CALIFORNIA SURF INCORPORATED
Featuring members who have toured and recorded with The Beach Boys
Since their inception, virtually all of the performances of California Surf, Incorporated have been sold out! These legends of surf music have united to offer the most spectacular tribute to the legendary Beach Boys! This is the ONLY group which features ALL former members of the Beach Boys Band - and each member has numerous touring and recording credits from many years with the group!
Principal members Bobby Figueroa (drums/vocals), Billy Hinsche (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Ed Carter (guitar/bass/vocals) each have a distinctive career that includes performances with The Beach Boys at such iconic venues as The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, Maple Leaf Gardens (Canada), Wembley Stadium (UK) and many other venues around the world including the Reagan White House. Members have performed at historic rock ‘n’ roll celebrations including Live Aid, Farm Aid and other major events.
They have received RIAA certified Gold LP Records from the Beach Boys for their studio work on The Beach Boys In Concert, 15 Big Ones, Love You, Still Cruisin’ and the 30 Years Of The Beach Boys boxed set. These fine players have consistently been involved with The Beach Boys’ live touring band throughout the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s and can be seen on many of the group’s televised performances such as Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, MTV videos for “Still Cruisin’” and “Kokomo” and on The Beach Boys’ 25th Anniversary TV Special from Hawaii.
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. 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.”
