I didn't get it. I thought this was a show that would emulate the Beach Boys with some good harmonies, etc. Turns out it is two guys & two gals singing Beach Boy songs in the first half of the show. They were "good singers" but not really good entertainers. The harmonies fell flat a bit. The choreography was mediocre. The worst part is they started the 2nd half of the show singing several songs from the Mamas & Papas. Seriously! In a show about the Beach Boys. I didn't like the originals and a karaoke copy was even worse. This is the first show I have seen in Branson that was a big disappointment.

"Singers were good, but lacked something, was average."

This was our last show of the week, and after viewing so many other shows this was only ‘average’. We love the Beach Boy and oldie music, and the 4 singers were very talented. Maybe it just lacked some ‘extras’ that other shows offered such as live music, better set design (very minimal here), and just not sure what else. It just seemed a bit of a let down after seeing Pierce Arrow twice, Tribute to George Strait with Gordy/Debbie, Noah and Reza.

"Beach Boys California Dreamin' for the first time"

My friend and I went last week to see Beach Boys CA. Dreamin'. I had booked something else, but since the virus has come along, some shows have still not opened up. Even though it was a 5:00 show, instead of later, I decided to book it. There are 4 people that do the singing and dancing, and they are very good. The show is a very fast pace show. In between all the costume changes they make, they are showing on the screen what was going on back in the 60's. My only disappointment was that when they stopped to take a break, and came back and did the 2nd half show, the show was about an hour and half.

Beach Boys California Dreamin in Branson, Mo was an awesome show! They were all very talented and entertaining. I would highly recommend it to anyone who grew up in the 60s and 70s and loved The Beach Boys.
