WAUKEGAN — The Lake County Community Concert Association and Live on Stage Inc., will present legendary beach music icons and Grammy-nominated recording artists, Papa Doo Run Run, in concert March 3 at 3 p.m. at the Orlin Trapp Auditorium at Waukegan High School, 2325 Brookside Ave.
Single tickets are $30 and available at the auditorium on the night of the performance, or by calling Donna (847) 244-7465.
Formed in 1965, Papa Doo Run Run’s earliest influences were surf music pioneers Jan and Dean. As their following grew, so did their prowess as a vocal band and the Beach Boys became the dominant influence. Through this association, the band has toured and recorded with various members of the Beach Boys.
Papa Doo Run Run held the coveted title of “Celebrity House Band” at Disneyland from 1975 to 1990 and by the mid-1980s had established themselves at the top tier of corporate entertainment, performing for dozens of Fortune 500 companies. Their 1985 recording “California Project” achieved a Top 20 position on Billboard’s Hot 100 and earned the band a Grammy nomination. Papa Doo Run Run has recorded 10 albums and earned two gold records.
Today, Papa Doo Run Run still performs worldwide. Their act encompasses all the great classic rock hits of the ‘60s and ‘70s, with a special emphasis on their award-winning re-creation of the hits of the Beach Boys. Their best kept secret? Papa Doo Run Run is who the Beach Boys call when they need someone to fill in their band.
