The Surf City Allstars are the only tribute band where every member toured in the Beach Boys band. They offer a performance so true to the sounds of the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean that they have won ringing endorsements from members of the original bands.

The Surf City Allstars formed in the early 80s. Member David Marks has recorded four studio albums with the Beach Boys and played guitar and sang on many of the Beach Boys biggest hits: Surfin’ Safari, Surfin’ USA, Surfer Girl, Catch A Wave, Little Deuce Coupe, 409, Shut Down and In My Room, to name a few.

In recent years, David has recorded on the Beach Boys That’s Why God Made The Radio album and was a guest artist on Brian Wilson’s 2015 solo release No Pier Pressure.

David also toured the world as part of the highly publicized Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Celebration and toured alongside Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and Jeff Beck in what was called one of the top tours of 2013. He still tours as a special guest with the touring Beach Boys.

Member Dean Torrence is the co-founder of the hit surf duo, Jan & Dean. Dean first teamed up with Jan Berry in the 1950s while they both attended high school in Los Angeles. The duo went on to score a huge string of hit songs beginning in 1959 until Jan’s terrible car accident in 1966.

Since Jan’s untimely death in 2004, Dean has kept their music alive and brings the Greatest Hits of Jan & Dean live as a special guest of the Surf City Allstars.

Some of the chart-topping songs Dean performs with the Surf City Allstars include Jan & Dean’s number one hit Surf City, The Little Old Lady From Pasadena, Deadman’s Curve, Drag City, Honolulu Lulu, Ride the Wild Surf, Sidewalk Surfin’, New Girl In School and Linda. Dean also sings Barbara Ann, the hit he sang on the Beach Boys’ Party album.

She’s performed on numerous occasions at both the lodge and country club and opened for the Four Tops at the Rose Bowl.
