Surfing Safari was GREAT! The coachhouse is an OK place to see a concert but the customer service at this club is the worst I have ever seen...

More Information



Surfin’ Safari is the most musically and visually satisfying Beach Boys tribute band on the scene today. Boasting the high visibility of music director Chris Farmer, who musically directed the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean and the Drifters, “Surfin’ Safari” is the Beach Boys tribute to see. With tight harmonies, excellent musicianship and a commitment to the accurate reproduction of the repertoire of songs of “California’s Band,” their show is a faithful recreation of what it was like to see the Beach Boys live, in their prime.

The incomparable beauty of their vocal harmonies, the crashing back beat of Dennis Wilson’s drums, the soaring surf guitar of Carl Wilson and the genius of Brian Wilson’s music is captured by a “Surfin’ Safari” performance. The uniband choreography, vintage instruments, the famous striped shirts and the black suede Beach Boys boots add to the visual replication of the Beach Boys phenomenon.

“Since the Beach Boys’ harmonies are well-known to even the casual fan, there is no room for error with a Beach Boys tribute band,” said manager Brian Beirne (‘Mr. Rock N’ Roll”), of KRTH radio fame. “This band works very hard at making sure the songs are recreated note for note,” he continued.

Beirne’s company, Legendary Shows, represents a number of original National music acts with “Surfin’ Safari” being the only tribute band with his company. Why? “Surfin’ Safari has truly captured the essence of the original Beach Boys with stunning harmonies,” said Beirne. "This is a way for all to see and hear what the original Beach Boys were like in the early 60s. I know – I was there,” added Beirn.
