Sail Oncaptures the harmonies and attention to details of a real Beach Boys experience and they are bringing it to the Corning Opera House Cultural Center on Thursday, March 7. Executive Director, De Heaton says, “We are bringing Sail On back for a return engagement due to the high demand after last year’s performance. This is as close as you are going to get to an authentic Beach Boys Concert Experience. Our audience loved them!”

Members of Sail On focus on performing The Beach Boys to sheer perfection. They have performed with Brian Wilson’s band, The Zombies, Earth Wind & Fire, and Cheap Trick, including three nights filling in for Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, while accompanied by the famous Nashville Symphony.  Wyatt Funderburk (bass/vocals) released his first record as a 1990s teenager, works as a Nashville musician, songwriter and producer.
