We loved the show!! I enjoyed learning more about the legacy of The Beach Boys, as I listened to their music in the 80”s. My 8 year old son, clapped and swayed to the music. He loved experiencing different types of music from different artists. The entertainers were very friendly and enjoyed talking to the crowd after the show.

"If you enjoy the sounds of the 60s and 70s beach tunes this is for you."

I have read some of the other reviews. They are not saying they are the Beach Boys. They are singing the songs of the Beach Boys and others that sang those Beach Tunes. They did an excellent job the telling the history of the Beach sounds. It is just a great show to go and hear some of your favorite Beach Tunes. You will leave with many tunes you just can't get out of your head and be singing the songs all night long.

My wife and I came to see this 10 AM show, so it had to be good or I was in trouble for making her get around so early. Fortunately, they delivered and kept me out of the doghouse! I was very impressed with the vocal range of the performers and the variety of songs that were performed that were in addition to Beach Boys songs. The rendition of California Dreamin' was done very well. I have seen some comments about not being 5 guys, but I think if you judge these performers on their own merits, you will be pleasantly surprised.

"Window to the 60's"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Musical show set to the 60's in very comfortable, reserved seating setting. Arrived 45 minutes ahead of show time for very easy parking and voucher redemption for tickets. Our travel party was two married couples, all between 60 and 70. Plenty of HC parking for walking disabled or easy drop off for same. Easy wait ahead of show time. Excellent live vocals set to recorded instrumental tracks of great 60's music, primarily by the Beach Boys. Vocalists are two males and two females. There is very good representation of styles of the 60's. High enthusiasm of performers. Short 15 minute intermission. About 2 hours total. Would recommend to any Beach Boys or 60s fan.
