Virtual Tuesday Night Record Club: The Beach Boys, Pet Sounds

We have decided to continue with Record Club in virtual format using the ZOOM app. When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation. CLICK HERE for more information on how to use ZOOM.

It’s just like book club but with albums! With new advances in technology, the way we consume music through our devices, apps and on demand streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes is making the idea of the “album” as an art form extinct. Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss. This event will feature The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds.

About WB3
Debuting in the U.S. in 2012, We Banjo 3 has since emerged as fast-rising touring darlings in the country that two of the members now call home. The Galway, Ireland, and Nashville-based quartet––comprised of two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley––continually push musical boundaries while maintaining an unwavering devotion to the essential audience experience. WB3 seamlessly converge the shared and varied traditions of Americana, Bluegrass, and Celtic music with pop-sensible song craft to create a truly unique and gratifying signature sound.

With recent stunning performances at such broad ranging festivals Merlefest, BottleRock, Summercamp, ROMP, Wintergrass and others, enthusiasts of almost every genre of music are taking notice. We Banjo 3 recently released a recording of Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers,” the title track from Petty’s classic 1994 album. The recording, which was premiered by SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction channel, features Steve Ferrone on drums. Ferrone played in Petty’s band, and the Wildflowers album marked the first recording he did with Petty.
