Instruments Band/Group

The Surf City Allstar Band is basically the touring backup band for Jan & Dean. Most of these guys have been playing for Jan & Dean since the 80s.

Because of Jan Berry’s declining health during those years, Dean and his bandmates came to the sad realization that they were going to have to reorganize their future business minus their old friend Jan Berry if they intended to continue to play music together.

The core members went about contacting some of their old Jan & Dean Band alumni and gave them all an open-ended invitation to sit in with them whenever possible. They are all a part of one big musical family.

The Surf City Allstar Band has also begun the processes of experimenting musically with some second-generation family members. Most notably they have been adding into some of their shows the talents of Matt Jardine, the son of one of the original Beach Boys, Alan Jardine. And recently, they played with Rick Nelson’s sons, Matthew and Gunner.

The Surf City Allstar Band has also been busy contacting many of their old musical buddies and inviting them to come sit in any time that they are available. One of these guys, Skunk Baxter, guitarist for The Doobie Brothers, sat in with the band for this DVD.

The new show now also includes lots of audience participation. Audiences now have the unique opportunity to win some very special prizes including a brand new, out of the box, autographed Fender Stratocaster guitar and that even includes a strap and a pick!

The new show has also been experimenting with a healthy dose of comedy. The bizarre antics of Bobby Badfingers has been featured from time to time.
