Welcome to The Beach Toys site now known as: 

 
                 

       

               "CATCH A WAVE"             

(AND YOU'RE SITTIN' ON TOP OF THE WORLD ! )

The idea for this incredible show was to recreate the look and sound of a live Beach Boys concert circa 1964 to 1969.To replicate a unique harmonic California sound that was created by Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Mike Love and Al Jardine. This was the spark that ignited the flame in 2000 that burns today in every  performance.

Make a smart choice, be a smart buyer ! 

Today there are many choices in Beach Boys tributes, many have popped up simply acting as  "copy cats" of The Catch A Wave original presentation. This show  is the first (formerly known as The Beach Toys) and has clearly mastered  the harmonic vocals with the exact slurs, slides, scoops and Beach Boy mannerisms that have taken many many years to master. Be careful with other so called Beach Boys tributes that claim they are the originals or the "only" in their presentation. Get the tightest ! Get the originals, the true real originals....CATCH A WAVE. Simply go to our archive page or photo page to witness proof of the inception of our show dating back to 2002.

Honestly, many others are not really "tributes" but really nothing more then Hawaiian shirt bands that neither tackle the very intricate 5 parts harmonic vocals of CATCH A WAVE nor present a theatrical vintage live show presentation. Half baked at best. While even others make use of vocal tracks. What are vocal tracks ? This is nothing more then a recording of vocals as opposed to singing vocals live. Yes..the vocals are actually "fake" fooling you as you are not hearing vocals sung live. CATCH A WAVE USES NO VOCAL OR INSTRUMENT TRACKS...It is an all live instrument and vocal experience and so is our video demo ! Catch A Wave replicates the 1960's Beach Boys right down to the "Blond Amplifiers",The Dennis Wilson "Blue Satin Flame" drum set, ,Fender white guitars (Gibson 12 string used by Carl Wilson), hair styles and costumes as seen below !

 

CATCH A WAVE" members were personally selected to perform FOR BRIAN WILSON  AND THE BEACH BOYS' FAMILIES AND FRIENDS  at the California state historical landmark dedication of the home of The Beach Boys in Hawthorne, California. Other Beach Boys tributes are claiming to have performed at the Dedication in May of 2005. Make no mistake, CATCH A WAVE members were the only Beach Boys tribute show  to have been selected to perform at this legendary historical event and we have the photos to prove it Below.

Only the members below have traveled the world performing theatrical venues, cruise ships, major casinos, major fairs and special events to include Disney Entertainment on the "Wave riders" stage at Disney's California Adventure Park as seen below .

"CATCH A WAVE" is the one to "Catch"  

 Members of the The Beach Boys as well as the unbelievable Brian Wilson Band have paid personal  complement  to the "CATCH A WAVE" members for their tremendous detail. The unbelievable harmony work and blend. This show nails "spot on" the Southern California vocal surf sound so identified with The Beach Boys' music.
