To date they have total record sales of over 75 million. Since the 1971 departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career, the group has never stopped. Original member Barry (the Bean) Whitwam has guided the band from strength to strength into one of the hardest working acts in the business – they still average more than 200 gigs a year. The ‘Golden Oldies’ still make up most of their show – much to the enjoyment of their fans, who can’t resist singing along to ‘Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter’, ‘Silhouettes’, ‘Dandy’, ‘Henry VIII’ and many others.

Based in the UK, The Beached Boys have performed the music of the Beach Boys to many thousands of people over those years and are still probably the only Beach Boys Tribute to have Been joined on stage by original members of the Beach Boys. The idea to form a new band originated from a request from a television company for them to appear in a programme hosted by Ann Robinson based on American themes. The success of this appearance led them to rehearse a set of songs to take on the road. This was an instant success as bookings for shows and private functions. Their accurate harmonies and tight mix of two guitars, bass, drums and keyboard create the nostalgic feel of those fun days from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
