The Surf City Allstars were formed in the early 80's with the band members who were touring with both the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean. The Surf City Allstars are now a full time endeavor for the band members. The Surf City Allstars are the best surfin' beach party band around on a par with their friends, the Beach Boys. Each member has had a long career in surf and beach music. When you hear the band, you get the authentic "SURF" sound and harmonies that were taught to the Allstars by Brian Wilson and Mike Love of the Beach Boys, and Jan Berry of Jan & Dean. The Surf City Allstars perfected their vocals and performance of all the greatest surf music hits through years of touring with the legendary Beach Boys and Jan & Dean.

The Line-Up

The Allstars are rounded out with Gary Griffin on keyboards (Beach Boys, Jan & Dean), David Logeman on drums (Jan & Dean, Mike Love's California Beach Band, Beach Boys), and Don Raymond on guitar (The Ventures, Jan & Dean). The band is also very pleased to add Philip Bardowell on bass and vocals after years of his touring with the Beach Boys, and Matt Jardine from the Beach Boys on vocals and percussion.

The Show

The Surf City Allstars will entertain your group with such audience participation segments as their famous "Air Guitar" contest, where the band gives away a brand new, autographed Fender Squier Stratocaster guitar; the "Wipe Out Contest" where audience members get a chance to play the famous drum solo with the Allstars and win autographed drumsticks and a T-shirt; our "Dance Contest" where CD prizes are given away; and even a "Hula-Hoop Contest" where we give away more CDs and a DVD. It all adds up to one great time for your audience in the best Beach Party experience that there is. The Surf City Allstars also bring the finest oldie's dance tunes to round out their engagements so everyone can dance to their favorite songs and have fun.

"They sound like the real deal because they ARE the real deal! Dean Torrence and the Surf City Allstars are not like the typical tribute band or sound-alike group. Their genuine sound comes from members who actually sang and played on those hits by Jan & Dean and the Beach Boys. Great show!"
