Biography

Formed in 2002 in Brighton, UK by Steve Wrigley and Ralph Brown, this ten-piece band includes Glen Richardson on lead vocals and keyboards, Rory Cameron on guitar and vocals, Adrian Marshall on bass guitar and vocals, Tom Arnold on Hammond organ, accordion and vocals, Theseus Gerrard on drums, percussion and vocals, Paul Gunter on congas, timbales and percussion, Charlotte Glasson on saxophones, flutes and glockenspiel and Dominic Nunns on French horn.

They have played on and around the South Coast of the UK for the last four years, from Dartford in Devon to Herne Bay in Kent. They play over 40 Beach Boys songs at the last count. Recent additions to the live set include Surf’s Up and Catch A Wave.

In May 2005 they performed the whole of Pet Sounds live at the Komedia, Brighton. In May 2006 they performed the Pet Sounds and Sgt Pepper complete albums live in St George’s Church, Kemp Town, Brighton as part of Brighton Festival Fringe. For this show they were augmented by a string quartet, an extra clarinet/sax and a tabla player. In May 2007 they repeated the Pet Sounds/Sgt Pepper experience in St George’s Church on two nights to huge public acclaim. They won two awards for this show, an Argus Angel for “artistic excellence in the Brighton Festival”, and a Latest Festival Award for “Best Music Event”.

The highlight of their brief career to date has to be when Stevie Kalinich, lyric writer of three Beach Boys songs from the sixties, passed them a mobile phone just before they went on stage in Herne Bay, Kent in august 06. On the end of the line – Brian Wilson !! “I hope you’re gonna do California Girls!” he joshed. Luckily, they were !! They exist to bring Brian’s music to the world, sometimes in it’s original context (hence the Pepper shows).
