The Lodi Community Concert Association Presents: The Blackwood Brothers Quartet was formed in 1934 with brothers Roy, Doyle, James and Roy's son, R.W. In the late 50s Roy and Doyle retired from traveling and in 1954 R.W. was killed in a tragic airplane crash. However the quartet with James, as the quartet's leader and spokesman, established a new group of singers who would go on to take Gospel music to new heights as they traveled and sang in all fifty of the United States, every Canadian province as well as cities in Great Britain, Europe, the Middle East, Northern Africa, South Africa, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
In 2002, James Blackwood went to be with the Lord, but his sons, Jimmy (James Jr.) and Billy have continued the 80-year tradition. Recently Jimmy retired after singing for 49 years and his younger brother, Billy now carries on the quartet which has the distinction of being the best-known name in Gospel Music history!

Mike Amaral grew up in Santa Cruz and San Jose, California. After starting a couple of bands as a youth, he then chose a career in law enforcement, but always wanted a Beach Boys band…His favorite music. After an early retirement Mike gathered a couple of cousins and other musicians to begin his longtime dream and founded the six piece California Beach Boys band in 2007. The band’s goal from the beginning was to replicate the music just like the originals, therefore giving their audiences a true Beach Boys Experience! “We want the audience members to feel like they’re at a 1960’s Beach Boys Concert, including authentic outfits, equipment and of course those famous harmonies” says Amaral. According to John Zurflueh, their agent for the past six years “They have certainly attained all they set out to do, but continue to improve. Of course, there is no more fun music around; the songs, the energy, audience participation and the standing ovations at packed theatres say it all. You really don’t want to miss this one.” www.californiabeachboys.com
