The Beach Boys


The Beach Boys are an iconic American rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961, the group is comprised of Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, David Marks and Bruce Johnston. They are frequently cited as one of the most influential and commercially successful groups of all time, recognized for their complex vocal harmonies, studio innovations, and musical impact that is still felt today. After rising to stardom with a string of hits that defined the ’60s California Sound, they quickly delved into melancholy experimental pop, recording unorthodox arrangements with classical instruments. They have recorded 36 Billboard Top 40 hits (including four number-one singles), have had over 100 million sales, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.
