(Beach Boys tribute)

On Saturday, September 14th, the Historic Hemet Theatre will welcome back to the stage one of its most requested tributes – Southern California’s top tribute to The Beach Boys, Surf’s Up.

In 1961, The Beach Boys released their debut single “Surfin,” sparking the creation of an entire genre of music called “beach sound” and inspiring a decade of music around the California lifestyle. The band remains one of the most critically acclaimed, commercially successful and influential bands of all time, selling over 100 million records. 

Classic Beach Boys songs include “Surfin’ USA,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Fun, Fun, Fun.” ” I Get Around,” “Help Me, Rhonda,” “California Girls,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Sloop John B,” and so many more.

Similar to the Beach Boys, Surf’s Up is a family band.  Brothers Donny & Danny Goldberg, their father Don Goldberg Sr. and cousin Denny Hardwick have been performing together for 25 years. Their sibling harmonies capture the authentic blend of the Beach Boys with fantastic precision. Not just another tribute band, these veterans truly bring the magical “Sound of Summer” to the stage.
