The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who, along with Jeffrey Foskett, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band. Grammy-winning songwriter Bruce Johnston joined The Beach Boys in 1965, replacing Glenn Campbell, who filled-in for Brian Wilson, on vocals/bass, when he retired from touring.

The Beach Boys average 150 shows a year, ranging from summer festivals and concerts, to gala New Year’s celebrations and special events across the globe. They have performed many times in recent  years in Dayton at both Fraze Pavilion and Rose Music Center.
