Who sings "Then I Kissed Her" at their shows?  for that matter, I'd love a breakdown of who sings what from one of the posted setlists.

Attended a daytime show at Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA yesterday. 

The band took the stage at 3pm.  It was a pleasant surprise to see David Marks onstage with the group. 

The good:

The band was great.  I honestly went into this show with low expectations after seeing Brian two months ago.  But, I have to say that they did a great job recreating the classic BB sound. 

A two hour setlist of over 40 songs with some surprises - Farmer's Daughter, Good to My Baby, I'm So Young (I've been trying my best to avoid setlists)

I really liked the presentation with the vintage footage on the video board.  The tribute to Carl is very touching.  I also liked how the band intro was the original version of Surfin merging with the current live group.  That was neat, and a nice way to open the show. 

The bad:

Not much of a tribute to Dennis.  They played to a tape of him singing Do You Wanna Dance, but it was barely acknowledged.

Nothing between 1970-1973, one of my favorite time periods of Beach Boys music.  Hardly anything post Pet Sounds (I know that's a common gripe about the touring BB, but I'd heard that the sets were a little more varied this summer, and looking at setlist.fm, some of them were, but not this show). 

Overall, I think it was a very good show.  I'd go see them again next summer if the show is a little closer to me.  But, unless I knew for a fact they'd be doing some early 70s numbers, I wouldn't drive too far to see them.  Especially since, for a smaller venue, it was tough getting out of the parking lot. 

I'd also like to see The Beach Boys do a better job with advertising their shows.  I didn't realize that they played Selbyville, DE earlier in the summer.  That's a stones throw from Ocean City, Maryland, so that would've been an easy show for me to attend if I had been able to plan it during an OC visit.

They also played a show at a nearby Casino in Hanover, MD.  That show wasn't even on The Beach Boys official website. 

But, overall, if you're a Beach Boys fan, and there's a show near you, set aside any band member prejudices and go see it.

Andrew Clark is appearing at a handful of the North East dates with them this summer. He may be gone by now.

I must say he added a lot to the show I saw at Wolf Trap. Kokomo and Shut Down specifically sound so much better with their original sax parts.

Hi, couldn't help but notice that Scott/Jeff and Bruce have swapped sides in the on-stage line up (along with Dave when he is there).

I noticed they've been experimenting with the front lineup and also with recent setlists. This is part of the fun! I forget which recent show it was where Bruce was in the center. Thought that was odd. But always good to try new things.

Was hesitant at first on seeing this incarnation as I'm more a Brian fan ( Pet Sounds/Smile era), but after reading the posts of how good the Mike and Bruce version is live went ahead and got tickets for when they come to my town on 2/26/16 (Melbourne FL.)  Taking my 7 yr old daughter with me (who requests me to put on God only Knows and Surfs up on the stereo on a regular basis.)

Hey Blutarsky, wait 20 years and your daughter just might ask you to dance with at her wedding to....God Only Knows
I was very fortunate to have that exact experience and it was a total surprise.

@barsone: That's awesome! Would love to join you folks but I'm not allowed at concerts at the casino since I'm not 21... casino rules... otherwise my dad and I would totally go. Next year I'll be ready!

BUT. I did see the Vancouver show at the PNE. To all the Mike haters, I had a blast. After they played WIB everyone started getting up and actually dancing and singing along. It was really fun to be a show where everyone was having fun. So much energy! The old footage made me feel nostalgic... or however much you can feel about an era you didn't live in. As mentioned before, no early 70s stuff. I would have loved a Sunflower song but how much can you ask for Tongue. My dad really wanted them to play All Summer Long... with an hour and a half show I guess they cut a few songs from their previous setlist.

They played Darlin', which was great. I didn't look up setlists beforehand so everyone I heard was more or less a "pleasant surprise."

I have to say i'm pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable Farmer's Daugher is live. I heard it done at a soundcheck last year and it was a little flat but with Ike and Jeff doubling it sounds a lot better. Amazing how it takes 2 singers just to sound anything close to 1963 Brian and of course nothing will ever be better but Jeff and especially Ike's leads come close. I'd love to hear Ike do She Knows Me Too Well with Mike and Bruce he was fantastic when he did it with Brain and Al last year, i wanna hear Mike on that songs bass parts again.

I've been looking at the setlists on setlist.fm.  I'm glad to see that the Mike and Bruce (and sometimes David) Beach Boys seem to have gotten away from the 33 song surf/car sets.  I see they're doing between 40-50 songs at most shows. 

I did notice that they don't do In My Room.  Does anyone know if there's a particular reason?

They did In My Room in Hampton Beach, NH on July 10.

Setlist fm has the annoying habit of "lifting" the setlist from BBB without attribution to the forum, where it was posted, and making "edits" as it's own.

I must've missed that one. 

I was surprised they didn't play in at Wolf Trap, especially since they really seemed to concentrate on the pre Pet Sounds era at that show.  (Maybe because of the rare daytime start).
