Preliminary details for The 36th Brian Wilson/Beach Boys Convention 2015.

Written By: LWDadmin - May• 27•15

Ladies & Gentlemen,
As I am sure most or all of you are aware the date originally set for the 36th event has been taken by one of the dates for the latest tour by Brian and his band. On the actual Saturday they are in fact in Cardiff. Had this been the London date, it could have made for an interesting part of the day’s events. To what extent I am not quite sure, but where there is a will there is a way. Although initially we were reluctant to alter the date in the end this did seem to be the best way forward. All being well, the Convention date for 2016 will be Saturday 17th September. This is the third Saturday in September as it should be.

Hopefully both Rick de Jongh and Brian Clarke will be with us. They were both absent last year as I am sure many of you noticed. This year’s “Special Guest” is, Bobby Figueroa, although it was announced in 2014 that we invited Ed Carter and Mike Kowalski. Ed was not able to fit in with the new arrangements. However, more of this later…

Date; – Saturday 10th October 2015.
Tickets;- Applications are now invited for tickets for the 36th event and are priced at £20-00 per person until the 15th September, after which they will be £25-00 each up to and including Convention day. Please make cheques payable to ‘Beach Boys Stomp’ enclosing a stamped and self addressed envelope to a minimum size of 8.5″ x 4.25″. PLEASE be very careful with this as anything smaller does create problems. If you are applying for more than TWO tickets would you please send a larger envelope and put a ‘large letter’ stamp on it. A booking form will be printed elsewhere. Please make sure you list the names of all applicants.
The address for tickets is 23, The Woolmead, East Street, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 7TT.
Badges;- Will follow the normal format but this year and will be back to the usual run of 100 pieces.
Entry;- The doors open at 11 o’clock for the customary warm up period of one hour before the Convention commences with the introduction being at 12 mid-day. Then it will be the normal six hour run finishing at 6 o’clock, sharp!

Location; – Following our return to the ‘spiritual home’ of the UK Conventions
in 2012, nearly all of you are aware of the venue address but just in case here it is –
Visitation Parish Centre, adjoining 358, Greenford Road, Greenford, Middlesex, UB6 9AN.
Accommodation ;- We are sure those of you who require accommodation are aware that there is a local hostelry on the north side of the A40M Greenford roundabout known as ‘The Bridge’. No one has brought any negatives to our attention regarding this venue and the address is – The Bridge Western Avenue, Greenford, Middlesex, UB6 8ST. Tel 0208-566-6246 or if you prefer <bridgehotel@youngs.co.uk>
Tables ;- The hiring of tables is now open to anyone who wants one. They measure 4′ by 2′ and are available at £35-00 each. To previous hirers and Stomp subscribers they cost £22 50 each. After the 15th September they are £35-00 to all. Please apply to the ‘Beach Boys Stomp’ address and enclose as S.S.A.E. In order to hire a table you must also purchase a day ticket.
ANYONE WISHING TO SELL OR TRADE ANYTHING MUST HAVE A TABLE!!!
Auction; – All being well items will not only be listed on the web-site but also in an ‘on the day programme leaflet’ ( a suggestion by Geoff Gilborson). Several items have been left over from 2014 and all being well we will be able to offer one or two others.
Raffle; – The ‘autographs’ idea for all the raffle prizes of the last few years has been very well received and we will continue with this format as long as we can. Please do remember the majority of the items autographed are NOT originals, most are photo-copies. The autographs are real. As a number of you who were at Greenford last year will remember not all the prizes were claimed. Although the missing numbers were placed on the web-site, none were taken. So for 2015 Geoff Gilborson has offered to produce a small information leaflet which will have all the intended prizes listed. If the event does over run you will be asked to list your prize preferences before you leave the venue.
Data Protection Act;- Introduced in 2007 so we would hope you are all aware of this. If you do not wish to have your picture taken and possibly printed in the magazine after a Convention. It is your responsibility to avoid Brain Clarke taking your picture. If you are not looking at the camera, or are part of a group photograph, then this D.P.A. does not apply.
Refreshments – Hopefully, as previously, the Centre will be able to provide light refreshments but this should be confirmed nearer the time. Please remember no-one is permitted to bring their own alcoholic drinks or other purchased drinks onto the premises!!!
Special Guest; – A change of ‘Special Guest’ has taken place for 2015 and we were very lucky to be able to overcome the problem caused by the change of date, in this situation. We now have immense pleasure in announcing that we will be joined by Mr. Bobby Figueroa who will be accompanied by his new wife Mrs. Jo-Anne Figueroa. Their attendance at the 36th Convention will in fact be part of their honeymoon. Interestingly enough Jo-Anne has in the past organised American Beach Boy fan conventions. So as usual, questions on the day in writing and also NO questions which relate in any way to a certain Mr. M!!
Timetable; – It is intended to place this both on the web-site and in the magazine before October. On the day it will be in the Convention leaflet.
Mobile Telephones; – The use of mobile telephones within any part of the event building is not permitted. Should you wish to receive or make a call you are asked to go outside the building.
Copyright; – Several years ago there was a significant problem relating to one of the Conventions and so entire event is now ‘copyrighted to Beach Boys Stomp’! No part of the event in any form – audio, print, photographic or film may be used in any form of re-production for promotion or reward without in the first instance seeking permission from ‘Beach Boys Stomp’ at the usual address.
THE ORGANIZERS RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE ANY ALTERATIONS OR ADJUSTMENTS THEY DEEM NECESSARY WITHOUT NOTICE!!!!!
Further information or updates will be posted on the web-site when and as they become available.
Roy Gudge Monday 25th May 2015.

THE BEACH BOYS CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF “SUMMER DAYS & SUMMER NIGHTS”

Written By: LWDadmin - May• 21•15

WITH UNFORGETTABLE  UK TOUR MAY 27th – JUNE 4th

ROYAL ALBERT HALL DATES WILL FEATURE
GRAMMY & OSCAR WINNNING ARTIST CHRISTOPHER CROSS
& STELLAR LINE-UP OF LONDON MUSICIANS

Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!) being re-released on Vinyl Summer 2015

LOS ANGELES, CA, MAY 4, 2015 — “America’s Band” The Beach Boys are bringing their Endless Summer Tour to a range of dates throughout the United Kingdom. Beginning May 27th, the band will tour Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham, Brighton, Cardiff and perform a special two-night stand at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall. (SEE BELOW FOR DATES, VENUES AND ON-SALE INFO.)

The Grammy® Award-winning and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band, The Beach Boys, features band co-founder, lead singer and songwriter, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Scott Totten, Jeffrey Foskett, Tim Bonhomme, and John Cowsill, as well as new member Brian Eichenberger (The Four Freshman). The tour coincides with a special celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the band’s beloved album Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!). The album, originally released July 5, 1965, includes the seminal hits “California Girls” and “Help Me, Rhonda.” Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) marked the first appearance of Bruce Johnston with its release 50 years ago.

For the band’s Royal Albert Hall dates (May 30-31), The Beach Boys will welcome special guest Academy-Award & Grammy winning artist Christopher Cross as well as a number of London’s finest musicians. The Royal Albert Hall shows will delve deep into the Beach Boys catalogue, with full brass arrangements and a focus on songs from Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!). Longtime Beach Boy guitarist David Marks will join the band for the entire UK leg of the tour.

“The UK has always had a special place in our hearts,” said Beach Boy co-founder, Mike Love. “I remember in 1966 a magazine put out a poll of their favorite bands and The Rolling Stones were number three, The Beatles were number two and we took the top spot. I’ve always loved traveling across the pond to visit our friends. And this time it’s going to be really special. I’m excited longtime friends Christopher and David are joining us, and honored to have these extraordinary musicians aboard. I love when our songs are elevated by the sounds of a full brass section. Something magical happens and it’s going to be a pretty magical run.”

The special “Beach Boys” Royal Albert Hall Band will feature Simon Morgan (French horn), Mike Lovatt (trumpet), Richard Edwards (tenor and bass trombone); Andy Findon (bass, baritone sax and flute), Chris Baron (drums and percussion), Martin Williams and Dave Bishop (alto sax and woodwinds). Collectively this ensemble of musicians has accompanied the likes of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Quincy Jones, Michael Bublé, Sting, Amy Winehouse and Stevie Wonder, London Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and scorings films including Harry Potter, Skyfall and The Dark Knight Trilogy.

The tour coincides with a special reissue of the classic Beach Boys album Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!!) on vinyl. Analogue Productions (in association with Capitol Records and Quality Record Pressings) will release this classic and historic Beach Boys album in its most premium and high-fidelity vinyl format to date. The album will hit select record stores later this summer.

The Beach Boys are in full force on a worldwide Endless Summer tour performing more than 140 dates in 2015 with a canon of songs that have been global radio and cultural staples for more than 50 years.
