  Papa Doo Run Run - booking information

  Papa Doo Run Run - booking information

Papa Doo Run Run performs all the feel-good classic rock of the 60's and 70's
with a special emphasis on the California music hits of The Beach Boys.

  Papa Doo Run Run 2001 - booking information  The year was 1965. The air was clean, music refreshingly innocent, and in Cupertino, California, a small, pre-Silicon Valley town just south of San Francisco near Santa Cruz, four high school buddies got together to form a garage band. This was not just any garage band – this band was special.

They would succeed where others would fail – they would continue where others would die off. They had a focus where others bands just rambled. They wore suits!

They believed that "good enough" never was. They practiced their four part harmony until their throats bled – and it paid off. Papa Doo Run Run established a solid performance schedule, playing as many as 200 dates a year, covering North America and two other continents, and a ton of island resorts.

  Papa Doo Run Run - booking information  During their humble beginnings in the 60's and 70's, they performed at nearly every high school and college in California. Some of Papa Doo Run Run's opening acts in the early days included Van Halen and The Doobie Brothers, when those bands were still in their garage band stage.

After meeting limited success with a few recording ventures in the 60's and 70's, Papa Doo Run Run caught the big wave with "Be True To Your School," produced by their friend Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys. That single made the top 40 charts nationally, and No. 1 in California, earning them "Kahuna" status among the veteran surf legends of the day. The flip side was a song called "Disney Girls," which opened the door for what was to become a 15 year run at Disneyland as the "celebrity house band."

Throughout the late 70's Papa Doo Run Run toured with Jan & Dean as their opening act and back-up band, and in the 80's toured and recorded with members of the Beach Boys. They have also appeared in concert with such luminaries as Roy Orbison, Fleetwood Mac, Kenny Loggins, Chicago, The Beach Boys, and many more huge names. Their most notable performances include two Olympics, six Super Bowls, and two Inaugurations. In 1988 Papa was dubbed "California's Band" by California's then Governor Dukmejian, and in 1992 they added a former member of The Beach Boys to their permanent line-up.

Papa Doo Run Run today includes: Don Zirilli – keyboards and vocals, Jim Rush – bass and vocals, (both of whom are original members since 1965), Jeffrey Foskett guitar and vocals, who joined Papa after his 10 year stint as a member of The Beach Boys (1980-90), plus Bobby Gothar – guitar and vocals, who has shared the stage with Lee Greenwood, Merle Haggard, and Charlie Daniels, and studio drummer Bo Fox, who throughout the 80's toured with Jimmy Buffett, and The Eagles.
