Brian Wilson and Friends  

Brian Wilson and Friends

Brian Wilson and Friends was recorded live in Las Vegas for Chicago television's prestigious Soundstage program, in December 2014. This Soundstage special aired on PBS April 2015 and was offered as a pledge piece for PBS in DVD and Blu-ray configurations. This is the first time an audio CD has been offered and bonus tracks have been added not included in the original PBS airing. The program features Brian Wilson's phenomenal touring band (including long-time Beach Boys sidemen Blondie Chaplin and Ricky Fataar) along with special guests Mark Isham, Kacey Musgraves, Nate Ruess (front man of Fun) and She & Him. The tremendous set list on the DVD and CD includes the Beach Boys classics' 'Good Vibrations,' 'Don't Worry Baby,' 'Wild Honey,' 'Wouldn't It Be Nice' and many more.
