/ -- The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network is proud and excited to announce that The Beach Boys will headline the second annual Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Concert near Dayton, Ohio this June. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 26th at the Fraze Pavilion Box Office and online at www.ticketmaster.com
Few, if any, acts can match The Beach Boys' concert presence, spirit and performance. Opening for The Beach Boys will be another hugely, popular vocal group in American music history, The Letterman. The show promises to be a fabulous music event, long to be remembered by music fans.
Without question, The Beach Boys are the most successful and important American band of the rock music era. Their harmonies and infectious rock beats combine into memorable hits about teenage life in California in the 60s – surfing, cars, and girls. They first rode the waves of success in 1961 with their regional debut hit "Surfin," By 1966 they had emerged as one of America's top pop groups by releasing eleven top 10 singles in five years including, "Help Me Rhonda," "Surfer Girl," "California Girls," "Good Vibrations," and "I Get Around." The band's biggest selling hit came in 1988 with "Kokomo." The Beach Boys were honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2001 Grammy Awards, and 1966's "Pet Sounds" has been listed by VH-1 as the #3 album in Rock & Roll History.
By the early 60's, The Lettermen had already had a few hits, and were a tremendous success. In almost every poll in the early 60's, The Lettermen were named Best New Group or Best Vocal Group. The 60's and early 70's saw The Lettermen score over 25 chart hit singles, including "Theme From A Summer Place," " Goin' Out of My Head," "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," and "Hurt So Bad."
Terri and her legacy continue to touch and change lives every day thanks to the work of Terri's Life & Hope Network, a 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization, established to educate and assist families.
