The Brighton Beach Boys



Here’s a little video of Gimme Shelter from our 1969/Abbey Road gig in Brighton Festival 2019, featuring Jono Harrison and Sarah Tohill. We will be performing this and many other songs in our gig in Henfield Village Hall for our ‘Summer Of Love gig,’  on 20th July, and on Beatles poster it should take you to our French video!

Welcome to the website of The Brighton Beach Boys.


Let It Be is the album which was the result of the filmed rehearsals, captured in all their gory detail by Michael Lindsey-Hogg, and then returned to some balance through the archiving masterclass created by Peter Jackson. 

The music marked a return to rock n roll, with each song written to be performed live. The songs are shaped by this choice, with folk and blues flavours emerging to replace the psychedelic themes found in the albums which immediately preceded this recording. Classic Beatles tunes appear throughout the album, with “Dig a Pony”, “Across the Universe” and “I, Me Mine” shaping the early exchanges before Paul McCartney takes over with “Let It Be” and “The Long and Winding Road”. 

Paired with “Let It Be” comes the pop classic of Abbey Road. Recorded after the combustable session for Let It Be, this sees the band return to the Pop sensibilities that shaped the melodic invention of The Beatles (the white album) and the songs collected for the original sound track of Yellow Submarine. 

This collection of songs marked the end of The Beatles as a collaborative and creative venture, and the songs allow the band to depart the cultural stage on a high. Something is a stone cold classic, becoming one of the most covered songs in popular music history. "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" is the longest song recorded by The Beatles and offers a glimpse of the psychodramas that shaped Lennon for the rest of his career. The second side is marked by the medley that completes the album, leaving the audience to enjoy a natural and sustained high. An unmissable treat.
