More Fun, Fun, Fun with the Beach Boys!

The Beach Boys

“Surf’s Up” at the Fred when the Beach Boys hit the stage on June 26 & 27 at the Fred in Peachtree City. What better way to spend a hot summer night than grooving to all of the beach tunes you know so well?

The Beach Boys first rode the waves of success in 1961 with their regional debut hit ‘Surfin.” By 1966 they had emerged as one of America’s top pop groups by releasing eleven top-10 singles in five years. They were made popular with hits like “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “Help me Rhonda,” “California Girls” and “Good Vibrations.”

The Beach Boys didn’t stop there. They released 29 full-length albums between 1962 and 1977, a dozen compilations and boxed sets, and numerous singles into the 90’s. The band’s biggest selling hit didn’t come until 1988 with “Kokomo.” The period between its release and the band’s first major album release “Good Vibrations” in 1966 is the longest span of time between number one records of any artist in history.

The Beach Boys were recently honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2001 Grammy Awards and by VH-1 which named 1966’s “Pet Sounds” as the #3 album in the Top 100 Albums in Rock n’ Roll History.
