The California Girls
possess a unique blend of Beach Boy like harmonies and guitar riffs
that even impressed legendary surf performer
Dick Dale. Combined with good looks, long legs, blonde
hair and a whole lot of talent, it’s no wonder that they are the first
pick to open for the Beach Boys
when on tour. During their first two performances with the
Girls, the Beach Boys started
their set with one of their songs, "California
Girls", and later having the Girls
up to sing with them on stage, and calling them the "California
Girls". The idea hit home, and they adopted the name from that point
The Girls have also
opened for the Surfaris, Steppenwolf,
The Drifters, The Platters, Red Bone,
Donny Brooks and host of other hit acts.
They have experienced a whirl-wind of traveling,
performing and recording. The last two years alone have kept them busy
doing USO shows throughout the world, playing for thousands of GIs.
The tours have covered Bosnia, Macedonia, Germany, Norway, Hungary,
Greenland, Iceland and most recently the Pacific Rim, including
Johnston Atoll, Hawaii, Kwajalein, Japan, Okinawa and Micronesia. In
2000 they were asked to perform at an event by the hit TV show "Bay
Watch" during which they wrote a new song - "Bay Watch Girl".
They also play for corporate events and in the show
rooms at The Venetian, The Hondah, The Orleans, Buffalo Bills, Prima
Donna, Nevada Landing, Avi, The Riveria and the Trump Plaza. They are
the perfect party band, delivering tons of memory rattling oldies that
help cross the generation gap, so that listeners and dancers of all
age groups are entertained.
The Girls are a
collection of sweet, very attractive, American "girl next door"
types. Their professional attitude, talent, love of good music and
flair for entertainment has made them a popular act resulting in being
asked for return engagements time and again.
