The Beach Boys will perform “Holiday Harmonies” at 8 pm on Friday, December 17 at the Soaring Eagle Casino, 6800 Soaring Eagle Blvd., Mt. Pleasant.

For half a century, the Beach Boys have symbolized a sort of Californian lifestyle, with sunny hits such as “Surfin ‘USA”, “Fun, Fun, Fun”, “California Girls” and “Good Vibrations”. But the group is also a holiday staple for their Christmas single “Little Saint Nick”, written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love, as well as other original songs collected on “The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album” in 1964.

The group has sold over 100 million records worldwide and received 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold Record awards. The Rock And Roll Hall of Famers was also honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award. In five decades of touring, the Beach Boys have performed more than any major rock band in history.

The Beach Boys first released their Christmas album in 1964, featuring the hit “Little Saint Nick” and four other original songs as well as seasonal standards. (Capital records)

This holiday concert will feature the group’s co-founder, singer and lyricist Love, as well as longtime member Bruce Johnston, music director Scott Totten, Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill (singer and drummer for The Cowsills), Keith Hubacher and Randy Leago. Founding members Brian Wilson and Al Jardine sit on it.
