About The Beach Boys
The Beach Boys formed in 1961 and became the poster boys of the California surf sound. The debut album, Surfin’ Safari was released in 1962 and was followed by Surfin’ USA and Surfer Girl.
The original Beach Boys line-up comprised brothers Brian, Carl and, the late, Dennis Wilson, Mike Love and Al Jardine.
During their charts reign throughout the 1960’s The Beach Boys enjoyed hits with Surfin’ USA, Fun Fun Fun, I Get Around and Help Me Ronda.
But it was the 1966 album, Pet Sounds, that would prove to become the band’s seminal album. Pet Sounds was an elaborate production and turning point for the band with tracks such as God Only Knows, Sloop John B and Wouldn’t It Be Nice. Pet Sounds has been voted ‘one of the most influential albums of all time.’
In 2012 The Beach Boys celebrated their 50th anniversary with two shows in the UK at Wembley Arena and the Royal Albert Hall. The shows saw the band reunite with former lead singer and songwriter Brian Wilson.
The Beach Boys are currently touring America with the line-up consisting of original member Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who joined in 1965, with supporting musicians John Cowsill, Tim Bonhomee, Randell Kirsch, Scott Totten and Christian Love.
