I think I pretty well answered Kent's original question - the song was  
"Second Line" AKA "(Paul) Barbarin's Second Line" which is a New  
Orleans Brass Band standard. It is a song very similar to "Over The  
Waves" and "South Rampart Street Parade" in structure.

  Barbarin is often pronounced "Bar-BAR-Ann" although I have also  
heard it as "Bar-Ber-Rin."

Unless there is some new trend in New Orleans Jazz pick-up bands  
playing Beach Boys tunes (unlikely! ;-)

(BTW, I sent Kent a sound file of a "Second Line" version off list..)
