Papa Doo Run Run

Formed in 1965, the now legendary California band, PAPA DOO RUN RUN, quickly discovered their forté - they could sound just like the Beach Boys! That sound caught the attention of surf music icons, Jan & Dean, and from 1976-80 PDRR toured North America as opening act and back-up band with the celebrated duo. In 1981, PDRR graduated from J&D to the Beach Boys, and performed and recorded with members of that band throughout the next 2 decades. The group also had an unprecedented 15-year run as the "Celebrity House Band" at Disneyland from 1975-90.

PDRR’s first major record release, “Be True To Your School” (Produced by Beach Boy Bruce Johnston - RCA, 1975), made the Billboard Hot 100 nationally and reached No. 1 in California. Their ground-breaking CD “California Project” (Telarc, 1985) exploded onto the Hot 100 Chart at no. 17, earning the band their second Gold Record and a Grammy Nomination. Additionally, they appeared in, and recorded the soundtrack album for the CBS-TV movie “Deadman’s Curve”. Other accolades include PDRR's 2007 induction into the N. California Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The band currently has 10 CD releases as well as a full length DVD, and 3 songs in regular rotation on XM & Sirius Satellite Radio (the Margaritaville station). One of their best-kept secrets… Papa Doo Run Run is who the Beach Boys call when they need someone to “fill in” in their band.
