Boot­leg Beach Boys drop in to Hamil­ton

Te Awamutu Courier - - Entertainment -

The mu­sic of The Beach Boys re­mains as per­ti­nent and rel­e­vant to­day as it was in their hey­day and the num­ber of you who want to see their great­est pro­po­nents – The Boot­leg Beach Boys - in con­cert at Hamil­ton’s Clarence Street The­atre on Fri­day, Au­gust 17 is tes­ta­ment to that.

We’re of­fer­ing up a sec­ond chance for you to win one of two dou­ble passes to take in what is go­ing to be a truly mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence.

The fully cos­tumed show — that takes you right from the very be­gin­ning of The Beach Boys and through their ca­reer — will fea­ture clas­sic hits and cult favourites from Cal­i­for­nia's most fa­mous band.

From surf themed an­thems such as Surfin' Sa­fari and Surfer Girl to muscle car mem­o­rables like Shut Down and Fun Fun Fun, the band have gath­ered a truly im­pres­sive reper­toire of West Coast, har­mony-laden songs, that evoke the spirit and essence of the pur­suit of the 1960s Amer­i­can dream.

The band tackle such clas­sics as In My Room, God Only Knows, Good Vi­bra­tions and Help Me Rhonda in their hit heavy set, but also pay homage to the ge­nius of Brian Wil­son in the form of se­lec­tions from the sem­i­nal Pet Sounds (roundly hailed by mu­sic crit­ics the world over as one of the best al­bums ever recorded – pe­riod), and cult favourites from the leg­endary Smile al­bum.

Look out too for such great Beach Boy num­bers as Cal­i­for­nia Girls, Wouldn't It Be Nice, All Sum­mer Long, Lit­tle Deuce Coupe, He­roes And Vil­lains and Kokamo that will have you rocking in the aisles.

This blend of five vocals and in­fec­tious sun-soaked gems makes for a mem­o­rable night to cel­e­brate some of the finest mu­sic com­mit­ted to tape over four decades.
