Originally known as beach music band Stax of Gold and later Nantucket Sleighride, the six-member group included Tommy Redd, Larry Uzzell, Mike Uzzell, Eddie Blair, Kenny Soule, and Mark Downing. They became a huge draw in their home state of North Carolina as a cover band. Nantucket eventually became a powerful and tenacious sensation, amassing numerous fans across the southeastern United States well before its first release.

The band signed with Epic Records in 1977 and released its self-titled album the following year, which featured the hit single "Heartbreaker." An aggressive cross-country tour followed, and Nantucket opened for top acts such as KISS, Styx, Boston, AC/DC, Rush, Journey, and The Doobie Brothers. Their first album sold around 200,000 copies and also made the Billboard charts. In 1979, Nantucket followed up with Your Face or Mine?.

Through the years Nantucket has continued to release albums and remains a major draw for it's live shows throughout the southeast.
