About The Driftwoods:The Driftwoods are the East Coast's original Beach Boys tribute band. Since the mid-'60s, their legendary vocal harmonies and rock n' roll rhythms have entertained legions of fans, from the casual listener to the veteran rock musician. Over the years, performances by The Driftwoods have earned them recording contracts, TV appearances, and studio vocal sessions. In addition, the band also performs as an opening act for well-known national artists. In 1965 the band opened for Gary Lewis & The Playboys, and in 1999 they were featured as the opening act for The Rascals. Today, The Driftwoods continue to bring you the sounds of their "Endless Summer" on the live stage. So grab your board, and catch "The Wave of a Lifetime" with Rhode Island's own Beach Boys tribute band, The Driftwoods!
