Biography

California Surf, Inc. features four of LA’s finest musicians who all have a long history of touring and recording as former band members of the legendary Beach Boys; and the group will always include other players who share the same unique credit.

Principal members Bobby Figueroa (drums/vocals), Billy Hinsche(keyboards/guitar/vocals) Ed Carter (guitar/bass/vocals) and Matt Jardine (Percussion/Guitar?Lead Vocal) each has a distinctive career that includes performances with The Beach Boys at such iconic venues as The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, Maple Leaf Gardens (Canada), Wembley Stadium (UK) and many other venues around the world including the Reagan White House. Members have performed at historic rock ‘n’ roll celebrations including Live Aid, Farm Aid and other major events.

They have received RIAA certified Gold LP Records from the Beach Boys for their studio work on The Beach Boys In Concert, 15 Big Ones, Love You, Still Cruisin’ and the 30 Years Of The Beach Boys boxed set.

These fine players have consistently been involved with The Beach Boys’ live touring band throughout the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s and can be seen on many of the group’s televised performances such as Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, MTV videos for “Still Cruisin’” and “Kokomo” and on The Beach Boys’ 25th Anniversary TV Special from Hawaii.

These veterans of surf-rock are considered by many to be the “A Team” band for their skills and ability to perform these fun yet intricate
instrumental and vocal parts that are the hallmark of The Beach Boys’ sound. Over the years, members have shared the stage with Ringo Starr, Sir Elton John, Jimmy Page, Joe Walsh, Roger McGuinn, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Burton Cummings, America, Chicago, Ray Charles, The Everly Brothers, Three Dog Night, Jan & Dean and many, many others.

Their standard setlist includes all the great early Beach Boys’ songs such as “Surfer Girl,” “Little Deuce Coupe” and “Don’t Worry Baby” and also features a generous selection from the famous Pet Sounds LP with “God Only Knows,” wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “Sloop John B.” Their show rocks with a non-stop party of crowd-pleasing hits including “California Girls,” “Kokomo,” “Good Vibrations,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Surfin’ USA" and “Fun, Fun, Fun.”
