Could the Beach Boys possibly be celebrating their 50th anniversary?  Has their super music making machine been cranking out hits for five decades?  Are they still wearing their trademark loud floral Hawaiian style shirts?  The answers to the trio of questions are all a resounding yes.

Get ready to go “Surfin’ USA” with the guys who made it their reason to be when the Beach Boys bring their unique California style to Sacred Heart University. Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts will celebrate these rock and roll icons for one performance only on Saturday, April 12 at 8 p.m.

“Wouldn’t It Be Nice” to have “Fun, Fun, Fun”  as the “Good Vibrations” invade all their rousing “Rock and Roll Music.”  Called “America’s Band,” the original group consisted of three brothers, Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love and a good friend Al Jardine.  They were good old California boys who made surfing cool and California girls objects of love.  In 1988, the core group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Having sold more than 100 million records, in 2004 the group was number 12 on Rolling Stones magazine’s list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

At Sacred Heart, you will hear Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks croon the tunes that made them famous.  Come sing along to “Kokomo,” “God Only Knows,” “Help Me Rhoda,” “Surfin’ USA,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Cool Cool Water,” “I Get Around,” “Barbara Ann,” “Surf’s Up” and “It’s a Beautiful Day,” to name but a few.

For tickets ($50), call the Edgerton Center, Sacred Heart University, 5151 Park Avenue, Fairfield at 203-371-7908 or online at

Wear your loudest sports shirt and your coolest smile and mosey over to lock lips with this great group that has been making merry music for many decades.
