The UK Beach Boys are Ian Baker, Dacre Peck, Ben Whiston and Paul Johnson and with original members Simon West, Steve Stiles and Pete Phipps, were formed at the end of 2001, as they all had an interest in The Beach Boys and their music. Some twelve years later with some line-up changes the band are currently touring throughout the UK and Europe.
The UK Beach Boys were rehearsed under the watchful eye of Adrian Baker, who was a member of The Beach Boys for several years, recorded albums with Mike Love and was touring with them until April 2004. Adrian was in the UK in the new year of 2002 giving advice to their UK counterparts to ensure a sound as authentic as possible.

The band has now established itself as one of the UK's top tributes and featured at leading festivals, theatres and for many satisfied clients at prestigious "blue-chip" corporate events. Demand has increased since the release of their "live" CD and the resurgence of the popularity of Brian Wilson with the release of "SMILE" in 2004. 2004 also saw the launch of their new THEATRE SHOW, "KEEPING THE SUMMER ALIVE" which has been playing to theatre audiences throughout the UK to excellent reviews. The UK BEACH BOYS were also privileged to be invited to join The Beach Boys on stage at Thetford during their brief visit to the UK in the summer of 2003.
