greenville  includes Jim Quick & Coastline, Hip Pocket, Spare Change, and Band of Oz, a party band formed by members of the Stage Band at Greenville's J.H. Rose High School in the mid-1960s that has become one of beach music's premier bands.

 Food vendors will be on site all day, including King's Concessions, Dank Burrito Truck, The Wacky Tomatoe, Party in a Pita, Mixed Korean Truck, Devine Desserts and Greenville Moose Lodge.

 Parking lots open at 10 a.m. and the show begins at 11:15 a.m.

 Advance general admission tickets are $20 and may be purchased at www.trianglebeach.com.
