The Return at the Monroe County Fine Arts Center
The Return Returns to the Monroe FAC
The Return got its start in 1995 when four young friends from the Atlanta area got together to play their favorite Beatles songs “just for fun.” Originally named “The Roaches,” they were asked by a friend to perform in front of an audience in a one-time gig and “the rest is history.” Over time, they polished their act by striving for a high level of authenticity to recreate the Beatles’ early sixties concert experiences. In the past decade, they have performed across the United States and overseas, including at Abbey Road Studios in London, and headlining the 40th anniversary celebration of the Beatles visit to Tokyo with a tour of Japan. You may also remember their stop at our Fine Arts Center back in 2017.
The Return is coming back to Forsyth on Saturday, July 23.
You can catch them on stage at the Monroe County Fine Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $30. Buy yours today here.

The Swingin' Medallions
|The Swingin’ Medallions have been based out of the Greenwood South Carolina area, since the early 1960’s. Their musical roots came from listening to the early rhythm and blues acts. 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 from the Carolinas to the Louisiana Bayou, 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, and has been a party classic for college students for decades. “She Drives Me Out Of My Mind” and “Hey, Hey, Baby” were top 40 hits in 1966 and 1967, but “Double Shot” remains the signature song of the Swingin’ Medallions.
The high energy party style stage performance of the first Medallions has been passed down to the band that performs today. The present Medallions stage show has coined them the name “The Party Band of the South.” Forsyth Mainstreet Event/Concerts on the Square
