The Carolina Copycats are a group of seniors whose primary goal is to entertain seniors. Through lip syncing and costumed performances we take our audience back in time to when Rock and Roll was king. Many of our viewers experience the nostalgia of this era with our music and performances.
A SPECIAL performance by the Carolina Copy Cats was featured at a Tega Cay Vintage Club dinner. The Copy Cats wowed the 120 attending members and guests with a wide variety of songs, costumes and music. Always on cue, the Copy Cats gave their best in memorable numbers that included Elvis and Sinatra. They brought the roof down with their closing number; “When The Saints Come Marching In.” The Vintage Club thanks each Copy Cat for a GREAT performance!
