Jan and Dean

Jan Berry (b. April 3, 1941, Los Angeles) and Dean Torrence (b. March 10, 1940, Los Angeles) were a rock and roll duo briefly popular in the early 1960s as part of the "surf music" craze inspired by the Beach Boys. Their hits include "Surf City"(1963), "Little Old Lady From Pasadena"(1964) and "Dead Man's Curve"(1964).

Early in 1966 Jan was involved in a serious motor accident, which resulted in severe head injuries. As a result, the group did not perform again until 1973, and made an official comeback in 1978 on tour with the Beach Boys. The group occasionally tour still, with 1960s nostalgia providing them with a ready audience.
