Instant Replay Shoot July 4th, 2007

Our recent shoot of Instant Replay on July 4th, 2007 at the Lake Forest Keys, will be online soon!

Band Bio:

"Instant Replay" began at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, California. Jim Mutschler and Brian Brehm were part of the school band and Dweighn Secrist was in the choir.

The band was origionally called "The Surf City Boys".The band was the first tribute band to impersonate the Beach Boys, complete with 5 part harmonys, pin stripped shirts, white pants and all the schtick of the Beach Boys. After a well received performance at a school talent show, they entered a talent show for Surf City..Huntington Beach, California. The band took first prize.

Bill Medley of "The Righteous Brothers" was in the audience and he hired the band on the spot for several shows at his night club. Mr. Medley then called the entertainment department at Knotts Berry Farm and arranged a meeting for the band. The Surf city Boys spent the next 4 years performing their tribute to the Beach Boys at Knotts Berry Farm. At one of the shows, John Stamos came up and played with the band and has remained good friends ever since.

It was'nt long before a representative from Disneyland's entertainment department came calling. They started to groom and prepare the band for employment at Disney's Club Buzz stage. At that time the band offered the band name, "Surf City", to the "Surf City Allstars" and then became known as "Instant Replay". The band specialized in costumed tributes to the Surfin' 60's, Classic rock, Disco and 80's..every set was a different era in costumes.

Jeff Woodhouse relocated his band from Olympia, Washington to Los Angeles. After several years of success with his band, an agent had told him of a vacancy in "Instant Replay"...he was a great addition to the group. Three years ago Disney put out a call for all the southern California surf bands to compete for 3 openings at "Disney's California Adventure" park. Out of 9 bands "Instant Replay", "Surf Party" and "The Surf City Allstars" took the honors.

The band has been enjoying our stay at Disney's California Adventure" ever since. On March 19th, 2006..John Stamos invited all of the top surf band musicians over the past 40 years to his hill top home in Beverly Hills for the ultimate surf jam... sponsored by Gibson Guitars. Other groups heard of it and were invited as well.

Among those to perform were "The Beach Boys", "Pappa Doo Run Run", "The Cowsills", "The Surf City Allstars", "America", Doug Fieger of "The Knack" and "Instant Replay". It was truley a one of a kind evening that won't soon be forgotten..Thank you, John....from your friends in "Instant Replay" .
