The Driftwoods are the East Coast’s original Beach Boys tribute band. Since the mid-‘60s, their legendary vocal harmonies and rock n’ roll rhythms have entertained legions of fans, from the casual listener to the veteran rock musician. The Driftwoods have ruled the Rhode Island music scene since their inception, performing on the beaches in Rhode Island, at high school and college dances, on local TV shows, and in numerous battle of the bands contests. In a two-year period, The Driftwoods won 11 of these contests.
Over the years, performances by The Driftwoods have earned them recording contracts, TV appearances, and studio vocal sessions. In addition, the band also performs as an opening act for well-known national artists. In 1965 the band opened for Gary Lewis & The Playboys, and in 1999 they were featured as the opening act for The Rascals. Today, The Driftwoods continue to bring you the sounds of their “Endless Summer” on the live stage. So grab your board, and catch “The Wave of a Lifetime” with Rhode Island’s own Beach Boys tribute band, The Driftwoods!
A few years ago, Anthony Newell and Joseph Cilento decided to put together a Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons tribute group. They recruited some of the best musicians and vocalists throughout New Jersey to form the cast of *The Jersey Four. *
As friends, handshake partners, and band members for over 25 years, Newell and Cilento have become somewhat of a legend in their hometown. Since the late ‘70s, they have put together some of New Jersey’s most popular shows and tribute groups. Their extensive background includes tribute acts for The Beach Boys, The Blues Brothers, Jay & The Americans, and Huey Lewis and The News. They’ve also performed as backup musicians for New Jersey’s own original Duprees and worked with members of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, The Village People, and actor and musician Frank Vincent. In addition, they’ve performed as an opening act for many shows for the late Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge.
