Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band The Beach Boys are headlining a concert at the Beaver Dam Amphitheater on August 12, and they’ll be joined by the Owensboro Symphony.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m., and the show begins at 7. Tickets go on sale here to the general public at 9 a.m. Saturday.
“Since day one, we’ve always had a regional approach with our tourism efforts and programming at The DAM,” said Paul Sandefur, Mayor of Beaver Dam. “We’ve also wanted to bring the Symphony to Beaver Dam for a show. This will be the perfect culmination of those efforts. We are thrilled to present our first Symphony show with The Beach Boys and the Owensboro Symphony. To say this will be a spectacular evening is a gross understatement.”
The Beach Boys is led by Mike Love, an original member of the band. He penned the iconic first hit Surfin’ and co-wrote the classics Fun, Fun, Fun, I Get Around, Help Me Rhonda, California Girls and the Grammy-nominated Good Vibrations.
The band’s current lineup also includes longtime member Bruce Johnston, musical director Scott Totten, Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher, and Randy Leago. They maintain a busy schedule of concerts, averaging 150 shows a year.
The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The group was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2001 Grammy Awards.
The Owensboro Symphony performed its first concert in 1966, and today continues to present a broad range of programs and services for the region it serves. Professional, classically trained musicians are engaged to perform and deliver the orchestra’s mission: to create meaningful, imaginative performances and educational programs that enrich lives and create memorable experiences.
