Bands pay tribute to Beach Boy Dennis Wilson at London night
A host of bands played tribute to Dennis Wilson in London this week (June 30).

The acts gathered at The Social's Pacific Ocean Blue night, covering the former Beach Boy's songs.

Starsailor's James Walsh – who was celebrating after becoming a father for the second time earlier that day – covered 'River Song' and 'You Are So Beautiful', along with playing his own 'Lullaby'.

The Loose Salute took on 'Pacific Ocean Blue' and 'Time', and were then joined by Pete Greenwood on their own track 'Death Club'. Jersey Budd played 'Rainbows'.

Ed Harcourt performed 'Forever' and 'Carry Me Home', while The Magic Numbers covered 'Thoughts Of You', 'He's a Bum' and then played their own song 'I See You, You See Me'.

The organisers of the Dennis Wilson tribute night will stage a similar evening at the venue later in the summer.
