I can now check off being a 'Beach Boy' from my bucket list. This year has been amazing so far! It started off with a bus trip to historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay back in January. I celebrating my 40th birthday on the set of the Today Show in New York City, and reconnected with some old friends in the city that never sleeps. I've been touring the country with NKOTB' Danny Wood for the past four months, and last but certainly not least, I performed alongside Justin Ploof in a tribute to my favorite band of all-time.

My first musical memories involve southern California's best export, The Beach Boys. My mom was a huge fan, and turned me on to the iconic sounds of Mike, Carl, Dennis, Brian, Al, David and Bruce. I've loved and enjoyed them ever since, and was able to pay tribute to the music that inspired me to be an entertainer in the first place. Below are some videos my wife took of the amazing shows Justin Ploof and The Throwbacks put on at Pioneer Place on Fifth in downtown St. Cloud. I'm wearing my newsboy cap (just like Mike use too).
