Same here I don't hear any comparison to Carl's voice and Christians. He just has a bland kind of annoying voice. As much as I dislike Bruce's voice I also would prefer if he just sang these songs live on lead

Christian and Carl sound like they're related, but their voices are quite different. Christian's sister Hayleigh has a strong voice, and she sings with more Carl-like intonations.

Just saw that The Beach Boys are slated to perform at the rescheduled New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, which will be taking place for two weekends in October. The exact day/time TBD.
October is cooler than the usual time (April/May). However it’s Hurricane season…


There will be another 60s band...


Don't miss The Rolling Stones on October 13, the first-ever Jazz Fest Wednesday!
Tickets on sale Friday, July 30 at 10AM.
Visit nojazzfest.com for more information.

The Beach Boys Concert In Elk Grove Village (July 27, 2021) - 4K


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qK9xYrzeHuI


"Feel Flows" is in the set. Haven't found "It's about Time", but then I didn't watch the whole thing.

It will be interesting to see if this renewed push in some areas of the US to restrict and regulate both businesses and people's ability to go out and do things like see shows will have an effect on all the tours currently booked, especially the indoor venues.

I watched some of that Elk Grove concert and I have to tell you it really is not good. Mike and Bruce just don't sound good at all. And I have to say Christian love just doesn't sound right singing some of the songs, he does sing lead on it's about time and just doesn't do a good job on it. He seems too slow and too bland. It's a shame what's happened with this band now

I, too, just flipped through the vid. Vocals are rough across the band, not just M&B. Instrumentally, tight, but the lack of frequent performing and age is on grand display.

To your point, Scott sounds like he sang a portion of add some music to your day and he didn't sound good at all, very rough. And the guy who sings the falsetto part now who usually has been pretty good in the past just sounds like he's screeching now. Boy at 80 years old can Mike ust hang this up  already, what he's doing to the beach boy name and Legacy is awful.

The irony here is that after many months of rest between performances, the vocals sound tired.

I have found with many aging performers that the momentum is what keeps them going and their instrument (vocal or otherwise) in-check.

I worry that this will be a common situation with our classic bands of members age 70+ as they emerge out from the pandemic again.

Just re watched the video and it was Cowsil who sang the Add Some Music parts, and not real well. Watching alot of the rest of the so, I must add that IMHO Christian Love is a real weak spot in the vocals. Don't know what he contributes on the guitar, but vocally, his leads are weak, generally lagging behind the music a beat, and extremely bland. He now does the lead on Rhonda, and it remains a weak spot. Nepatism at it's best I guess, but the other guys in the vocal blend don't sound much better. Hard to believe the name f this band is the Beach Boys...such a downgrade from what I remember growing up in the 60s'/70s, not to mention the live performances in the 80's and 90's. Very weak.

This is EXACTLY why the name should be RETIRED and laid to rest. Let this collection of subpar wannabees continue under some other moniker but NOT under the Beach Boys name for god's sake! Unfortunately, as long as Mike Love is still around and being the moneygrubber he is, it's doubtful that will happen. Such a shame to see a once great band go down in flames like this.  Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Cry Cry

You guys are getting a bit ridiculous with this subltle and not so subtle Mike Love hate.  By My count this was a band that had 26 public performances since July of 2020, its a safe bet to say they "werent in the groove" when this performance was given.  Give the guys a chance to get back into the swing of things.  For a band that normally does 150 shows a year only doing 30 up to the date of this concert is tough.  Im sure that Brians band will be off when he gets back out there as well.   And for the love of Christ please keep in mind this is a shitty camera mic trying to pick up an extermely loud band being blasted at it.  Not all cameras/mics are created equal.

Dude, this is no attack on Mike Love, at least from me. Mind you, I don't care for the guy or his antics, but that has nothing to do with what I wrote. They sounded bad, even the younger guys and Christian in particular. Listen to the show, and what this great band has accomplished in the past. I don't believe additional "practicing" from more performances will improve much here, frankly, they sound lousy, and just  tired and old. If I owned the Beach Boys name, there's no way I would allow this act to rip apart a once proud legacy. Case closed.

Mike's band in the past has sounded tougher and tired when they do *too many* shows, though. Sometimes the tour schedules have them doing like 7, 8, 9, 10 shows in a row every day without a break, and there's often a lot of 7 shows in 8 days and 11 shows in 12 days, etc.

I have no reason to doubt a long layoff could be a factor in sounding rough, though the more shows they do, the less that seems to become a legit excuse.

There was a period of time after Totten really got the band squared away in past years that they sounded very good. Not particularly authentic, but undeniably professional and solid. I mean that as clinically and objectively as I can possibly be. It's just a lot of less distinctive voices in the vocal stacks, and a lot of backing members singing leads. Anyway, I do think in the last year or two, the band has sounded less tight. I think age *is* a factor, probably both for Mike/Bruce and some of the other guys. Too much time off or too many shows can both play a role as well.

And the band, going all the way back to the 90s, always sounds worse the more Stamos becomes involved, because he's literally an amateur musician.

A few hyperbolic comments aside, I think most of the comments about Mike's shows in this thread have been honest and not intended simply to attack. I think it's worth mentioning when Mike's band is sounding more rough than they have in quite some time. I think some of that would undoubtedly improve with time. Some other age-related issues may just be catching up and might not get particularly better.

I haven’t listened to this show yet (I will). But I will say that from what I saw on the 4th (via CNN’s special), Mike, Bruce, and Christian all sounded horrible. I thought Ike sounded pretty good, though. I couldn’t pick out Scott Totten or John Cowsill in the vocal mix but I’m stilll trying to train myself to hear individual parts of the harmony stacks.

You can't win with this crowd. If this was Brian and his band, they would be falling all over themselves, making excuses for poor performances.
I do wonder, though, with the resurgence in Covid cases, what will happen with live concerts in the next couple of months. The Beach Boys will be here Labor Day weekend, and I'm not sure that I want to be packed into a big crowd like I was 2 years ago.
On the other hand, it's always possible that this time could be the last time.

If I didn't have "Beach Boys" in a news feed I never would have noticed it, but there seems to be a different marketing strategy in play for Mike's shows, all published in the past week. Whatever the reasons, whatever the implications, if it's for a small cluster of tour dates or more overreaching in scope, it was hard to miss.

Check these links and headlines, and it literally jumps off the screen:

The special guest seems to be getting a bigger billing than the headline act.

Wow… Some marketing person crunched the numbers and realized that more people  attend the shows if they bill John Stamos in that way.

As ridiculous as it is, I can understand if it actually packs more people into the venue why they would do it.

But shameless to be so relentless in the marketing about Uncle Jesse.

 Whatever!. How embarrassing that Mike Love has to use the awful Stamos as a crutch to sell more tickets. Mike and Bruce with their band of unknowns are horrible enough but with Stamos in tow, I can't think of how the fake wannabe Beach Boys could be more embarrassing.
