At our travel conference, we had a concert with THE BEACH BOYS and we went to opening weekend of Star Wars at Disneyland!

Please enjoy my videos and photos from both events.

“The Beach Boys are an American rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group’s original lineup consisted of brothers BrianDennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine. Distinguished by their vocal harmonies and early surf songs, they are one of the most influential acts of the rock era.[1] The band drew on the music of jazz-based vocal groups, 1950s rock and roll, and black R&B to create their unique sound, and with Brian as composer, arrangerproducer, and de facto leader, they often incorporated classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways.”
