On the Beach: Live
Formed in 1965, the now legendary California band, PAPA DOO RUN RUN, quickly discovered their forté - they could sound just like the Beach Boys! That sound led them to Jan & Dean, and from 1976-80 Papa toured North America as opening act and back-up band with the duo. In 1980, Papa graduated from J&D to the Beach Boys, and toured and recorded with that band throughout the next 2 decades. The group also had an unprecedented 15-year run as the 'Celebrity House Band' at Disneyland from 1975-90! Papa Doo Run Run's first major record release, 'Be True To Your School' (RCA, 1975), made the Billboard Hot 100 nationally and reached No. 1 in California. Their ground breaking CD 'California Project' (Telarc, 1985) exploded onto the Hot 100 Chart at no. 17, earning the band their second Gold Record and a Grammy Nomination. Additionally, Papa Doo Run Run appeared in, and recorded the soundtrack album for the CBS-TV movie 'Deadman's Curve'. The band currently has 7 CD releases. Today, Papa Doo Run Run's high-energy act focuses around their award winning re-creation of the hits of the Beach Boys, plus all the fun 'Classic Rock' party hits of the 60s and 70s. One of their best-kept secrets is that Papa Doo Run Run is who the Beach Boys call when they need someone to 'fill in' in their band. You're gonna LOVE their music!
