Performing Live at Universal Orlando Mardi Gras
This Saturday, guests can sing along to their favorite hits by The Beach Boys as they perform
live in concert at Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras celebration.
Often referred to as “America’s Band,” The Beach Boys are the No. 1 selling American band of all
time. Their summer beach party image and surf rock musical style have made them a household name
for generations with 36 U.S. Top 40 hits and 56 Hot 100 Hits to date. The band has earned
numerous accolades, including induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy
Lifetime Achievement Award. “California Girls,” “I Get Around,” “Wipe Out,” “Kokomo,” “Surfin’
USA” and “Don’t Worry Baby” are among The Beach Boys’ most memorable hits.
At Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras, nationally renowned musical acts combine with an authentic
Mardi Gras parade, dozens of colorfully costumed performers, authentic Cajun cooking, and
hand-picked New Orleans bands to capture the look, feel and fun of New Orleans – all inside
Universal Studios Florida. This year’s ultimate street party runs every Saturday and other
select nights through April 23, and is included in regular admission to Universal Studios
Florida. For more information, visit www.universalorlando.com/mardigras.
