Beach Boys scheduled to appear at Quakertown’s Univest Center


As The Beach Boys mark more than a half century of making music, the group which is synonymous with the California lifestyle will perform Friday, Aug. 28, at the Univest Performance Center in Quakertown.

Since lead-singer man Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’” (1961), dozens of the band’s chart toppers have become eternal anthems of American youth: “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “Kokomo.”

The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers were also honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

With more than five decades of touring under their belts, The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history.

“Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys,” Capitol/EMI’s 30-track collection of the band’s biggest hits, has achieved triple-platinum success with sales of more than three million copies in the U.S. since its release.

The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love, who, along with longtime member Bruce Johnston, musical director Scott Totten, Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher and Randy Leago continue the legacy of the iconic band. This concert will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.

The Sounds of Summer Concert Series presented by Sands Auto features a variety of artists from country, classic rock, pop, and more.

For the summer of 2020, the Univest Performance Center will present six concerts, headlining even larger names than past summers. Grammy winning and nine-time nominee Gretchen Wilson will kick off the concert series on June 19. All other concerts will be announced in the coming weeks.

The intimate and scenic venue offers exceptional views from every location, either in the general admission lawn area or in a reserved seat. The Univest Performance Center can comfortably accommodate 2,500 people while providing all essential amenities, such as restrooms, concessions, libations, merchandise, plenty of parking, and is ADA compliant.
