John Stamos Joins The Beach Boys in New York

Full House star John Stamos performed with The Beach Boys at New York’s Beacon Theatre last night. Stamos—who drummed with the group for a bit in the ’80s and featured the Beach Boys on his kidcom a handful of times—introduced the group before the show and joined the band on drums at the end of their first set. After a video of deceased band co-founder Dennis Wilson malfunctioned, Stamos also provided lead vocals on a song he recorded with his fake band Jesse & The Rippers on Full House (on most nights the surviving Beach Boys sing alongside a video of Dennis Wilson during the song). At the end of the set, Stamos returned for a third time to play drums, guitar and congas. The actor also sat in with The Beach Boys at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in late April. The Beach Boys will return to the Beacon this evening.
