|Yes, those are (sort of) Beach Boys.|
Amid the sunshine and glittering surf of a Sunday afternoon on Lake Worth beach, the scene was hard to miss. A cluster of tanned, leggy college girls in short, tight shorts chased a volleyball around the net with a rumpled-looking group of guys in sweaty T-shirts. Occasionally, they were interrupted by shouts from an earnest if not entirely enthusiastic cheerleading team.
The ladies were not your ordinary beach beauties. They were chaste coeds from Palm Beach Atlantic University, the private Christian school in West Palm Beach where sins such as drinking and premarital sex are strictly prohibited. The men, meanwhile, were modern members of the Beach Boys, the bubble-gum '60s band that has long extolled the virtues of "California Girls."
Granted, these guys were far too young to be original Beach Boys. But they were part of the reincarnated band playing under that name at the Kravis Center last night.More »
