Adding a new dimension to the traditional band lineup, BEACH PANIC! is a surf-pop art project comprised of two musicians, Daniel Marinakis and Tom Mitchell, who share musical duties with alternative rockers Belle Haven, and creative mastermind and visual artist Yannica Stakelbeck-Keily. The group go by their own monikers, Tequila Sunrise (Yannica Stakelbeck-Keily), her long time partner Dr. M. Flamingo (Daniel Marinakis) and his best friend Daddy Longlegs (Tom Mitchell) whose lives converged in a creative household where the project was born.

The trio share a love for the charm and quirks of music from the 50s and 60s. The free loving, heart-on-your-sleeve themes mixed with hip shaking grooves is exactly what the members strive to bring together, and these elements have since become integral to the project. With the boys emotive punk rock upbringing and Yannica’s love for vintage style, the amalgamation of their hard hitting energy and groovy fashion sense makes BEACH PANIC! loud and confident. Together the band has created a special blend of tongue-in-cheek surf-pop rock music that bounces between being unabashedly honest and utterly rambunctious.
