ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
The brain child of Joe Mullins (Beatles for Sale, Inertia 66, The Last Waltz) who serves as the groups fastidious musical director (as well as playing an impressive array of instruments). Joe also voices the sweet tones of Al Jardine and Bruce Johnson.
Damian Butler (The Last Waltz and Now That’s Live!) plays drums and percussion, giving the band that infectious ’60’s beat, and voices the parts of Dennis Wilson and Mike Love to boot.
Mark Maguire and Joe Leech (Bipolar Empire and Lunar) add the sweet harmonies that make The Beach Boys so instantly recognisable, and play lead guitar and bass respectively. Between them they capture the vocal resemblance of Al Jardine, Bruce Johnson and Mike love, a mean feat considering the vocal range of their calibre!
Fran King (The Classic Beatles, The Get Back Show, and Edisons) adds the high register of Brian and Carl Wilson to the combo, playing bass and acoustic guitar.
