The Surfer BoysCreated and Conceived by Brian Noonan
From the group that brought you The Jersey Tenors comes a spirited tribute to the band credited for creating pop music’s iconic “California Sound.” Four Broadway veterans bring The Beach Boys’ biggest hits to life with classics like “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” “Barbara Ann,” “Surfin’ USA," and many more you know and love. Filled with the honey-tinged harmonies and unforgettable melodies that defined 1960s California and pop music, The Surfer Boys will have you hangin’ ten in no time.
