"Nothing beats playing on home turf," admits founding member of The Brighton Beach Boys, Ralph Brown.

"We love performing in Brighton. It's our home town and we always get a fantastic reception. We really appreciate people turning out on Christmas Eve to see us and will definitely be playing some festive favourites."

Since their conception three years ago, over a drunken conservation in Kemp Town's Hanbury Arms, the band have learned to adapt and tailor shows to suit the audience.

"We did an awards ceremony recently at the Royal Courts of Justice in London," says Brown. "Graham Norton was compere but, instead of the hour they booked us for, we only ended up doing about 40 minutes. They just weren't interested in any songs they didn't know and only wanted us to play the numbers they could sing along to."

The band's growing popularity owes much to the enduring popularity of the original tunes, a fact not lost on Brown, who applauds the variety of the crowd who turn up to their gigs.

"I love the mix," he says. "Our audience range from teens through to people in their 70s. There's a big cross-section, all united by our love of The Beach Boys' music."

One thing's for sure. Come snow, rain or shine, Good Vibrations happen with this band all year round.
