COMPLETE BIOGRAPHY:

These veterans of surf-rock are considered by many to be the “A Team” band for their skills and ability to perform these fun yet intricate instrumental and vocal parts that are the hallmark of The Beach Boys’ sound. Over the years, members have shared the stage with Ringo Starr, Sir Elton John, Jimmy Page, Joe Walsh, Roger McGuinn, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Burton Cummings, America, Chicago, Ray Charles, The Everly Brothers, Three Dog Night, Jan & Dean and many, many others.

Their standard setlist includes all the great early Beach Boys’ songs such as “Surfer Girl,” “Little Deuce Coupe” and “Don’t Worry Baby” and also features a generous selection from the famous Pet Sounds LP with “God Only Knows,” "Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “Sloop John B.” Their show rocks with a non-stop party of crowd-pleasing hits including “California Girls,” “Kokomo,” “Good Vibrations,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Surfin’ USA" and “Fun, Fun, Fun.”
