Known by many South Carolinians as the “Party Band of the South”, the Swingin' Medallions have been based out of the Greenwood South Carolina area, since the early 1960's. The music most often associated with the band is beach music, frat rock, R&B, or shaggin' music. After a few years of touring colleges in the south, John McElrath took the group to Arthur Smith's Studio in Charlotte North Carolina, to record "Double Shot (of My Baby's Love)". The song became a million seller in 1966, they followed up with. "She Drives Me Out Of My Mind" & "Hey, Hey, Baby" which were top 40 hits as well. "Double Shot" remains the signature song of the Swingin' Medallions. Although the the members changed over the years, the band has always included around eight members with at least a four piece horn section. The high energy party style stage performance of the first Medallions has been passed down to the band that performs today.
