Beach Boys at Indian Ranch, Webster, Massachusetts - July 10, 2016

Featuring old Pet Sounds at Indian Ranch…

The Indian Ranch lakeside venue is like none other I’ve seen, amidst a campground space, boats bobbing (catching a free show) a covered Greek and Roman style open air outdoor-style with rising theater seating and close-to-stage seating for The Beach Boys to perform, despite the experts prognostications to the contrary. Pet Sounds cuts “outdoors" is always such a treat.

No video screen effects but leading off with the booming Do it Again (oh, the Great Summer of ’68!) was great compensation and in attendance was a 102 year old woman by the name of Philomena who came to her first BB show at the tender age of 100, two years ago! Upon getting a shout-out from the stage - the audience rose to recognize and applaud her!

And the setlist from Mike Peters…

If you want to go to Indian Ranch, you need to get up early after Saturday night! It is an early afternoon show (2:00 pm) is in Massachusetts near the Connecticut border making it a show that is locally accessible to that state and not too far from Rhode Island as well. From young ones, right up to Philomena, at 102 - it was just an after noon of Fun, Fun Fun! Indian Ranch loved The Beach Boys!
