Harris Center presents the Jan and Dean show

Jan and Dean showBack in the ’60s surf music was riding the wave of success and among the most popular acts of the time were Jan and Dean and the Beach Boys. If you long for the day when radio stations played such memorable hits as “Surf City,” “Little Old Lady from Pasadena,” plus hits from the Beach Boys, including “Barbara Ann,” Harris Center for the Arts is proud to present a well-crafted, vocally impressive, high-energy classic California beach party, The Jan & Dean Show, featuring Dean Torrence and the Surf City All Stars.

Rounding out the touring personnel of the Surf City All Stars are current and former players and singers of the Brian Wilson band and the Beach Boys. Joining the inland beach are the Surfaris, playing “Wipeout,” “Hawaii 5-0” and many more hits plus comedy host John Wing.

The Jan and Dean Show with Dean Torrence, Surf City All Stars and Surfaris is Sunday, June 29 at 2 p.m.

Jan and Dean’s career is well documented in the annals of pop and surf music history. Their original run in the 1960s boasts an impressive 14 gold records and 26 chart records, including “Barbara Ann,” “The Little Old Lady from Pasadena,” “Dead Man’s Curve,” “Sidewalk Surfin’” and “Ride the Wild Surf.”

Their biggest hit “Surf City,” co-written by Jan & Dean and Beach Boys founder and musical genius Brian Wilson, was the first “surf music” record to reach No. 1 in the U.S.

Reformed in the 1980s after a successful summer tour with the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean toured the country and the world until Jan Berry’s untimely death in 2004. Carrying on with their legacy, Dean Torrence of Jan and Dean is proud to present The Jan and Dean Show.

Bob Berryhill, original guitarist of the surf rock group the Surfaris began his professional music career by co-composing and recording “Wipe Out,” one of the most popular and influential instrumental songs of all time, as recognized by Billboard Magazine and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“Wipe Out,” “Surfer Joe” and others captured the sound of the early 1960s. Initially catapulted by the California surf culture, the Surfaris transcended the local scene into international stardom. Bob continues to play the music and tell the amazing story behind the music of the Surfaris. The band just celebrated the 50th anniversary of “Wipe Out.”

Comedy host John Wing’s comedy career spans more than two decades and includes six Tonight Shows, nine Just For Laughs Comedy festivals, Five Winnipeg Comedy festivals and more than 150 television appearances.

He can be heard on CBC radio’s The Debaters and is a contributor to Definitely Not The Opera. Last year he created, co-wrote, and starred in the CBC radio sitcom, Man, Woman, & Child. A regular performer in Las Vegas, as well as cruise ships all over the world, Wing is also a the author of the comedy memoir, “When You See The Red Light, Get Off.” In 2013, Wing was a semi-finalist on the No. 1 ranked network TV series America’s Got Talent.
