Sometimes when a band goes away, for what ever reason we look for something to fill the gap. http://www.youtube.c...h?v=XHT6v1G285o

Yea those guys nail the Beach Boys.  Get a copy of Pet Sounds (2001 remaster) and listen to it on the best sound system you can find.  Read the liner notes as you listen to the album.  You will have a whole new appreciation for the Beach Boys and Brian Wilson in particular.

Wow.  These guys are great!   I really enjoyed all the Beach Boys music they performed on the many YouTube clips I found. 

 

Thanks for posting this . . . I had never heard of them before!

 

 

One interesting thought, though . . . it looks like they have 21 guys on stage to recreate the music and harmonies originally produced by Brian Wilson and the 5-member Beach Boys.  Gives you a whole new appreciation for the talents of the Beach Boys!

  • Brian Wilson would probably enjoy it! Mike Love, on the other hand, is probably holed up with his attorneys at this very moment trying to figure out exactly how to sue them for copyright infringements.......

Not sure how "cover" songs work, but if you look at the first five or six albums by the Beatles and The Rolling Stones, almost half the songs are covers by someone else.  :P

Don't forget that you can do all sorts of things in a recording studio. 21 guys, 5 guys, 1 guy... with overdubs and multi-track and the endless list of technical trickery a modern recording studio offers, you can't trust anything to be what it sounds like it is! I'm sure Brian Wilson used his share of studio tricks.

True harry, and The Beatles learned a lot of the techniques from the Beach boys. In fact John Lennon had said the Pet Sounds album was a very great inspiration to them.
