The Beach Boys coming to the MACC

By Staff | Jan 2, 2014

The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and performed more concerts than any major rock band in history. 

KAHULUI – It’ll be “Fun Fun Fun” when The Beach Boys return for a “Surfin’ Safari” concert in the A&B Amphitheater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on Friday, Jan. 10, at 7 p.m.

The Beach Boys made the music that is known worldwide as the favorite “soundtrack to summer.” From humble roots in Southern California in 1962, The Beach Boys became a beloved American institution and an international sensation.

The band has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. They are now America’s first pop band to reach the 50-year milestone!

As The Beach Boys mark more than a half century of making music, the group continues to ride the crest of a wave unequaled in America’s musical history.

Since lead singer Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’ ” in 1961, the band has had a string of chart-topping songs and albums, including some that have become eternal anthems of American youth and endless summers: “Surfin’ Safari,” “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Kokomo,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Good Vibrations,” “I Get Around,” “Catch a Wave,” “Do You Wanna Dance,” “409,” “California Girls,” “Help Me, Rhonda” and many more.

Every year, The Wharf Cinema Center’s Shops and Restaurants welcome the holiday season with a friendly Best Decorated Storefront Contest. The winners receive Wharf Bucks, and shoppers enjoy the beautifully decorated storefronts for the holidays. This year’s theme was “Surfing with Santa at The Wharf,” and the winner was Three D Gallery (pictured), followed by Simon-Jon Gallery in second and KC Hawaiian Fashions in third.

This iconic band is still led by founding member Mike Love and 40-plus-year veteran Bruce Johnston, along with Christian Love, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten.

Tickets prices are $45, $55, $65 and $85, with a limited number of $125 tickets for reserved/table seating. Call 242-SHOW or visit www.mauiarts.org.
