About Wally & The Beaves

Born out of a mutual love of the music and pop culture from the 50’s and 60’s, Wally & The Beaves formed in the spring of 2011 by six of the most respected artists and musicians in the Pacific Northwest.  Their unique show has been gaining a loyal following ever since.  Each member of the band brings a bit of humor by dressing like well-known iconic characters from the era.  There is Buddy Holly, a soda jerk, the “Rebel Without a Cause”, Roy Rogers, the Hawaiian beach bum and beehive hairdo original, Polkie Dottie.  Audiences are encouraged to come dressed like their favorite character as well.

Danny Vernon joined The Wally’s on vocals and guitar after establishing himself as one of the top Elvis tribute artists in the world.  His “Illusion of Elvis” show has been seen by hundreds of thousands of people all across North America.

Enter the soda jerk, Mark Devos on keyboards and vocals.  He has toured with Legends in Concert, Superstars Live, Groovola, The Goods, and That 80’s Show.  He brings his own unique blend of showmanship to the band with his many impeccable artist impressions including The Blues Brothers, Tom Jones, and Dean Martin.

David Christensen always brings his smile and entertains crowds with his Mick Jagger tribute.

Randy Linder, appearing as a Flower Child from the late 60's, brings decades of experience to the stage and is well known across the US for his Tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Vivian Dubois is sure to entertain with her wide range of vocal and guitar abilities and her unstoppable energy.

Laying down steady rhythms on drums and backing vocals is the “Rebel Without A Cause”, Wade Reeves.  His thirty-two years of performing live and in the studio includes playing with and opening for groups such as The Beach Boys, Richard Marx, The Romantics, Billy Ray
Cyrus, Tom Connely, and Charlie Daniels.

Grooving on the bass, our resident surf expert, Osama Afifi has performed with The Cadillacs, The 5th Dimension, Yanni, Vanessa Paradis, Billy Preston, and has even appeared on VH1’s show “Storytellers” with The Doors.   

Wailing on the sax and backing vocals, Wayne Ledbetter, dressed like the “King of the Cowboys”, Roy Rogers, has performed with The Drifters, Don Wilson (founding member of The Ventures), Arturo Sandoval, Stanley Turrentine, Ramsey Lewis and many more.

From Dean Martin to The Beatles via Ray Charles and Ricky Nelson, Wally & The Beaves are sure to put on an entertaining show.
