Kahuna Beach Party is a musical celebration of the Beach Boys, a light-hearted tribute to the fun and optimistic feeling of the early 1960’s; a time of relaxing days spent at the beach, surf boards, fast cars and the promise of perpetual youth and beauty. Although so much has changed since then, this fast paced interactive show lets us relive that feeling for a couple of hours.
After a year of rehearsals, Kahuna Beach Party’s public debut was a series of concerts with the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra in Colorado, summer of 2007. They performed with two other symphony orchestras, all to rave reviews. They continue touring and building a fan base spanning all age groups in the Rocky Mountains, the Southwest and Mid-west, traveling to numerous state and county fairs, private and corporate events to perform for audiences numbering from 300 to 30,000. From his concept of drawing on seasoned musicians with a strong background in theater arts to create the Kahuna Beach Party characters, composer Bill Francoeur has led the collaborative effort with input from the performers to keep this show fresh, exciting and family friendly.
Kahuna Beach Party’s mission is to provide a fun entertainment experience for audiences and to build and maintain a positive, professional relationship with the client. When you engage these seasoned performers, be assured that the show will reflect positively on your organization and guests.
The Show Story:
Once upon a time, on an island FAR, FAR away, a bunch of rag tag musicians found each other...
While attempting to survive, knowing that they would most likely never be found, Cap'n Bill brought out his stack of 8 track beach band tapes for entertainment. The music was good, and it was something to do; so they divided up the parts and started practicing. After a time, they knew they had something special and if they were ever to be 'found', this was what they had to do! Before they could be 'discovered' they had to name the band. Something that would describe:
Where they were stranded - KAHUNA!
Where they lived - on the BEACH!
What they liked to do - PARTY!
Everyone is invited to the Kahuna Beach Party!
