2022 marks the 60th anniversary of the most influential musical ensemble to emerge, literally and figuratively, from the shores of America. The ongoing legacy of the Beach Boys as a live, performing entity has split into three separate factions-- Mike Love and Bruce Johnston's troupe, which operates under the brand name; former leader Brian Wilson's impressive ensemble; and co-founder Al Jardine, who performs not only with Brian, but in different touring configurations of his own.

In March of '22, Jardine embarked on a limited tour under the banner of "Family & Friends," a group featuring son Matt Jardine, Brian Wilson's daughters --Carnie and Wendy-- of Wilson Phillips fame, and four of the best musicians who've toiled with various Beach Boys iterations over the years.

This is a review of their maiden voyage.
