On Saturday, Aug. 25, SplashBack! will be ridin’ their sound waves onto the Athens Theatre stage with their ultimate tribute to the legendary surf rock band The Beach Boys.
SplashBack! captures the feel, the vocal harmonies, the fun and the excitement of a real Beach Boys concert, rounding out the show by performing many other surf and car songs inspired by the Beach Boys.
Peter Alden fronts the band with his strong vocals, stage presence and sense of humor! He is joined on stage by some of the finest musicians in the area.
Charlie DeCosa brings fun and excitement on lead guitar and fantastic high-end vocals.
Jim Rast not only provides a foundation for the band on bass, he is also the vocal coach for the band, and is responsible for them duplicating the five-part harmonies so loved by Beach Boys fans!
Willie Rast is incredible on keyboard, creating the sounds of piano, strings and horns heard on many Beach Boys hits, as well as helping out with backing vocals.
Keith Coville on percussion furnishes the beat and drive behind the band. He keeps the excitement going and gets people on their feet.
SplashBack! utilizes five-part harmonies to duplicate the sound of the Beach Boys as realistically as possible. From “Surfin’ USA” and “Little Deuce Coupe,” to “Kokomo,” the group covers a huge portion of the Beach Boys catalog, as well as other surf hits that were common to the era.
It’s hard to stay in your seat when this band hits the stage! Join us as we SplashBack! to the 1960s and experience the great surf and car music and fun of the Beach Boys in their prime.
