BEAVER CREEK — The Vilar Performing Arts Center welcomes the famous harmonies and classic songs of The Beach Boys on Monday and Tuesday. Often regarded as the most iconic American band and one of the most widely influential bands in history, The Beach Boys continue to travel the world bringing “Good Vibrations” everywhere.
The group has had more than 80 songs chart worldwide, 36 of them top-40 hits in the United States (the most by an American rock band) and four reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The Beach Boys have sold in excess of 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, and were listed at No. 12 on Rolling Stone magazine’s 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
Hall of Fame Members
The Beach Boys have received one Grammy Award for “The Smile Sessions” (2011), and the core quintet of the three Wilsons (Brian, Dennis and Carl), Mike Love and Al Jardine were inducted into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.
Performing music from their earliest surf-rock classics to masterpieces such as “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “God Only Knows,” to later hits including “Kokomo,” The Beach Boys remain legendary for their millions of fans spanning multiple generations. They are known today for playing and singing with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut 50 years ago.
The Beach Boys are led by original members Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Jeffrey Foskett, Brian Eichenburger, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band and will be “Surfin’ U.S.A.” during these epic performances at the Vilar. This tour will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.

Jon Ross Asper, “Jon Jon” to most of us — a man so nice we named him twice — loved family, friends, firefighting and fermentation. Family, friends and firefighting were often interchangeable. Family is who you say it is. Jon Jon’s family was as big as his enormous heart and included anyone within the sound of his booming bass voice.
