Sun, surf, and sand. Not the typical things you’d imagine when thinking about Chicago in the middle of winter. Yet, this is exactly what is coming to music fans at The Chicago Theatre on December 18, 2022, at 7:30 pm. This year, The Beach Boys are teaming up with The Holiday Vibrations Orchestra to bring you their ‘Tis the Season holiday tour spectacle, taking place across multiple cities along the east coast and Midwest, Chicago included.

Who are The Beach Boys?

Hailing from Hawthorne, California, in 1961, The Beach Boys are an iconic American music group that gained worldwide acclaim and commercial success over the past six decades. Signing with Capitol Records in July 1962, they released their first album during the same year. The album was called Surfin’ Safari and remains a classic to this day.

To date, they have sold over 100 million records worldwide and 80 of their songs have reached global music charts. Of these, 36 were featured in the US Top 40 (which is considered the highest number by a US rock band) as well as four that topped the Billboard Hot 100.

With their massive global success, they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. But that’s not all. They received The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award® as well.

With their easygoing style and fun lyrics and music tempo, they’ve influenced many artists, spanning different music genres over the decades. The album Pet Sounds, for example, was ranked number two on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Meanwhile, The Beach Boys band was ranked number 12 on its list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Their harmonies have been described as “brilliant” while their lyrics and musical arrangements have conveyed simple truths. Today, they represent Californian culture, exemplified by love, youthful exuberance, and surf culture.

The musical group was originally comprised of three teenage Wilson Brothers (Brian, Carl, and Dennis), in addition to their cousin Mike Love and school friend Al Jardine.
