If you still groove to the '60s and '70s sounds from the likes of The Four Tops, the Drifters or the Tams, there's a treat coming to the hills just west of Brevard this month.

For the second year, the Brevard Philharmonic, known for classical music, not danceable beach sounds, is sponsoring a benefit concert by the Band of Oz, a widely acclaimed group from Raleigh that tours throughout the south.

It's called 'Beachin' It with the Band of Oz" and it's set for Sunday, Oct. 13, from 2 to 5 p.m. on the lawns of the GlenLaurel Preserve in the county's Cherryfield section outside Brevard.
