2017 Special Guests

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers

For five decades, The Beach Boys — America’s first pop band to reach the 50-year milestone — has recorded and performed the music that has become the world’s favorite soundtrack to summer. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and recipients of The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, The Beach Boys are a beloved American institution that remains iconic around the world.

On Saturday, August 12th, The Beach Boys will join conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra for a night of music, dancing and fireworks at one of Nantucket’s best beaches.

The Beach Boys follow previous special musical guests for the Boston Pops on Nantucket concert including last year’s act, Kenny Loggins, as well as former special guests Matthew Morrison, Michael Cavanaugh, Carly Simon, Linda Eder, Joel Grey, and the late Natalie Cole.
