After a few years of touring colleges from the Carolinas to the Louisiana Bayou, The Swingin' Medallions went to Arthur Smith's Studio in Charlotte 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 band.

Proceeds from the gala will be dispersed in grants to schools, teachers, students, and worthy educational programs in the Greater Greer area. Your contribution will be carefully used to benefit hundreds of students and educators in our community.
