Al Jardine Family & Friends Tour
Al Jardine of the Beach Boys, with Carnie and Wendy Wilson of Wilson Phillips
Alan (aka “Al”) Jardine, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, is best known for being one of the founding members of the California-based group The Beach Boys. Al was born in Lima, Ohio, on September 3, 1942 and met Brian, Carl and Dennis Wilson, Mike Love and David Marks after his family moved to Hawthorne, California. Al played mainly rhythm guitar and sang harmony vocals with The Beach Boys and sang lead on their No. 1 hit “Help Me, Rhonda.” In 2001, Al was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award Grammy as a member of The Beach Boys.
In 2010, Al released his first studio album, A Postcard From California, which featured guest appearances from Neil Young, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Steve Miller, Glen Campbell, Gerry Beckley & Dewey Bunnell (America) and Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), plus all the remaining Beach Boys. The environmentally-themed album features Al’s originals “Don’t Fight The Sea,” “Looking Down The Coast” and “San Simeon” in addition to new versions of classic Beach Boys songs “Help Me, Rhonda” and “California Saga.”
In 2022, Al announced a very special show called the Al Jardine Family & Friends Tour, featuring Carnie and Wendy Wilson, who are Brian Wilson’s daughters and Matt Jardine, who is Al’s son and has received rave reviews from both fans and critics for his stunning lead vocals on songs like “God Only Knows” and “Don’t Worry Baby.” Performing the hits of The Beach Boys and Wilson Phillips, it’s a family affair not to be missed!
