Before he found fame among the palm trees and surf of California, Beach Boy Al Jardine lived on the snowy East Coast. On April 28, his hometown of Rochester, NY will pay tribute to him by inducting him into its Music Hall of Fame.
The Beach Boys co-founder lived in Rochester as a child before moving to the Golden State. In a statement, he says, “I’m honored to be included in the Rochester Music Hall of Fame Class of 2019 and can’t wait to get back to the town I grew up in…see you all April 28th!”
Jardine will perform a short set with his son, Matt, at the induction ceremony. Tickets and information can be found at RochesterMusic.org.
Other musicians who are in the Rochester Music Hall of Fame include Foreigner’s Lou Gramm, Gary Lewis of Gary Lewis & the Playboys, famed drummer Steve Gadd, who’s played with Paul Simon, James Taylor and Eric Clapton, and legendary bass player Tony Levin, best known for his work with King Crimson and Peter Gabriel.
