Good Vibrations

The Beach Boys performing in Peachtree City

I knew I was in for some good vibrations when the boss asked me to introduce the Beach Boys on a Friday night at the Fred Amphitheater in Peachtree City.   The ‘Fred’ is a beautiful place to see a concert and you can get there by car or golf cart.  Yeah Peachtree City is the golf cart capital of the world and believe it or not the Beach Boys traded in their surfboards for golf carts before the show.  Band members Mike Love and Bruce Johnston told me they had a blast surfing around town on four wheels.  They also had FUN, FUN, FUN performing before thousands of fans.

My wife Angie and I not only enjoyed the show, but we had the opportunity to hang out with the Beach Boys backstage before the show.  They were so laid back and told us they never get tired of performing.   They’ve been entertaining fans since 1961 and they have no intentions of slowing down.  I would have to say that my favorite Beach Boys songs are Barbara Ann and California Girls.   Mike Love told me their most requested song at concerts is Kokomo. 

 ‘God Only Knows’ if the Beach Boys will return to Georgia next year, but if they do you may want cruise on out to see them in concert.
