Al Jardine
An Evening with Al Jardine

Original Founding Member of The Beach Boys

Alan (aka “Al”) Jardine, guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter, is best known for being one of the founding members of the California-based group The Beach Boys. Al was born in Lima, Ohio, on September 3, 1942, and met Brian, Carl and Dennis Wilson, Mike Love and David Marks after his family moved to Hawthorne, California. They formed The Beach Boys and with their perfect harmonies and original tunes about surfing, beaches, hot rods, and California girls, became the rock 'n' roll voice of the West Coast. Al continued to tour with The Beach Boys throughout the ’70s, 80’s and 90’s and left the band after Carl Wilson’s passing in 1998.

In 2001, Al was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award Grammy as a member of The Beach Boys and released his own albums, including his first solo album A Postcard From California in 2010. In 2012, Al joined Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and David Marks for a new Beach Boys album, That's Why God Made the Radio, and The Beach Boys went on a 50th-anniversary reunion tour. In 2016 and continuing through 2018, Al joined Brian Wilson for a 50th-anniversary world tour of The Beach Boys’ timeless masterpiece Pet Sounds. The album features such classics as “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows” and “Sloop John B,” a song Al learned from The Kingston Trio and then introduced to Brian with a new chord arrangement to fit The Beach Boys vocal style. It became a huge international hit and helped propel Pet Sounds into the top of the charts.

In 2018, Al began playing solo shows on a tour featuring songs and stories from his early days to his most recent solo album A Postcard from California. Al, along with his son Matt Jardine and vocalist/musician Jeff Alan Ross, delivers an intimate show full of hits and rarities combined with never-before-heard stories (and rare pictures and vide
