Almost any modern-day attempt to recreate those Brian high vocal parts is going to sound, at times, a bit "shrill."

Let's also remember that Brian hit his peak in his *20's*, and most of the guys doing those parts now are in the 40s, 50s, and near 60s.

Eichenberger has to be in his early 40s at least; according to Wiki he joined the Four Freshmen in 1996. Assuming he was at least 20 years old when he joined, he's in his 40s.

Matt Jardine is around 50. Foskett has to be in his mid-late 50s at least.

Ike sounds good, but his style is so far removed from the "Beach Boys" style that, for me, it highlights even more the anonymous, tribute band sound Mike's band continually has.

I'm fine with Jeff's voice about 75% of the time. The worst he's ever sounded (the only time where I really couldn't listen) was here---
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_xSfwGc5Qw

Jeff's falsetto at the beginning is just so rough on the "I hear the sound" part. The rest of performance went fine--- UNTIL THE AUDIENCE CONTINUED CLAPPING AND IT WAS OFFBEAT AND F*CKED EVERYTHING UP! ... But that has nothing to do with Jeff...


Anyway, I usually don't mind Jeff's voice. I'd take him over Adrian Baker ANY DAY! Here's the worst clip I've ever heard of Baker--- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGt30M7yqlI&list=FLjLWTx2xziJVn8NZOaLBz5Q&index=1

Scott was doing the falsetto great, but Adrian was so nasal, it sounded like a Beach Boys parody.

I love Jeff's non-falsetto voice and in an ideal band, he'd be singing mid range parts with Matt on top with Brian's parts.
I am surprise Jeff is still doing the BWPS (And Im' Pickin Up") part with Mikes band. I never had a problem with Foskett vocally when he was in Brians band though his jokes were really tiring. Matt is a better singer by far.

I think Jeff's falsetto is pretty weak...serviceable, but still pretty weak.

Apparently Ike sang all the falsetto parts a couple of days ago at the columbia, mo show. Jeff was there but not singing.
