On Saturday Aug. 26, the classic sound of the Beach Boys returns once more to the Historic Hemet Theatre (HHT). Surf’s Up is Southern California’s favorite tribute band to the Beach Boys and a regular visitor to the valley, performing at several venues in the area. This will be the fourth time that the group has performed at HHT.
Surf’s Up has an incredible sound – you can close your eyes and match each note to the memory in the back of your mind, listening to those old vinyl records you played over and over again until the grooves were worn down.
The band consists of brothers Donny and Danny Goldberg, their father Don Goldberg Sr. and their cousin Denny Hardwick. They have been perfecting the Beach Boys sound for 25 years…literally since they were kids. Their harmonies capture the authentic blend of the Beach Boys, bringing the magical “Sound of Summer” to their performance.
If you have not visited the Historic Hemet Theatre for a concert, you are missing the chance to experience the best concert venue in the area. Audience members and performers comment that the auditorium’s acoustics are amazing. Add in comfortable seating, a large dance floor and a beer or glass of wine from the bar and you have the makings for the perfect concert night out. No need to drive to Temecula for a concert – the best venue around is right here in the historic downtown district of Hemet!
