Bootleg Beach Boys drop in to Claude­lands

Waipa Post - - Entertainment -

Fresh from their sold-out world tour in­clud­ing Aus­tralia, France, Lon­don and Hol­land (to name but a few) The Bootleg Beach Boys have an­nounced that they are com­ing to Hamilton’s Clarence Street The­atre on Fri­day, Au­gust 17 and, even bet­ter, we’re of­fer­ing up a 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.
