The band that changed the pop musical landscape, The Beach Boys, will perform at The Cannery Casino & Hotel on Saturday, October 4, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.
Bringing concert presence, spirit and performance that few, if any, acts can match, The Beach Boys’ music originally gained international popularity for its close vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a Southern California youth culture of surfing, cars and romance. Songwriting rooted in doo-wop, rhythm and blues, and 1950s rock and roll, led the band to experiment with several genres ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic and baroque while devising novel approaches to studio arranging, record production, and vocal jazz harmony.
After double platinum albums, a torrent of hit singles and albums sold by the tens of millions, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut 50 years ago.
Even more than the Beatles, The Beach Boys found through their music the key to unfading youth — and they made copies for everyone. To these guys, the beach isn’t just a place where the surf comes to play — it’s where life is renewed and made whole again.
Had this remarkable band been less committed to its art and its fans, it could have retired from the field with honor at dozens of points along the way, confident that it had made a lasting contribution to world culture. It could have rested on the success of the epoch-shifting Pet Sounds masterpiece in 1966, or after recording Love’s co-written
Golden Globe nominated “Kokomo” in 1988 and seeing it become its bestselling single ever, or after being inducted that same year into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, or after watching its worldwide album sales blow past l00 million, or even after winning the NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001. And still, The Beach Boys continue to have fun, fun, fun, with no end in sight.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with
Christian Love, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band playing songs such as “Surfin’,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” “Kokomo.”
