The Beach Boys In Concert At North Fork Theatre
Live Nation presents The Beach Boys Holiday Show at the North Fork Theatre at Westbury on Wednesday, December 13 at 8 p.m.
As 2006 enters the Holiday Season, The Beach Boys' Mike Love has just released "Santa's Goin' To Kokomo." The radio single offers fans a new holiday song to celebrate the season. The solo effort by Mike Love, "Santa's Goin' To Kokomo," is a fresh and fun take on The Beach Boys biggest career hit "Kokomo." The Beach Boys, despite their undisputed claim as the top icons of the endless summer, have a history of giving the world holiday classics such as "Little Saint Nick" and "Merry Christmas, Baby," both of which were co-authored by Mike Love. With "Santa's Goin' To Kokomo," Mike Love continues that tradition of spirit that every season should be celebrated in a spirit of fun, fun, fun. Mike Love sums up the song in a quote on the inside of the CD booklet,
"The holiday's have always been a time which we enjoyed the classic songs of the season. 'Santa's Goin' To Kokomo" is something fresh and new. We hope this song adds a lot of Fun, Fun, Fun to your celebration." Mike has recently completed work on his long awaited solo album.
Mike Love, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is lead singer and a founding member of The Beach Boys. In 1988, Love co-authored The Beach Boys' biggest hit, "Kokomo," the song skyrocketed to number one on the charts and was released commercially on the soundtrack to the hit movie "Cocktail." Mike Love currently tours as the lead singer with The Beach Boys performing over 150 concerts per year world-wide. Mike wrote the lyrics to The Beach Boys' first song, "Surfin'," released in 1961. He then co-authored eleven Top 10 singles in five years with cousin Brian Wilson, a string of hits including "Fun, Fun, Fun," "I Get Around," "Help Me Rhonda," "California Girls" and "Good Vibrations." The period between "Good Vibrations" (1966) and The Beach Boys' biggest selling hit "Kokomo" (1988) is one of the longest spans of time between number one records in history. This feat demonstrates the ageless, timeless appeal of The Beach Boys. Mike Love is the co-author of both of these smash hits.
