If seeing The Beach Boys tour for their Golden Anniversary wasn’t enough, now you can check out their kids who recently formed a cover band in tribute to their famous fathers.
Billed as “the next chapter in the story of America’s band”, California Saga is formed by eight of the Beach Boys’ offspring, including Al Jardine's sons Adam and Matt, Brian Wilson's daughters Carnie and Wendy, Mike Love's kids, Ambha and Christian, and the sons of Carl and Dennis Wilson, Justyn and Carl B. Billy Hinsche, a longtime sideman whose sister was married to Carl, and Carnie’s husband Rob Bonfiglio, rounds out the lineup.
“We’re not just getting up there because we’re ‘the children of …’” Adam Jardine told the Ventura County Star. “We’re celebrating these songs that we love.”
California Saga opened up two Southern California shows for their dads. Thankfully, instead of rehashing the Beach Boys’ biggest hits, they focus on their obscure material.
