Since the band’s co-founder, lead-singer and chief lyricist Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’” (1961), dozens of the bands chart toppers have become eternal anthems of American youth: “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “Kokomo.”
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love, who, along with longtime member Bruce Johnston, musical director Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, Jon Bolton, Keith Hubacher, Randy Leago and John Wedemeyer continue the legacy of the iconic band.
The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The Rock And Roll Hall of Famers were also honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award. With more than five decades of touring under their belts, The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history.
“Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys,” Capitol/EMI's 30-track collection of the band's biggest hits, has achieved triple-platinum success with sales of more than three million copies in the U.S. since its release.
The Beach Boys recently released “Sail On Sailor – 1972,” a new expansive box set that celebrates and dives deep into their transformative and fruitful 1972 era. The comprehensive collection, which was named one of the best box sets of 2022 by Rolling Stone and The New York Times, boasts newly remastered versions of studio albums and a reproduction of the “Mount Vernon and Fairway (A Fairytale)” EP. It also includes unreleased live concert recorded at Carnegie Hall on Thanksgiving, 1972.
The box set includes a bounty of unreleased outtakes, live recordings, radio promos, alternate versions, isolated backing tracks and a cappella versions, culled from the historic album sessions.
Most recently, The Beach Boys were honored in the CBS tribute special “Grammy Salute to the Beach Boys,” which featured performances from Beck, Brandi Carlile, Michael McDonald, Pentatonix, Norah Jones, John Legend, and Mumford & Sons among others.
The Beach Boys recently embarked on the second voyage of The Beach Boys Good Vibrations Cruise, which sailed from Miami, to Harvest Caye, Belize and Costa Maya, Mexico, aboard the Norwegian Pearl.
