The Coastline Band is compromised of six of the most talented and versatile young musicians in the area. All six members have studied music in high school and college or practiced their craft at the professional level. They have performed in such groups as the East Carolina Symphony Orchestra, Pembroke State University ’s Jazz Band and Jazz Choir, and many Beach, Top 40, Rock & Roll, and Variety Bands. Such diverse backgrounds form a basis for versatility, yet allows the members to mesh for a tight performance. This playing style has earned them a following in every city they perform. With every show, the band makes new fans, friends, and satisfied customers.

The Coastline Band is adaptable and easy to work with. True to the old adage “The show must go on”, the band moved a scheduled outdoor fund raiser for the Children’s Miracle Network INSIDE a local Wal-Mart on a rainy day! The band’s ability to adapt to unusual situations shone through in a performance with legendary balladeer, Percy Sledge, who commented, “This is the best show I’ve played with a band I never rehearsed with.” As anyone who has worked with them will tell you, one can always expect high levels of talent, energy, and professionalism from The Coastline Band.

RICKY CAMPBELL - Drums, Background Vocals
Ricky is the rhythmic backbone of the band. He does more than just keep the beat. Ricky provides the kind of drive that makes it seem easy for the band to keep the energy level high. He can be as entertaining to watch behind the drum set as a lead singer on the front line. This makes Ricky a valuable member of the band.

JAMES JORGENSON - Bass, Valve Trombone, Saxophone, Keyboard, Vocals
is most important to the band as a pivot man. His versatility makes him a great asset. On horns he never misses. His voice is a big part of the sweet vocal blend of the band and his bass playing is as solid as it gets. James graduated from Pembroke State University with a degree in Music Education and teaches strings in the Robeson County Schools.

CHRIS FORE - Trumpet, Guitar, Background Vocals
Chris’ sound on trumpet sparkles just as his stage presence does. Although he originally studied classical music, he learned the art of living good show from having been a member of The Fabulous Boardwalk Band. Chris knows what it takes to perform for hundreds of people every night and gives 110% from start to finish.

STEVE KROEKEL - Keyboard, Trombone, Background Vocals
keyboard prowess must be heard to be believed. He knows just what chords to use to fill up the sound of the band. He doesn’t have to be a flashy player to be effective, but when it’s time for Steve to cut loose...step back! On trombone, Steve is rock solid. He can take solos generally reserved for sax or guitar and bring them to life on trombone. Steve has the uncanny ability to project his natural bass voice into the high falsetto range necessary to complete the band vocal sound. Steve is also a trained musician.

JIM QUICK - Keyboard, Vocals
Jim is a soul man. His voice is reminiscent of such great singers as Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett. He can capture the stylistic nuances that are so important in the band’s music. He is also considered to have expert knowledge of beach music and oldies. Jim was selected as Beach Music Monthly’s Radio DJ of the Month in their premier issue. It is difficult to decide whether these things make Jim such an asset or if it is his unique ability to establish a great rapport with any crowd.

VINCE E. MCDOUGALD - Bass, Keyboard, Saxophone, Guitar, Vocals
is every mother’s worst nightmare because his lead vocals and sax solos are guaranteed to steal hearts. On bass, Vince expands the instrument from the foundation of the band’s sound to the drive that sets The Coastline Band apart from everyone else. Yet, Vince’s role in the band’s sometimes offbeat arrangements may be his most valuable contribution to the group. Vince is an innovator, a natural talent, and a professional performer.
